When you need a decadent yet easy dessert this Easy Chocolate Ganache Tart will become your ultimate go-to recipe. Made with dark chocolate, Stork Bake and topped with fresh berries.
Pretty much all I need in life is chocolate! I'm a happy girl with any form of chocolate. So when Stork asked me to whip up a few recipes, I knew that chocolate had to be involved.
I generally like to keep my desserts fairly simple, yet decadent. I think often people are so afraid of making dessert because it always appears to be this overwhelming and overcomplicated task. It really shouldn't be, because let's be real we want to get to the eating part and spend less time in the kitchen. So for this Easy Chocolate Ganache Tart I made no exception. I kept it simple but I promise it will still wow anyone that digs into a slice (or three).
Okay so let's start with the crust. You've got two options here. Option one is to go for a more traditional tart crust (as in the recipe) which will obvs be heavenly, option two is the lazy (yet yummy) version. This involves crushing your favourite biscuit, I like the texture of digestive biscuits, melting a little Stork Bake and mixing that together. How is that guys? Then comes the good stuff. CHOCOLATE!! Jip, we're gonna melt a whole lotta chocolate, pour hot cream over it, add stork bake, maybe a little vanilla and BAM! Chocolate ganache heaven! Pour that over your chilled crust, top it with all of the berries and let it chill in the fridge for a few hours (if you can hold out that long).
