Chocolate lovers, rejoice! The strawberry chocolate tart recipe that I’m sharing with you today is pure chocolate heaven.
This dessert is rich and indulgent. The velvety smooth ganache creates a sweet rich base that goes perfectly with the fresh strawberries and crunchy cookie crust. It truly is a dessert made to impress!
One of the best things about this dessert, other than its phenomenal taste, is how fast and easy it is to make. Maximum results with little effort? Now that’s my kind of desert!
Strawberry Chocolate Tart Recipe
- 1 package Oreo cookies
- 6 Tbsp. butter, melted
- 1 1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 4 oz. bittersweet chocolate (I used a 4 oz. bittersweet baking bar found in the baking aisle)
- 1 cup heavy cream
Step 1. Use a food processor to crush the Oreo cookies. Add the melted butter, then mix again until smooth. Pour the cookie blend into a tart pan (I used rectangular), then press down firmly with your fingers to create the cookie crust. Place in the refrigerator.
Step 2. Place the chocolate chips and bittersweet chocolate (broken in pieces) in a bowl. Set aside.
Step 3. Pour the heavy cream into a small pan and heat on medium-low heat until very warm, but not boiling. Pour cream over chocolate and let sit for a minute or two. Stir until smooth.
If the chocolate doesn’t get completely smooth, create a double boiler and stir the chocolate until smooth. Don’t place the chocolate over direct heat because it will burn.
Step 4. Pour the chocolate ganache over the cookie crust and smooth out the top.
Gently press fresh strawberries on top, then let set in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours.
If serving the strawberry chocolate tart the same day, then it’s fine to add the strawberries to the top as described above.
If serving the strawberry chocolate tart the next day, then hold off on adding the fresh strawberries until shortly before serving.
The strawberries on top came from my local farmer’s market and were so fresh and delicious!
San Diego has some wonderful farmers markets that I love to visit. I’m so inspired by all the colorful locally grown fruits and vegetables, fresh eggs, nuts, and meat.
My grandparents used to have a small kumquat tree. I remember picking and eating the small fruit off the tree and loving the sweet taste of the rind combined with the sour flavor of the fruit.
On my recent farmers market trip I was thrilled to find California grown kumquat. Of course I bought some and relived my childhood excitement while eating this delicious fruit all over again!
I loved all of the colorful root vegetables that are also grown locally here in California. I bought some beautiful and magnificently shaped carrots in orange, white, and a deep purple color that I didn’t even know were an option for carrots!
Did you know that California produces nearly half of the fruits, nuts, and vegetables grown in the entire U.S.? California farming is one of the largest employers in our state and is vital to our state economy.
California is also the nation’s top milk and nut producer, and produces 100% of our country’s supply of almonds. I love all of the fresh options that come from my state!
