1

Place the chocolate biscuits into a food processor and blitz to a fine crumb.

Add the Pecan & Maple Dessert Dukkah and blitz again for about 5 seconds to mix through.

Melt the butter and add to the food processor while it is blitzing.

2

Press the biscuit crumb mix into a 23cm loose base tart pan. There's no need to grease the pan.

Refrigerate for 1-2 hours to set - the longer the better.

If you’re in a hurry, freeze it for 30-45 minutes.

Break the chocolate into small pieces and add to a heat proof bowl. The smaller the pieces the easier it will be for the warm cream to melt and make the ganache.

4

Heat the cream over a low-medium heat to warm through, stirring continuously. The cream needs to be warm enough to melt the chocolate, but don’t let it boil.

Serve with whipped cream and berries on the side.

If you place fresh fruit on top of the tart, the moisture in the fruit can affect the tart’s appearance – but it will still taste delicious!

Enjoy!
