I have an easy no-bake dessert for you for Valentine’s Day: A Chocolate Strawberry Ganache Tart with a Chocolate Cookie Crust!

dsc_0933-001

If you’re not familiar with ganache, it’s a rich, decadent mixture of melted chocolate and cream. The ratio of chocolate to cream varies in ganache, depending on how you use it~ for truffles, fillings, glazes, or whipped as frosting. Because it’s just two ingredients, you want to use good quality chocolate and full fat, heavy cream, no substituting with light cream or half and half.The higher the fat content of the cream, the richer and more stable the finished ganache will be.

This no-bake chocolate ganache tart requires only 4 ingredients~ 5, if you add berries on top, and is easy to make! It’s impressive enough to serve company, can be made ahead and a splurge-worthy dessert! You only need a small sliver (not the size of the slice as pictured :) to satisfy your inner chocoholic!

No-Bake Strawberry Chocolate Ganache Tart with Chocolate Cookie Crust

Makes an 11″ tart

dsc_0903-001

Chocolate Cookie Crust:

I package Oreos (or similar chocolate sandwich cookies, about 36)

1 /2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted

To make crust: Add Oreos to bowl of a food processor and pulse until fine crumbs. Transfer crumbs to a medium bowl, add melted butter and mix until well combined. Press the mixture onto the bottom and up the sides of an 11-inch tart pan. Tip: Use the sides and bottom of a measuring cup to help press crumbs evenly into sides and bottom of tart pan. Place crust in the refrigerator to chill and firm for 1 hour before adding filling.

Ganache Filling:

(3) 4 oz bars Premium Chocolate Baking Bars, Semi-Sweet or Bittersweet, (I used Ghirardelli and a combination of both semi-sweet and bittersweet)

1 1/2 Cups Heavy Cream

dsc_0963-001

To Make Ganache filling:

Coarsely chop chocolate bars and place in a heat proof bowl. In a small saucepan, bring cream just to a boil over medium-high heat. Pour heavy cream over chocolate and let stand for 2-3 minutes, until chocolate has softened. Slowly whisk the mixture until smooth and chocolate is melted. Pour filling into prepared cookie crust. Place in fridge until set, about 4  – 6 hours or overnight.

When ganache is set, you can top your chocolate tart with strawberries, raspberries, chocolate shavings, or flaky sea salt. I added some sliced strawberries and drizzled with some additional melted chocolate.

Equipment

  • food processor
  • 11 inch tart pan with removeable bottom

Ingredients

Chocolate Cookie Crust:

  • I package Oreos or similar chocolate sandwich cookies, about 36
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted

Ganache Filling:

  • (3) 4 oz. Ghirardelli Premium Baking Bars, Semi-Sweet and/or Bittersweet, (use the combination to suit to your taste)
  • 1 1/2 Cups Heavy Cream

Ganache Topping

  • 1 pint sliced strawberries
  • additional melted chocolate for drizzle if desired

Instructions

To Make Crust: Add Oreos (including the cream filling) to bowl of a food processor and pulse until fine crumbs.

  • Transfer crumbs to a medium bowl, add melted butter and mix until well combined.
  • Press the mixture onto the bottom and up the sides of an 11 -inch tart pan.
  • Tip: Use the sides and bottom of a measuring cup to press crumbs evenly into sides and along bottom of tart pan.
  • Place crust in the refrigerator to firm for 1 hour before adding filling.

To Make Ganache filling:

  • Coarsely chop chocolate bars and place in a heat proof bowl. In a small saucepan, bring cream just to a boil over medium-high heat.
  • Pour heavy cream over chocolate and let stand for 2-3 minutes, until chocolate has softened.
  • Slowly whisk the mixture until smooth and chocolate is melted and shiny.
  • Pour filling into prepared cookie crust. Place in fridge until set, about 4 - 6 hours or overnight.
  • When ganache is set, top chocolate tart with strawberries, raspberries, chocolate shavings, salted caramel or flaky sea salt if desired.

Notes

  • Add sliced strawberries just prior to serving as cut strawberries will weep onto surface of ganache filling.
  • Because ganache is just two ingredients, you want to use good quality chocolate and full fat heavy cream. The higher the fat content of the cream, the richer and more stable the finished ganache will be. This is a rich and decadent chocolate tart, but you only need a small sliver to satisfy your inner chocoholic.
  • Drizzle additional melted chocolate over strawberries and surface of tart if desired.

    Such a beautiful tart! Chocolate is always a good idea! Thanks for joining Home Sweet Home!

  25. February 6, 2017 at 9:37 am

    This looks awesome – especially because it’s no bake. I assume the whole cookie is used – not just the top and bottom with the filling discarded? I wondered because the crust looks so nice and dark – without a trace of the creamy white cookie insides.

  26. April 2, 2017 at 2:58 am

    This looks so professional… and the Oreo crust 👌🏼

    Will this be good if i bake it 2 nights ahead of the time i want to serve it? Should i cover it in the fridge?

    • November 22, 2017 at 6:21 am

      Hi, Yes you can make it ahead and cover. Wait and add the strawberries and additional chocolate drizzle prior to serving. Enjoy!

  29. May 30, 2018 at 12:59 pm

    One of the best desserts I’ve had in a long time, thanks Mary!

    • December 5, 2018 at 5:58 pm

      Yes, 1 package Oreos (or similar chocolate sandwich cookies, about 36).

    Question: I wasn’t able to find the semi-sweet Ghirardelli bars, but I did find 12 ounces of baking chips. Will these work ok?

    • March 16, 2019 at 3:46 pm

      Hi Sue, Chocolate chip morsels have added stabilizers to help them hold their shape when baked into cookies. You can use any semi-sweet or bittersweet bar, like Lindt if you can’t find Ghirardelli. You might find them with the chocolate candy in the grocery store if you can’t find them on the baking aisle. My Target as well as Walmart sells Ghirardelli.

      • July 31, 2020 at 3:42 pm

        Can I put strawberries on bottom before chocolate?
