Chocolate Mirror Glaze

Ruby Double Chocolate Dessert

Ruby chocolate is more than two years old and there are still not enough recipes outthere. I want to change that!

Recipe makes 6 desserts

Pâte Sucrée/ Sugar Dough


62 g soft butter, soft
50 g powdered sugar, sieved
25 g eggs, room temperature
125 g flour, sieved
2 g salt


Mix soft butter in a bowl.
Add powdered sugar and mix until it’s just combined.
Gradually add the eggs and mix. (Always make sure that everything has the same temperature when you make cakes, sponge cakes, etc. it homogenizes better and you’ll get more airy and fluffy cakes)
Add flour, salt and knead until smooth. You can do this in a KitchenAid or with a spatula.
Wrap in plastic and rest in the fridge overnight. (the thinner the dough the faster it cools)
Roll out the cooled dough to 3 mm.
Cool for 30 minutes and then bake in the oven at 175°C for 10-15 minutes and let them cool completely. Make sure it doesn’t get brown. The tart is perfect when it has no color.

You can freeze the leftover sugar dough for up to 2 months.
