No-Bake Chocolate Tart with Ganache

Prep Time 20 mins
Cook Time 12 mins
Servings 8


For tart shell

  • 1 ¼ cups chocolate cookie crumbs
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 4 tbsp melted butter

For Ganache Filling

  • 14 oz dark chocolate chocolate chips or chopped bars
  • 1 cup whipping cream (35% milkfat)
  • 4 tbsp softened butter


  • Preheat oven to 350ºF. Combine cookie crumbs, sugar and butter in a 9” tart pan. Stir until crumbs are evenly moistened then press the mixture firmly into the bottom and up the sides of the pan using a flat-bottomed cup to push it down.
  • Bake for 12 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack.
  • Place chocolate in a large heat-safe bowl.
  • Place cream in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high power for 1 ½ - 2 minutes until steaming hot and bubbles appear around the edges of the bowl.
  • Immediately pour the hot cream onto the chocolate and cover the bowl with a baking sheet or large plate and let stand 5 minutes to melt the chocolate.
  • Lift the cover, add the butter, and whisk to finish melting. If not completely melted, microwave on 50% power for 30-second intervals, stirring frequently, until smooth.
  • Pour into cooled shell and chill for 4 hours before serving.
