Makes 4


2 sheets frozen ready-rolled shortcrust pastry, partially thawed
200g dark chocolate, chopped
1/2 cup light thickened cream
2 x 55g Turkish Delight chocolate bars, cut into 1cm-thick slices
1/3 cup flaked almonds, toasted


1. Preheat oven to 200°C/180°C fan-forced. Grease four 2cm-deep, 12cm (base) round fluted flan tins. Cut each pastry sheet in half diagonally to make 4 triangles. Line base and side of each tin with 1 piece of pastry. Trim edges. Place on a baking tray. Refrigerate for 20 minutes.
2. Bake pastry for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden. Cool for 5 minutes.
3. Meanwhile, place chocolate and cream in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high (100%) for 1 minute or until smooth, stirring with a metal spoon halfway during cooking. Arrange Turkish Delight over base of tarts. Top with chocolate mixture, then almonds. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm. Serve.


Variation: Use chopped Bounty chocolate bars instead of Turkish Delight.

Storage tip: Pastry cases can be made up to 3 days ahead. Store in an airtight container until needed.
