S'mores Tarts

I have always loved S'mores they are so delicious! 
Now I really wanted to try making something new so I decided to make s'mores tarts which is something I've thought about making for a long time! It is like a deconstructed S'more. You have the cracker in the crust, the chocolate in the chocolate filling and then the marshmallow on top. 
The chocolate filling make these tarts very filling in general (but obviously still delicious!). 
They take about two hours to make. 

What you need:  
For the crust:                                                            Extra kitchen supplies
120g butter that is room temperature                         Kitchen torch
1dl confectioners sugar                                                Thermometer

2 tablespoons cocoa
3dl flour 
1 egg yolk


For the topping: 
300 62% chocolate
1.5 dl powdered sugar
2dl heavy cream
2 large egg yolks
3 tablespoons unsalted butter


For the marshmallow topping: 
2 1/4 teaspoons unflavored gelatin 
1.25 dl cold water 
2 dl granulated sugar
1/2 cup corn syrup 
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


How you make them: 
Start with the crust, 
Step1: Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
Step2: Mix all the ingredients together, wrap it in saran wrap and let it set in the refrigerator for 20 minutes. 
Step3: roll it out to a big circle that is about 4mm thick and then place it in small pans with loose bottoms and use a knife to remove the dough that is not deeded along the edges.
Step4: poke small holes in the bottom with a fork and then bake them in the oven for about 15 minutes till they're golden brown.
Step5: Take them out, let them cool and turn of the oven because you won't be needing it anymore. 

Continue with the filling: 
Step6Chop the chocolate into small pieces and combine the chocolate and the powdered sugar in a heatproof bowl. 
Step7: In a saucepan bring the cream to a gentle simmer and then add it to the chocolate and stir until the chocolate has melted
Step8: Place the bowl with the mixture on top of a sauce pan with simmering water in it until the mixture has become smooth.
Step9: Whisk the egg yolks. In a separate heatproof bowl take about half a cup (1dl) of the chocolate and mix it together with the eggs, then pour the mixture with the eggs into the other mixture and whisk to combine it well. 
Step10: Fill the crusts with ganashe and then put them in the refrigerator. 

The last step is making the marshmallow topping: 
Step11: Pour 1.1dl of the water into a small bowl and add the gelatin and let it dissolve.
Step12: In a small sauce pan combine the rest of the water (1.2dl), the sugar and half of the corn syrup (1.1dl). Bring it to a boil and let it cook until it reaches 115 degrees C.
Step13: In a separate bowl or a stand mixer combine the rest of the corn syrup (1.2dl) and the gelatin mixture (if the gelatin hasn't completely dissolved microwave it for about ten seconds). Mix for about two minutes on low speed and then on high speed for 5 minutes.
Step14: Slowly add the sugar syrup and when you have added all of it mix on high speed for about five minutes. 
(I wanted my marshmallow to not be fluffy so that it looked like it had melted on top of the chocolate but if you want yours to be fluffy continue mixing it until it has trippeled in size). 
Step15: Take the tarts out of the refrigerator and pour the marshmallow topping on top of them.
Step16: Torch the marshmallow with a kitchen torch to get the brown color.
