  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.

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.

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

Hi 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.

I made this with chilli chocolate and it was fantastic.

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...
