Expert Tips

Make this impressive chocolate-cherry tart up to 24 hours ahead of time and store covered in the fridge. Instead of using grated chocolate, garnish the top of the pie with whipped cream and chocolate curls. Or, garnish each slice with a dollop of whipped cream and a well-drained, stemmed maraschino cherry or a chocolate-covered cherry!
