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.

Delicious, but I used a round tin and needed more filling.

Made this for a dinner party and it was so easy to make. When I whipped double cream for filling I added some amaretto and also decorated using amaretto cream. It went down a storm.

easy to make and got great compliments. Will make again but am going try making small individual ones.

lovely and scrummy! I added the vanilla exract to the cream too which is a better idea. I did individual ones which didn't set all that well but I think It was because I added the cream before the chocolate had cooled enough. I would definately make again.

Wonderful ! Realy easy to make and looks great too. I made a rasberry coullis rather than just use them as a decoration and everyone loved it.

It didn't quite come up to the mark for me....sorry. I had to use more biscuits to soak up the butter and to 'line' the bottom of the tin, and there was not enough chocolate mix to look like the photo on the front page (I had to use a round tin size as stated), and I'm afraid it looked more like a chocolate biscuit)

Very nice and very easy. Like the other reviewer, just used 50g of butter and 1tbl spoon of sugar. Was more than enough.

This is delicious but very naughty! I only put half the amount of syrup in the biscuit base and it was fine. To be honest i'll put less butter in next time too.

If you like chocolate you will LOVE this recipe, it is sooo delicious. I served it for my mum on mothers day and she loved it! I will warn you though, it is VERY rich, I love chocolate but even I found this a bit too heavy, I recommend small slices to start with!

I used half the icing sugar and it was just right. And I also followed the other comments to mix the vanilla into the cream. The chocolate did go a little lumpy when it was mixed with the cream, but no-one noticed. I couldn't find butter biscuits, so I subbed digestives instead. Lovely recipe, not too sweet and cloying.

I made it as the recipe and there wasn't a crumb left!

This is most definitely a "blow the diet" dessert - i have made it twice now -and it is crowd pleaser. I followed the hints from loveabargain and didnt find any problems.

My choco-holic partner loved this tart. I used ginger biscuits instead of all butter ones and they gave a great taste and a lovely crunchy base. Would definately make again.
