I absolutely love tarts, the last one I made disappeared so fast so this time I disguised it in the fridge, haha!

This blood orange tart sits on a chocolate crust that is out of this world! Chocolate + Orange = Delicious.

This creamy blood orange tart uses butter in the crust. To make this dessert fully vegan just sub vegan butter in the crust and you have yourself a dreamy vegan tart!
