Yield: Two 4-inch tarts

For crust:

4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
pinch of salt
1/2 cup flour
4 tablespoons flour (as needed)

For filling:

1/2 cup chopped dark chocolate, approx. 6 ounces
1/3 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon blood orange extract
1 tablespoon blood orange zest

For topping:

dehydrated blood orange discs
sea salt

Instructions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix melted butter, sugar, salt and vanilla in a bowl. Slowly add flour, mixing until dough sticks together. Add more flour if needed.
2. Sprinkle dough into the bottom of two 4-inch tart tins, pressing the dough firmly on the bottom and up the sides. Cover with plastic wrap, and set in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
