Tarte Tropézienne is a classic French dessert. You're going to love this brioche filled with cream (pastry cream folded into whipped cream) !


A classic French recipe, this is a cream filled brioche
This week I'm sharing one of my favorite dessert : Tarte Tropézienne ! What the heck is that, you're asking ? Well, "Tropezian Tart" is a dessert that's originally from St Tropez. It's a brioche that's filled with a mix of pastry cream and whipped cream, and it was apparently named by none other that Brigitte Bardot !

I first made one a couple months ago, and gave a couple slices to my grandparents, who spent a lot of holiday time around St Tropez. My grandma assured me there was nothing missing, not even orange blossom water, which I'd seen added to some recipes. So if you give this recipe a try, you'll most definitely feel like you're seating in the sun in the South of France ;)

Triple Chocolate Brownies

Milk and white chocolate chips are added to a dark chocolate brownie base to make these brownies a delicious triple threat !

It was so hot outside the day I made these Millionaire's Shortbread that the caramel wasn't cooling down and the chocolate top wouldn't set. I had to put it in the freezer for 20+ minutes so it would set, and even when taking pictures of it, I had to go back and forth between the freezer and my photo set-up. Why am I telling you this ? Because a few days later the weather did a 180 and we had rain and wind. What does that weather call for ? Chocolate brownies, of course.

See, I think this is called Millionaire's Shortbread because a small bite of this thing has about a million calories. I could have eaten the whole plate and then I'd have gained six pounds. Millionaire's Shortbread is that delicious but also very not healthy (I mean, hello, biscuit base + caramel center + two types of chocolate to top it all off = me not looking like a supermodel on the beach this summer. Heh, who cares.)

Also, fun fact : Millionaire's Shortbread tastes like Twix bars ! So now you'll know how to make them. I suggest you make a batch and impress everyone, tell them you spent a reaaally long time laboring over "homemade Twix bars" when in reality it's super easy and relatively quick to make ;)
