No-Bake Chocolate Cherry Tart: Valentine's Day

Photo: Taza Chocolate
This No-Bake Double Chocolate Cherry Tart is an all-time showstopper! It's easy and delicious. Make it for Valentine's Day or any time! Recipe is from Taza, one of my go-to chocolates (Taza 70% Mexicano is always in my desk). My local market has fresh cherries all year round, but you can substitute fresh raspberries or strawberries.

Makes 1 – 11 inch tart 

30 Oreos or other sandwich cookies
3 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
1 1/2 pints heavy cream
Taza 60% Dominican Stone Ground Chocolate bars, chopped (plus additional to melt for drizzling if desired)
1 pound cherries, pitted


Process cookies in food processor until fine crumb.
Place in bowl and drizzle melted butter over them, and stir to combine.
Press into 11 inch tart pan and put in refrigerator to cool.

Tart Filling:
Combine heavy cream and chocolate in small saucepan over medium-low heat and stir occasionally until fully incorporated. Allow to cool slightly then pour into crust.
Place pitted cherries on top of tart and let sit for 2 hours, or overnight.
Drizzle with additional melted chocolate if desired (I don't think it needs this).

How easy is that?

Happy Valentine's Day!!!
