Method

 
Roll the pastry out and place in the tart dish. Pierce the bottom with a fork and bake at 180°c for 10 minutes until golden and cooked. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.

Place the chocolate and cream in a microwaveable bowl and cook for 1 minute. Stir to combine and repeat until the chocolate has melted. You could also do this over a double boiler on the stove.

Allow the mixture to cool down slightly and beat in the butter. The mixture will thicken slightly and it will be very glossy. At this stage, the mixture should resemble shop-bought custard. If it is thinner, melt more chocolate and beat it in.

Pour the truffle mixture into the baked tart case and place in the fridge to set. This mixture takes at least 2-3 hours to set.

Top with the sliced strawberries.
