A delicious treat for the weekend – decorate simply or embellish lavishly. We’ve used grated chocolate with a dusting of cocoa powder. Why not enjoy this dessert with friends. It’s a simple and melt-in-the-mouth chocolate tart that can easily be made gluten-free and dairy-free using any gluten-free biscuits and dairy-free cream and chocolate.

Crust Ingredients:
  • 90 ml Azada Olive Oil and Orange + extra for greasing
  • 1 tablespoon golden syrup
  • 350 grams of chocolate biscuits (gluten-free equivalent)
Filling Ingredients:
  • 200 grams dark chocolate (I used Lindt Orange)
  • 100 grams milk chocolate
  • 200 ml whipping cream (dairy-free equivalent)
  • 50 grams of ground almonds
To Serve:
  • Dark cocoa for sifting
  • Extra dark chocolate, grated

Lightly grease a 24cm springform cake tin using Azada’s Olive Oil & Orange. Crust. Gently heat Azada’s Olive Oil and Orange and golden syrup together then cool. Meanwhile, pulse the biscuits in a food processor to resemble fine crumbs and add the olive oil mixture and pulse to combine. Tip the mixture into the tin and with the back of a spoon press evenly into the base and ½ of the way up the side. Chill for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Filling. Roughly break the chocolates and place them in a heatproof bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water until melted. Gently cool. In a separate bowl whisk the cream until it forms soft peaks then fold into the melted chocolate along with the ground almonds. Don’t over-mix! Pour over the tart base and chill for at least 1 hour. To Serve. Sift a thin layer of cocoa powder over the tart and sprinkle with grated chocolate. Cut into slices and serve.

Chef’s Tips

This no-bake dessert will happily keep in the fridge for 3-4 days and can come across as rich, so small slices are recommended.
