  2. 2. Working With Sugar Free Belgian Chocolate If you want to prepare a great Belgian chocolate recipe but want to cut back on the fat or take out the sugar for health reasons, for instance if you have diabetes, then you will need to work with sugar free Belgian chocolate. The good news is that you can prepare any Belgian chocolate recipe you want to and make it sugarless, by simply replacing the regular Belgian chocolate bar with sugar free Belgian chocolate.
  3. 3. Belgian Chocolate Ganache Tart One of the best sugar free Belgian chocolate recipes by far that you can prepare is the Belgian chocolate ganache tart.
  4. 4. Sugar free Belgian chocolate For this sugar free Belgian chocolate recipe you will need a basic Flemish pie crust, and 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate, 1 cup heavy cream, 1 tablespoon espresso powder, ½ cup confectioners’ sugar, 2 large eggs, 2 large egg yolks, 1 large egg yolk mixed with 1 tablespoon water, cocoa powder for garnish, confectioners’ sugar for garnish, and whipped cream for serving.
  5. 5. Preparation process The preparation process of this recipe is incredibly simple. You start by generously buttering a 9-inch tart pan with a removable bottom, and then you roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface into a circle, about a ¼” thick.
  6. 6. Tart pan with the dough Line the tart pan with the dough, and then trim the edges and prick the bottom evenly with a fork to create a few air holes. You want to refrigerate this for about 20 minutes and then preheat the oven to 425ºF.
  7. 7. Let the crust cool completely Now you need to line the bottom of the tar pan with aluminum foil and fill about two-thirds with dry rice or beans. Bake this for about 10 minutes and reduce the heat to 375ºF and bake until the pastry is lightly browned. Remove the weights and then let the crust cool completely.
  8. 8. Prepare the chocolate filling While you are waiting for this to cool you should prepare the chocolate filling. Place the chocolate pieces in a mixing bowl, and then in a medium-sized saucepan you want to bring the cream, espresso, and confectioners’ sugar to a quick boil, and then immediately pour the hot cream mixture over the chopped chocolate and stir with a wooden spoon until the chocolate is completely melted and smooth.
  9. 9. Chill in the refrigerator Finally for this sugar free Belgian chocolate recipe you need to beat in the eggs and egg yolks one at a time, and then brush the bottom and the sides of the pastry with the egg wash. Lastly you will need to bake, allow to cool, chill in the refrigerator, and then garnish.
