No bake —- Chocolate tart with berries and passion fruit
March 22, 2016
Last weekend we had a family get together with our lovely friends for dinner. I wanted to make a dessert that keeps adults and kids happy. The question is …….what is most preferred dessert !!!! that is not too overly sweet and can be easily whipped up with minimal ingredients and above all that can be readily sourced from one’s pantry.Tons of recipes do flash by mind and majority take a back seat because it is often time-consuming and my weekend morning’s are frantically crazy with trips to supermarket and kids activities.I generally have to keep that in mind before jumping into the kitchen even though some of the recipes do kick my adrenalin rush.
While waiting for the kids activities to finish, I had a quick flick through the Nestle baking recipes booklet. It is an amazing book and multitude of recipes left me undecided to choose between lemon tart and chocolate pie. I wanted to make something chocolatey and easy. I made up my mind with the chocolate tart and just swapped the base of the lemon tart. The original recipe involved baking the tart but I used crushed chocolate chip cookies and butter to make the base. I mixed and matched the recipes in my mind to suit my time and taste. I used blueberries, raspberries, and passion fruit as a filling. The toppings were dark chocolate melt with butter and thickened cream. Interestingly the recipe required only refrigeration, no meddling with oven. The final outcome was very welcoming !!!
The dessert turned out to be hit and appreciated by the kids and adults. My kids requested it to make it again because they couldn’t t feast on mega portion sizes as they would normally do
