What ingredients do you need for these No Bake Tarts
You only need four ingredients: Oreo cookies, butter heavy cream and dark chocolate. You can use another kind of chocolate cookies as well, if you prefer. Optionally you can garnish them with sea salt and decorate with fresh strawberries or other berries: these ingredients would bring extra luxury but you can skip them without compromising the taste of the tarts.
In case you want to make these tarts vegan, you can use coconut cream instead of dairy heavy cream and coconut oil instead of butter. In this case you might double all ingredients as the coconut cream normally comes in 14 oz/ 400 ml cans, which is double the quantity of the dairy cream in the recipe. Oreo Cookies are vegan and so are most quality dark chocolates. Still it is recommended to check the package for any occasional non vegan additives.
How to make No Bake Chocolate Tarts
They are very easy and will take you a maximum of 30 minutes before putting them in the fridge. First you need to make the crust by mixing melted butter with Oreo crumbs. Press the crust to the bottoms and the sides of mini tart tins.
The filling is a simple chocolate ganache: to make it heat the cream to the point of simmering and then pour it in a bowl where you have placed the broken chocolate. Wait 5-10 minutes and start whisking until smooth. Let the ganache cool a bit and then pour it on top of the crust. Refrigerate, decorate and serve – it is so easy!
