Chocolate Orange Tarte

When I was in Mallorca we had some tasty chocolate tarte. So when I came home, I had this real urge to make a chocolate tarte. Here is what I came up with.

Doesnt it look devine? Thats because it is! Here is the recipe:


30 ginger biscuits

80g Melted Butter

1 Jar Marmalade

200g Plain Chocolate

100g Milk Chocolate

200ml Double Cream

40g Butter


First we need to make the base. Take the biscuits and crush them up into crumbs. Mix with the melted butter and press into the base of a greased and lined cake tin. Place in the fridge to cool.

Once cool, spread marmalade onto the base generously, leaving just a small amount of space around the edge.

 To make the chocolate filling, break up the chocolate into a bowl. Place the double cream and butter into a pan and heat until it just starts to bubble. Take it of the heat and pour over the chocolate. Leave for a few minutes, then use a silicone spatula to mix it all together. Pour over the marmalade and biscuit, then leave to set in the fridge for around 4 hours. 

Dont forget to lick the bowl, which is of course the best part of making ganache!

This is best enjoyed with a lovely cup of coffee. Enjoy!
