No-bake chocolate orange tart recipe

 Let me introduce you to one of the easiest ans tastiest recipes known to man.
Say hello to the chocolate orange tart. No-bake, fuss free and only uses 5 simple ingredients. Oh and did I mention it tastes like heaven?! This is my go to dessert when we have guests over for Christmas get-togethers and it's always very well received.

Easy chocolate orange tart recipe


300g digestive biscuits
150g butter
75g icing sugar
300ml double cream
1 whole chocolate orange (any variety, I used milk chocolate)
Optional decoration (I used edible gold glitter but you could use edible stars, cream, more chocolate orange)


  1. Crush the biscuits into fine pieces, this can be done in a food processor or by hand by putting the biscuits in a food bag and crushing them with a rolling pin. 
  2. Melt the butter and add it to the biscuit. Mix together.
  3. Press the biscuit and butter mix into a baking tin. Press down firmly and build a little up the sides to support the tart when it's out of the tin.
  4. Melt the chocolate orange and set to one side to cool.
  5. Whip together the icing sugar and cream to form soft peaks. This will give the tart a mousse like texture. If you prefer a thicker texture then don't whip the cream.
  6. Fold the slightly cooled chocolate into the cream.
  7. Spread the chocolate and cream mix on to the biscuit base and place in the fridge to chill for around 6 hours or overnight.
  8. Decorate with anything of your choice, I used gold glitter to give it a festive edge.

This is one of the easiest things I've ever made, my family love it and if I do say so myself it tastes pretty great! I've been making this tart every Christmas for a good few years now and it never disappoints.
