We all know dark chocolate is the healthiest option plus its so much more chocolaty, that melting in your mouth sensation followed by a sip of your coffee is always a winning combinations. Here’s how to make an easy chocolate tart, no baking, not cooking…only 10 minutes and you’ll have yourself a pool of chocolate resting in a heavenly ginger crust, it is almost impossible to keep yourself from cutting a cheeky slice before your guests arrive 😉

What you need:
200g good quality ginger biscuits
100g butter
1 tbsp golden syrup
200g good quality dark chocolate (green and blacks!)
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp icing sugar
200ml whipping cream

What you do:
1) Crush up the ginger biscuits using a refrigerator bag and a rolling pin, do not over crush. Melt the butter and the syrup in the microwave for 1 minute.
2) In a bowl mix together the butter and biscuits. Press onto the base and up the sides of a 8″ tart tin.
3) Break up the dark chocolate and put in a large bowl. Melt in the microwave for 2-3 min, stirring halfway through. One melted stir in the vanilla extract, then sift in the icing sugar.
4) Whip the cream until it just holds its shape, then fold into the melted chocolate. Pour into the prepared tin, shake until the top is smooth.
5) Refrigerate for at least 2hours
6) enjoy with freshly ground coffee!

One of the most perfect deserts, if dark chocolate is too much for you then use half milk chocolate and half dark :), if serving then dusting with icing sugar and raspberries!

Keep it delicious!
