Recipe: Decadent Raspberry and Chocolate Tart

Salam alaikum girls!

Sharing with you my latest favourite dessert. I swear, if you try this, you will want to have it again and again and again. Every single time I make this, I'll end up eating half or even more of it T.T

Its perfection, guys =D


11/2 cups of chocolate biscuit crumbs
1 tablespoon of sugar
1/2 cup of melted butter
1 1/4 cup of semisweet/milk chocolate chips
1 cup of heavy cream
1/4 teaspoon of salt
2 cups of raspberries

Preheat your oven to 175 degrees.

Blend the raspberries and pass it through a sieve. This is important to get rid of the raspberry seeds. 
Raspberries are super expensive so I would understand if you'd like to sub it with strawberries. However, if you're using strawberries, use only 1 cup. Strawberries tend to be juicier and so, the mixture will be runnier if you used 2 (:

In a bowl, mix the crushed chocolate biscuit crumbs, sugar & melted butter.
I used Marie's Chocolate Biscuits, you can use any biscuit you like (:

You know its mixed well when the texture is of wet sand.

Press the mixture into a springform/tart tin and make sure that you press it evenly. You can use the bottom of a glass. Refrigerate it for about 20 minutes to let it set.

Then, bake it for about 10 minutes. Let it cool.

Place the chocolate chips in a bowl. I used a mixture of semisweet and milk chocolate chips.

Place heavy cream in a saucepan and let it simmer. Pour the heavy cream over the chocolate chips and let it sit for a few minutes. 

I bought a litre of heavy cream from Phoon Huat cos its more worth it. If I'm not wrong its just about 7 bucks. The only problem is that its a large amount so after awhile, I can't think of anything else to make and the leftover goes to waste. But you can get yours in a small bottle from NTUC/Cold Storage. Expensive, but you don't waste anything heh.

Stir until the chocolate chips incorporate with the heavy cream. 

Stir in the raspberry puree and salt.

Pour it on the baked mixture. You can put in whole raspberries if you want.
Chill it in the fridge for about 2 hours, until the mixture firms up. 

Enjoy! (:
