Chocolate pastry is tricky to work with, but don’t be afraid to repair the pastry in the tart tin if it tears (patch it or press it together). You can even re-roll the whole lot if you need to.
If sugar syrup oozes from the meringue, don’t worry – it only adds to the gooey texture of the filling.
Make the pastry case up to 2 days in advance and keep somewhere cool in its tin, well wrapped in cling film.
