I love easy-to-make and simple recipes, which in return, result in something seriously delicious!
Like this tart, for example. It doesn’t take long at all, because it’s a no-bake-recipe and it’s absolutely delicious…
Therefore, here are the few ingredients, so that you can finish it quickly and taste for yourself!
200gr. of Butter biscuits (Rich Tea biscuits/Graham crackers/Digestives, etc)
100gr. of melted butter
400ml of whipping cream
400gr. of dark couverture chocolate, cut up coarsely
1 Egg yolk
4 tbsp. of Rum (optional)
First, you crumble the biscuits or crackers into “flour”. I used a bowl and a pestle, but you can use anything you might find useful.
Add the melted butter to your “biscuit flour” and mix them together until you get the consistency of wet sand. If the amount of butter isn’t enough, just add a little more!
Cover the base of your spring-form pan with baking parchment, so your tart won’t stick to it. Spread your dough onto it and press on it properly to get a nice and smooth base for your tarte. Place the pan in the fridge, until you finish preparing the chocolate cream.
Bring the whipping cream to a simmer in a small pot. Take it off the stove and stir in your previously cut up couverture chocolate. Keep stirring until the chocolate has melted completely (you can put it on the stove for a bit if it cools down too fast).
If you decide to add some rum to your cream, mix it now together with the egg yolk and whisk it to combine. Add the mixture to your chocolate cream while stirring thoroughly. Be sure to let your cream cool down a little before adding this mixture, so that your yolk doesn’t set.
To give it all a nice gloss, add a bit of butter to the cream and stir, until combined.
Now the only thing that is left to do, is to pour the chocolate cream onto the biscuit base you made earlier and let the fridge do it’s work : )
You can also use this cream-recipe as a dessert or drink it as hot chocolate! Either way, you will love it!
If you’re in the mood for something more special, you can add some spices to the game! For example, chili, cardamom or cinnamon – just let your imagination and your taste run wild and enjoy the result!
