  • 200g pack all-butter biscuit
  • 100g butter



    Butter is made when lactic-acid producing bacteria are added to cream and churned to make an…

  • 1 tbsp golden syrup or honey
  • 100g bar dark chocolate
  • 100g bar milk chocolate
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp icing sugar, plus extra for dusting
  • 200ml whipping cream
  • 3 tbsp crème fraîche, to decorate
  • 200g raspberry, to serve



    A member of the rose family, raspberries have a wonderfully intense, sweet taste, and many…


  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.

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!

Have made this several times then lost the recipe, so pleased to find it again. My son loves this especially when some Baileys is added, gives a lovely flavour. So easy and quick.

This is too delicious for just one piece, but it's also so rich you can only eat one piece! Marvellous, it has become my favourite pudding for special occasions.

I made this for older teenagers that were staying with me prior to a sports (fencing) event the next day. Took no time to make and got eaten with great enthusiasm.
One very polite 18 yr old man said "Tastes absolutely yummy and the more calories the better, please can I have another slice?
Who here is man enough to have 2 slices?"!
He even asked for the recipe.

Will definitely be making this again regularly.

This is fantastic! I made this at the weekend for friends visiting and it went down a storm. I made it as per the recipe as I didnt read the comments beforehand, and it turned out perfectly. I used Green & Black chocolate. Just served small servings as I thought it may be too rich, however everyone was soon calling for more!! Will definitley make again.

Please can someone help me I tried this recipe twice, very yummy recipe but I found that my chocolate went very hard and grainy. This 1st time i melted it in the microwave and it happened and then I did it over boiling water same thing. What am i doing wronge? I am also having a problem trying to get the base not to stick to the dish as i need a hacksaw to get it out :).

Found this pudding fairly easy to make- used half dark & milk chocolate. Cooled everything down before adding the cream & no problems at all.I did find the base quite wet even though I used 50 gm butter as suggested might leave out the honey next time. Might also use some cling film film to line the tin. Tasted good

We loved it eating and making it both my boys (21 months & 3 years!) loved helping to break up the biscuits (we used supermarket own digestives) and the chocolate (again supermarket own! )V rich though! Quick and simple to make esp with young children!

I used gingernut biscuits instead of all-butter biscuits which worked really well.

Does anyone know if you put a layer of caramel on the biscuit, under the chocolate, would that work? A bit like a big twix cake??

I found this way too sweet the first time I made it. I made it a second time and didn't add the sugar which was better. It's good as a no hassle dessert but it won't be something I'll be making again and again.
