Valentine’s Day Chocolate Tart – Design*Sponge

As far as holidays go, Valentine’s Day can be pretty divisive. On one hand, you have those blissful coupled folks who wait for February 14th with excited anticipation—awaiting a day of cute handmade love notes and intimate dinners at fancy restaurants. On the other, you have those who vehemently, bitterly despise the holiday, begrudging its invention by greeting card companies as cause for singleton-shaming. Then, you have people like myself who fall somewhere in the middle—the oftentimes irritatingly smug ones who make claims like “Valentine’s Day is about all love!” while shoveling heart-shaped candies into their mouths. [Indeed, at least as far as I’m concerned, any opportunity to celebrate (especially when there is copious amounts of candy involved) is good by me—single or not.] Still, despite the vastly differing opinions on Valentine’s Day, I think we can all agree that the holiday gets at least one thing right. Chocolate. Whether February the 14th finds you immersed in starry-eyed romance, wallowing in the abysmal depths of self-pity (we’ve all been there), or just plain old apathetic about the whole thing—chocolate makes literally everything better. Bearing this in mind, we asked the ever-awesome Johnny Battles (yes, that’s his real name) of Charleston’s Sweeteeth Chocolate to contribute a recipe for the big day. And we’ll tell you right now—this scrumptious chocolate tart will help you get over any Valentine’s Day hangups. Dig in! —Max
