  • 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 was delicious and very easy to make. I would definitely heed the warnings about adding the vanilla essence to the cream rather than the chocolate mixture to prevent it going grainy. One thing I did notice was that the next day everyone who had eaten it had quite bad indigestion. We thought it might have been because of a generally rich dinner party, but we ate a couple of left over slices the next evening and noticed the same thing the following day. Shame as this really put me off making this again.

This cake was a real hit with my family. It was very easy to make but looked like I had spent ages on it. Next time I will make it in advance of time as it tasted better the next day after longer in the fridge

I made this the other day and it tastes fantastic.
However, do not put the vanilla essence or icing sugar in the chocolate. I did and it turned out a bit crunchy.
I want to try this recipe again as it's a crowd pleaser for sure.

Did this without the toppings in a round tin. Didn't have any vanilla extract but used ginger biscuits for extra flavour and it was demolished! Next time I do this, I might use some of the Baileys whipping cream I saw last time I was in Tesco...

The jury's out in my house. Whilst I like the idea of the recipe which was easy to make and made a nice fluffy mouse, it was far too intensely sweet and rich for my liking. My husband however agreed that it was sweet but liked it. My advice: this is only for the most diehard chocolate lovers and those seeking a coma inducing sugar rush.

So good. Chockie biscuit base for a double chockie sensation is even better!!!

Gorgeous, easy to make and a bonus you can make it ahead of the event. I did this as part of a pudding medley with shortbread cheesecake and the two were simply delicious together. Would definately recommend and I had no problems with the recipe as it was.

I replaced half the biscuits with amaretti and the vanilla with 3 tblsps amaretti liqueur which was yummy but next time I'll use all amaretti. Very much enjoyed by all!

Very, very nice! I made as six individual tartlets and they looked spectacular, very professional. However, I do agree with previous comments about the quantity of butter needed- I reduced the amount to 80g as was worried they would fall apart on removal from the tins but this was far too much still. The base was solid and shiny rather than the crumbly texture shown in the photo. Next time I will only use 50g as suggested by other reviewers.

I wasn't expecting this to be as easy as it was and I'm not a natural cook! Really nice but I think it's only for the hardcore chocolate fans- very rich. I found that the texture and taste was much better after a day in the fridge rather than the suggested couple of hours.

made this with digestive biscuits and it is stunning. should also be listed as easy as its very quick and simple to make!

This recipe is SO easy! I don't know why it says "moderately" because anybody could make this.

I bought a pack of 10 foil tins from Lakeland Limited & they are perfect for making 2 tarts out of this recipe. One for us and one for the occasion I'm making it for!

I've amended this recipe to use 100g digestive biscuits and 100g ginger nuts in the base. This works really well and gives it an extra zing.

I've also accidentally added lemon essence instead of vanilla and that was DELICIOUS. I also imagine orange essence would be yummy too! Mmmm mmmm mmmmmmmm. :)

Made this for dinner party last night, a good job i made 2 desserts as this one stuck solid to tray. I think too much butter in recipe to add to biscuits which are butter biscuits anyway. Bottom layer more solid chewy base than in picture of crumbly biscuit. Topping breaks easily when cutting and mine did not to set itself to bottom base well.
Lovey strong chocolate flavour though, perhaps make topping only then serve with a biscuit etc. I did serve it , but covered in cocoa powder to disguise it! Really enjoyed by choc lovers ! they also liked chewy base !!!!!!
