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.

I made this for a family gathering. It was commented on as tasting 'expensive'. Probably helped by that fact that I just a good quality chocolate. Like some of the comments here, I added the vanilla to the cream. I took it out of the fridge before serving but ended up leaving it longer than the 30 mins suggested so it was probably served a bit softer than it should be.
Also, I too had trouble getting it out of the container so when I do it next I will put cling-film in first to make this easier in the future.

The only problem I had was getting the finished product out the tin in one piece, it crumbled but tasted better than it looked. Very rich and ideal for those with a sweet tooth.

loved the simple recipe
I agree vanilla did make choc grainy ( 70% cocoa solids) but soon whizzed out with the cream, actually used creme fraiche..5 star

Superb, a little sweet with all the icing sugar - will half the amount next time. I added a little brandy to the cream whilst whipping. Scrummy and so easy. Does anyone know where I can get a 12cmx36cm tin though?

I made this for a family gathering and it went down really well, although a little strong for the children. I might make it with all milk chocolate next time

Made it twice this weekend - first time was abit of a disaster as the vanilla made the chocolate harden, so the second time I added the vanilla and icing sugar to the cream and it came out perfect. Everyone loved it.

Very easy and very moreish, my daughters and family members loved it! Though I think I'd make a chocolate biscuit base next time - just a personal preference.

WOW, I cooked this for a special dinner party, it went down so well people even asked for a slice to take home. Even the non chocolate fans loved it. i made it with digestives (shopping mistake) it tasted great and very easy to make, highly recommended, will be making this yummy chocolate flan again very soon.

I have made this twice now, both unsuccessful ! the first time I had a problem mixing the chocolate into the cream and there were hard little bits of chocolate in the final tart. I made it again today and used the electric mixer to avoid the same problem, but after 5 hours in the fridge the tart had not set - I give up !

Sadly i was not successful with this recipe. I melted the chocolate the old fashioned way and added the vanilla essence to the whipping cream but for some reason, the filling just didn;t set despite being in the fridge for 5 hours. It was a big disappointment and I won;t be trying this again. I don;t think puddings are my forte.

I made this for my babies Christening and everyone absolutley loved it. It is v easy to make and is soooooooooooo delicious. It was dangerous to make at home because there are only two of us & baby and the temptation was too great.

Easy to make and really delicious. The chocolate did go all hard and grainy as mentioned by the other reviewers, however folded in the chocolate and it mixed in absolutely fine. Trust the recipe - it really does work!

Really tasty although I agree with Julie - 100g of butter is far too much for the base. Thanks for the tip - i will reduce by half next time :)
