  13. After tart crust is completely cooled, in a microwave safe bowl, break chocolate bar into small pieces, add heavy cream and microwave for 40 second. Remove from the microwave and stir with a whisk. Check the consistency, if its too dry add more heavy cream, then add back to microwave for another 20 second.
  14. Pour chocolate into tart crust and spread evenly, then refrigerate the tart crust for at least 20 minutes before use.
