Chicken Farm Bakers' Project #11 Welcome To Rain With Tart & Pie: Chocolate Custard Tart

Chicken Farm Bakers' Project #11 Welcome To Rain With Tart & Pie: Chocolate Custard Tart, and the theme for this month is very suitable for me.
I start getting a cold from the first of June and still, well the weather here is very bad, rainy and hot, haha, I just don't have the right word to describe it >*<. So, the best thing for me (and for this month) is everything that I like to eat ^_^, such as chocolate and whipped cream, haha. I choose to make the chocolate custard tart, the mixture of soft chocolate filling that is going very well with the lightly sweeten whipped cream, another comfort food for me. I found this tart is very comforting, and delicious, haha, it reminds me of the first love (a cold chocolate drink and whipped cream, ^ ^), and I just can't stop longing for chocolate. But this tart is not a dark side of my love, it's the children side, the mild flavor of the chocolate custard filling, that really make you eat it more. So, if you feel the same as me, (I really don't want to go outside), take your time to make this tart and you might fell in love with this chocolate tart too.
