let dough chill for 30 minutes. roll out to desired thickness or press gently into the tart pan.
bake for 15-20 minutes, using pie beads to stop crust from rising. if you do not have pie beads, use foil wrapped rice or dried beans. anything to help create weight in the center.

immediately remove pan from heat & add the butter cubes + chopped chocolate. stir vigorously until the mixture is silky & smooth.
