Lazy man’s chocolate tart with raspberries

Why is it so therapeutic to coarsely chop a big slab of dark chocolate? Why is it so surreal to witness heated chocolate turn into beautiful molten gooey goodness? Why is it so deeply satisfying to see cream coming together with molten chocolate so beautifully turning it into a luscious shiny, glossy ganache?

I’d like to call it the chocolate therapy because it leaves you feeling divine and blissful. Something all of us need from time to time.

The idea was to make a decadent dessert that comes together really quick and requires almost no effort. Because I am generally lazy like that. But I didn’t want to compromise on the chocolaty richness that we generally associate with a good chocolate tart.

So here it is, my lazy spin on chocolate tart. It can’t get any easier than this! (And when I am not lazy, I actually make my own shortcrust pastry)
3 packets of digestive biscuits
100 gms of butter
125 gms of dark chocolate (I used Morde)
1 tetrapack of cream (200ml, I used Amul cream)
Chocolate shavings (optional)
Handful of Raspberries (frozen or fresh)
For the biscuit base:
Whizz the biscuits in a food processor until it is powdered but not too fine. Melt butter in the microwave and mix with the powdered biscuit mixture. Press this mixture carefully in the bottom of a tart tin smoothing out the edges. Chill the tin for about 20 minutes before adding the chocolate mixture.
For the chocolate mixture:
Melt the chopped dark chocolate in microwave. Once melted, slowly incorporate the cream and whisk continuously. Add all the cream and pour this mixture over the chilled biscuit base. Smooth out the chocolate mixture with a flat knife and generously sprinkle with chocolate shavings.

Chill in the deep freezer for a minimum of 2 hours before serving with fresh raspberries and a dusting of cocoa powder/icing sugar.
