This simple chocolate tart recipe is easy to make and tastes great on its own, with ice cream, or as a starting point for something more adventurous!
Base Ingredients (to make 4 tarts)
- 300g chocolate biscuits/cookies (Oreos, Choc Ripple, etc)
- 125g unsalted butter
- 200ml cream
- 1 x vanilla bean (optional)
- 200g dark chocolate, roughly chopped
- 50g unsalted butter
To make the base
Using a food processor, blend the cookies to create a fine crumb. Melt the butter and add to the cookie crumbs. Blend until well combined.
Place the mixture into a four 12cm fluted tart tins, pressing mixture onto the bottom and up the sides evenly. Chill the crusts while preparing the chocolate ganache.
To make the ganache
In a medium saucepan, add cream and seeds from vanilla bean. Bring cream to the boil. Remove from heat, add chopped chocolate and butter, stir until melted and well combined.
Pour the chocolate ganache over each tart base. Chill for at least 2 hours before removing from tart pan to serve. Enjoy!
This tart recipe is very easy to alter to suit your tastes. Try adding a hint of spice such as chilli or cinnamon. Make a chocolate peanut butter tart by replacing some of the butter with peanut butter. Or try adding crushed raspberries or strawberries onto the base of the tart before covering with the ganache.
