Ingredients

  • CRUST:
  • 2 cup Oreo Cookie Crumbs
  • 7 tablespoon butter
  • FILLING:
  • 1 1/2 lb high-quality bittersweet chocolate
  • 2 cup heavy cream
  • 12 tablespoon unsalted butter at room temperature and cut into 12 pieces
  • GARNISH:
  • freshly whipped cream
  • raspberries
  • blueberries
  • powdered sugar for dusting

Instructions

  • MAKE THE CRUST: Move oven rack to the middle position and preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a medium bowl combine the Oreo crumbs and butter and mix until the butter is distributed evenly throughout the crumbs (you may need to get your hands dirty for this step).
  • Press the crumbs into an un-greased, 10-inch tart pan. Make sure the mixture is pressed evenly along the bottom and sides of the pan.
  • Place the tart pan on a cookie sheet and bake until it has slightly puffed about 10-12 minutes.
  • Place the tart pan on a wire rack to cool while you prepare the truffle filling (make sure the tart crust cools at least 10 minutes).
  • MAKE THE FILLING: Place the chopped chocolate in a medium bowl and set aside.
  • In a small saucepan over medium-high heat bring the cream to a simmer. Once simmering, pour the cream over the chopped chocolate and let it sit for 2 minutes.
  • Slowly whisk the cream and chocolate together until smooth. Add the butter and again slowly stir until melted and combined into the chocolate.
  • Pour the chocolate mixture into the tart shell, and use an offset spatula to spread the chocolate into an even layer.
  • Place the tart into the refrigerator and chill until firm, about 3 hours and up to 2 days.
  • TO SERVE: Cut the tart into small slices and serve with freshly whipped cream, raspberries, blueberries, and a light dusting of powdered sugar (all optional).
