This tart should come with a warning: “Proceed with caution!”

Its luscious chocolate ganache filling will reel you in while the raspberry preserve center is what will keep you coming back, bite after bite; sliver after sliver.  Cutting the richness so that you never think, “Oh this is too much” and instead  are constantly leering into the pan thinking, “Well, I suppose one more can’t hurt.”
