Method

  1. Crush the biscuits by putting them in a large, strong, plastic food bag and bashing with a rolling pin. Melt the butter with the syrup or honey in the microwave, then stir in the biscuits. Press onto the base and up the sides of a 12 x 36cm rectangular tin (or 23-25cm round flan tin) and chill while you make the filling.
  2. Break up the two chocolate bars and put in a large bowl. Melt in the microwave for 2-3 mins on Medium, stirring halfway through. Stir in the vanilla extract, then sift in the icing sugar. Whip the cream until it just holds its shape, then fold into the melted chocolate. Pour into the prepared tin and smooth the top. Chill for at least 2 hrs or for up to 2 days.
  3. Just before serving, remove the tart from the tin and slide it onto a flat plate (loosen edges first with the tip of a small pointed knife). You will find it easier to remove the tart if you leave it at room temperature for 30 mins. Put a few tsps of crème fraîche along the centre of the tart (or around the edges if the tart is circular) and top each with a raspberry, then dust lightly with icing sugar. Cut into thin slices and serve with extra raspberries on the side.

Fantastic, really easy and quick to make, but tastes like you have spent hours on it! Very chocolaty, can't wait to make it again!

Am I missing something? when I added the cream to the chocolate it went solid! No folding was required but full blown whisking! I did manage to rescue it and it was lump free and very delicious!

This chocolate tart is absolutely delicious and so so easy and quick to make. I used digestives instead of all butter biscuits for the base and, having read other comments, added the vanilla extract to the cream rather than the chocolate just in case the chocolate went grainy. I served it with whipped cream and raspberries and it went down a treat with family - they thought I had been slaving for hours making it!! Great one for making the day before too.

There was not enough of the biscuit mixture to go up the sides of my loose bottom 23cm round flan tin, in fact it only just covered the bottom. Next time I would make half as much base again, particularly as it was extremely good. Overall I would still rate this a 5 star recipe as every other aspect was excellent!

Lovely, will be making again.

Used half the amount of butter in the biscuit base (50g)

Made 1 1/2 times the amount of filling.

Beat a little Baileys into the cream

I loved this receipe altho I did do what some others had suggested and changed the base. I used digestives and gingernuts with half of each and it really lifted the flavour of the base. I think the syrup really gives it a nice slightly chewier texture than a normal cheesecake type base. Also - mistakenly added the vanilla extract to the melted chocolate which promptly solidified so a bit of beating to get it back to proper texture! I also put some orange zest in the chocolate mix as we're big fans of citrus. The fact you can make this the night before is a huge bonus when you're having folks for dinner!

Very simple to make and was delicious. Followed the advice of adding less butter.

This is really delicious! I too mixed the vanilla with the cream and then folded the chocolate in and had no problems. I used the stated amount of butter, but as others have said it was far too much and when I squidged the base into the tin, I had a pool of melted butter in the middle; so I had to pour it off. Will only use 50g next time! It set really well in 2 hours, but just to make sure I put it in the cold drawer of the fridge. Everyone really enjoyed it, both adults and kids. The tartness of the creme fraiche and raspberries worked well against the richness of the tart.

Made the tart today and after 4 hours it still has a very mousse like consistency, and is veeery sweet!! Perhaps I will try it again without the icing sugar. Used hob nob style biscuits for the base which turned out lovely, but the topping I think I need more practice on.

This was gorgeous but next time I wont stir in the chocolate so much & will leave a more marble effect as this will make the tart thicker as it will have more air

This is seriously good and so easy to make!!!! Used digestive biscuits for base and omitted the golden syrup/honey. Also baked the base for approx. 8 mins in hot oven, cooled in fridge before adding the filling!! Heeded previous comments and added the vanilla to the cream. Left out the icing sugar as well!!! Made this the night before dinner party and it set beautifully. Was devoured by my guests. Will def make again...and again.....and again!!!! Another winner from GF Team!!!

Cannot rate this any higher! Made for a dinner party and was very impressive! Normally I'm terrible at desserts. Used digestives for the base and used a chocolate orange in Place of the milk chocolate. I'll make this again and again.

i love this recipe. I make this whenever i want to make a good impression. I add the juice of an orange to mix right at the end which adds a beautiful depth to the flavour - who can resist chocolate and orange!
