A Sugarhill Valentine

Posted by Jilly Mabbitt at 15:24
It's nearing the end of January, and what a wonderful beginning to 2013 it's been. And with the end of January comes the beginning of February - and, Valentine's Day.

So for us low-carbers, dieters, diabetics, and general healthy eaters, to help us avoid all the chocolatey temptations that may be in store for us, I have written us a recipe for some deliciously tempting (but not naughty) heart shaped Chocolate Tarts.

Ingredients:
Base:
130g butter
220g ground almonds*
6 tbsp. Splenda*
2 eggs
pinch of salt

Chocolate filling:
3x 85g bars (255g total) Cavalier dark chocolate*
255ml double cream
tbsp. Splenda*
tbsp. butter
2 drops vanilla extract

*ingredients can be bought here

First, set the oven to 180°C.

For the base, in a bowl, mix the ground almonds, butter, splenda and salt to make a breadcrumb-like mixture. Then mix in one of the eggs to make a sticky dough. Squeeze the dough down into heart shaped cases (makes 8-10). Brush the cases with the remaining beaten egg. Bake for 20 minutes and then leave to cool.
For the filling, heat the cream, splenda and vanilla on the hob. Melt the chocolate with the butter in the microwave, then add to the cream until completely melted. Fill your tart cases, chill for and hour, then serve with some raspberries or strawberries and some extra cream!

The dress I am wearing in my video is the beautiful Windsor dress from Sugarhill Boutique. Sugarhill Boutique is a Brighton based clothing line, set up by brother and sister Pawel and Aleksandra Przedpelska. They make adorable dresses, combining vintage styles with pretty prints and collars. I decided to take to the streets of Brighton myself, to show you a few of my favourites:
