Chocolate Truffle Tart with Frosted Blueberries

Stripping back a traditional recipe and giving it a new a look, taste, and feel is something I particularly enjoy, not least this simple and elegant tart, which took me a number of weeks and over 10 blocks of premium dark chocolate to get just right.
