Chocolate Raspberry Dessert Recipe

Updated on March 31, 2013

Raspberry Chocolate Desserts are a nice and happy end to a good meal. Though the combinations can be endless - raspberry truffles, a raspberry chocolate cake, raspberry chocolate ice cream or gelatto - nothing quite takes the cake (sorry) like the Chocolate Raspberry Tart. Though it might seem like a hard desert, it is actually quite fast and easy (unlike say, a raspberry truffle) and is a good starter recipe, or base recipe for you to have for a rainy day.

Cook Time

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 50 min
Ready in: 1 hour
Yields: A Large Chocolate Raspberry Tart


  • 32 chocolate wafer cookies
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • Some coarse salt
  • 6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • 12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 1/4 cups heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh raspberries


  1. Preheat oven to 350. To make the crust: Combine cookies, sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a food processor until very fine crumbs form. Add butter and pulse until mixture comes together nicely. Press the crumbs you made firmly into a 9-inch tart pan with a removable bottom. Using a flat bottom cup or item speeds this up a lot. Place on a baking sheet and bake until crust is dry and set: 20 minutes. Let cool.
  2. To make the ganache: Combine chocolate and pinch of salt in a large bowl. Bring the cream to a bare simmer over medium-high in a small sauce pan. Immediately pour this cream over chocolate to melt it and let stand 1 minute. Stir gently until chocolate melts and mixture is completely smooth. Pour chocolate into cooled tart shell and refrigerate until set: 30 minutes.
  3. Remove the side of the pan from the bottom and serve! Delicious with cream and raspberries on top. Enjoy.


This Chocolate Raspberry Tart is highly modifiable. Don't like that much chocolate? You can use a vanilla cookie instead! Don't like raspberries all the time? Substitute in any fruit that you like with chocolate - I love strawberries instead! What you eat is up to you, so create your own tart and see what you can do!


Good Eats Art of Darkness III (Chocolate)

Because there is so much to learn about chocolate, it is much easier to watch a short video explaining different kinds of chocolate and different processes that you need to use for the results you want. Alton Brown's Good Eats Art of Darkness III mainly focuses on ganache and truffles. These little balls of deliciousness can run you 3-5 dollars each at some fine chocolate establishments, so it is good to understand the basics of it if you want to do it yourself. For instance, it would not be too hard to follow the video and create a raspberry ganache truffle.

I hope you are inspired to go out and try to make your own delicious chocolate desserts, and were able to learn something helpful!
