Almond Chocolate Tart


We in Malaysia had a very exciting weekend as Sunday, 5th May 2013   was our  long awaited 13th General Election.  The day seemed to drag on at a snail's pace and to keep myself busy, I made these nutty tarts so that we can snack on them while waiting eagerly for the results to be announced.  The nibbed almonds blended very well with the bittersweet chocolate to which I've added some Kahlua.

Herbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Gao

H erbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Ga o literally translated means 'Tortoise Jelly' is one of my family's favourite desserts.  It's much more economical to prepare this at home for you'll need to fork out between Rm 9 to Rm 11 for a bowl of this cooling dessert in any of those herbal tea outlets.  This soothing jelly, served chilled, is supposed to be able to help reduce our body heat, helps to get rid of toxins and is believed to be good for the skin thus culminating a healthier complexion.
