Servings 12 mini tarts


For the crust:

  • 1 cup chocolate biscuits finely ground
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter

For the filling:

  • 250 ml heavy cream
  • 150 g dark chocolate chopped
  • 1 large egg
  • ¼ cup whole milk
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter


To make the crust:

  • Finely ground chocolate cookies/biscuits in a food processor. I have used bourbon biscuits.
  • Pour biscuit crumbs into a bowl. Add melted butter and stir well.
  • Pour the mixture into cupcake moulds lined with liners. Press down and flatten it out. Place it in the refrigerator for 20 minutes to firm up. Preheat oven to 170-degree Celsius.
  • Bake the crust for 8-10 minutes. Take it out of the oven and place it on a wire rack to cool down completely.

To make the filling:

  • Add chopped dark chocolate in a bowl.
  • Pour heavy cream in a saucepan and bring it to a simmer over medium-low heat. Don’t boil it.
  • Remove from heat and pour it over the chopped chocolate. Let it sit for 1 minute.
  • Whisk gently until smooth. Add butter and mix well until melted.
  • Add egg and milk into the mixture. Whisk well.
  • Reduce oven temperature to 150-degree Celsius. Pour 2 tbsp mixture over biscuit crusts and bake for 15 minutes.
  • Take it out of the oven and allow it to cool down completely before serving.


The tarts can be refrigerated for up to 1 day.
