Chocolate, raspberry decadence is the best way I can describe this tart! It’s a cookie crust filled with a lush, dense chocolate filling, topped with raspberries and drizzled with a raspberry glaze. Are you drooling yet?
As much as I absolutely crave this dessert I don’t make it often – a fact which my hips and thighs appreciate! However I’ve been on a chocolate kick lately and since we were expecting company over the weekend I simply had to make this tart! It’s definitely a dessert to impress! Unfortunately, our plans unexpectedly fell through so the tart is mine, ALL MINE! So is that really unfortunate then? Hmmmm…..
When I make this for a dinner party or celebration of some sort I will top the entire tart with raspberries and drizzle the glaze over it all. Since however this is now being eaten only one slice at a time, to better keep in the fridge, I’ve opted to add the berries and glaze to each serving. Of course that also means more berries and glaze per serving so perhaps there is a method to my madness? 😉
Rich, lush chocolate raspberry decadence. You gotta give it a try!
Chocolate Raspberry Tart
1 1/2 c Oreo cookies
6 tbsp butter, melted
Filling & topping:
12 oz dark chocolate (semi-sweet or bittersweet)
1 1/4 c heavy whipping cream
2 cups fresh raspberries
6 tbsp seedless raspberry jam (divided)
1 tbsp water
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In blender or food processor pulse Oreo cookies till crumbs. In bowl mix cookie crumbs and melted butter. Turn out into tart pan and press along bottom and up sides.
Bake 10 minutes. Cool.
In sauce pan over medium heat combine chocolate and whipping cream. Whisk till melted and mixed smooth. Stir in 3 tbsp jam. Once mixed pour into cooled tart shell and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
Once tart is set, arrange raspberries over top.
In microwave, melt remaining 3 tbsp jam with 1 tbsp water. Drizzle over top of tart and serve.
The tart pan I used has removable sides. Although it is not necessary to spray the tart pan before adding the crust mixture I always do, spray it lightly, to help ensure no “stickage”.
