Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups finely crushed chocolate wafer cookies (about 16 cookies)
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 2 bars (8 oz.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Dark Chocolate Baking Bar, broken into small pieces
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream, divided
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar

Directions:

PREHEAT oven to 325º F.

COMBINE crushed cookies and butter in medium bowl. Press onto bottom and up side of ungreased 9-inch tart pan with removable bottom. Bake for 15 minutes. Cool completely in pan on wire rack.

MICROWAVE chocolate and 1 cup cream in medium, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power for 1 minute; STIR. If pieces retain some of their original shape, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until smooth. Cool to room temperature.

BEAT remaining 1 cup cream and powdered sugar in chilled medium mixer bowl until stiff peaks form. Carefully fold whipped cream into chocolate mixture until blended. Spoon into prepared crust; smooth top.

    mmm good!

    tina vacalopoulos from MELBOURNE, FL

    easy to make. didn't have a tart pan so used a 9 inch pie plate. it is very rich so you have to eat small portions--this makes it last longer! will make again--a keeper.

    Intense Chocolate Flavor

    K Langberg from

    This recipe was incredibly easy. However, the chocolate flavor is extremely intense (even for a choco-holic like me). I think I might make this again using regular semi-sweet morsels and it would be great. Either way, it definitely needs whipped cream to balance that rich chocolate experience.

    Awesomely Easy Chocolate Moose Tart

    liz anderson from COLORADO SPRINGS, CO

    Could this be any easier? A quick oven bake for the crust, mix the filling and pop it in the 'fridge until firm. Cleaning up after would take longer than making this dessert.

    good name

    L Gigowski from CAMPBELLSPORT, WI

    This was very rich and VERY delicious. Not difficult to make, I used a store bought cookie crust and it worked just fine. We fought over the last piece.
