As a self-confessed Chocoholic, I am always looking for speedy ways to get my fix of chocolatey goodness. I don't believe in a chocolate-less desert and I always like to have something I can put together in times of desperation!

This super quick recipe can be used when you are in a pinch and have to rustle something impressive up with no time. Or its for when you want something indulgent for desert with minimal effort. Either way, this recipe is one that I use time and time again- and you will too!

The chocolate I use is from Lidl, and it works perfectly every time, but Im sure that any chocolate will work just as well. The base I bought in my local Asda, but again I'm sure you can find these in any supermarket. I hope you enjoy this recipe!

  1. Keep aside 50g of the 70% cocoa chocolate for decoration. Break the remaining bars into squares, and melt on the hob (bowl over a pot of hot water, NOT TOUCHING the hot water- on a low heat)
  2. In a separate pot, slowly heat the cream with the 25g caster sugar until warmed through. Do not allow to bubble or boil. When you start to see steam rising, but before any boil, you can remove from the heat. The lowest level on your hob would be an ideal setting for this, but be patient!
  3. When the chocolate has melted, take the bowl of chocolate out of the pot and dry the bottom- you don't want steam to mix into your ganache. Immediately pour the warmed cream into the bowl with the chocolate, and stir until melted and smooth.
  4. Once mixed thoroughly, pour the mixture into the base to cool. You can put it into the fridge (with very steady hands) after it has mostly cooled and it will set nicely!
  5. Once the chocolate filling has cooled, grate some of the remaining chocolate over the top of your tart for a professional finish.

      Yum, sounds delish. I have a local Lidl but no Asda as I live in Spain. Can´t get pre made pastry cases here so I will substitute a digestive crumb bottom or maybe crushed oriol biscuits instead ( like a cheesecake base)
