PREPARATION

  1. Crush the biscuits by putting them in a large, strong, plastic food bag and bashing with a rolling pin. Melt the butter with the syrup in the microwave, then stir in the biscuits. Press onto the base and up the sides of a 12 x 36cm rectangular tin (or 23-25cm round flan tin) and pop into the fridge while you make the filling.
  2. Break up the chocolate and put in a large bowl. Melt in a bowel over a pan of water on Medium, stirring halfway through. Stir in the Creme Liqueur, vanilla extract, then sift in the icing sugar. Whip the cream until it just holds its shape, then fold into the melted but slightly cooled chocolate. Pour into the prepared tin and smooth the top. Chill for at least 2 hrs but you can keep this in this for up to 2 days.
  3. Just before serving, remove the tart from the tin and slide it onto a flat plate (loosen edges first with the tip of a small pointed knife). You will find it easier to remove the tart if you leave it at room temperature for 30 mins.

 

Top Tip: Warm your knife in hot water before slicing for a nice smooth finish. If using other flavors such as orange zest or another flavored liqueur’s then add these at the time we added the Irish Creme Liqueur.
