Oh friends, Constance here, and I’d like to introduce you to my newest cure for the Monday blues (and my newest addiction!), the dark chocolate tart. You guys, make it a weekly tradition and you have my word–it will make you look forward to the beginning of the work week!

Whether it’s a Monday, a special birthday treat, or a gift for a friend, this little tart is sure to impress & guess what, in true LK fashion, it’s easier than you might think!
