Biscuit Tart Base

Baking Time: 15 minutes

250g      Chocolate Ripple BiscuitsDecadent Chocolate Tart
15g        Desiccated Coconut
110g      Unsalted Butter, melted

Crush the biscuits and combine with the coconut and melted butter. Press the mixture into the base and sides of a 25cm fluted flan tin and cool in the fridge for 10 – 15 minutes to allow the base to set.

Crispy Almonds

70g         Caster (Superfine) Sugar
50g         Water
250g       Almond Splinters

Preheat the oven to 160°C. Boil the sugar and water together in a small saucepan until all the sugar has dissolved. Pour the prepared sugar syrup over the almonds that have been placed in a bowl and mix together. Place the slithered almonds onto a lined baking tray and roast into the oven for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown. Turn the almonds every 5 minutes to ensure they roast evenly. Remove from the oven and leave at room temperature to cool.

Chocolate Filling

150ml     Bulla Thickened Cream
395g       Condensed Milk
30g         Unsalted Butter
400g       Callebaut Dark Chocolate
135g       Crispy Almonds (recipe above)

Boil the cream in a medium saucepan. Once the cream has boiled, immediately add in the condensed milk and butter. Using a spatula, stir gently over a low heat for a couple of minutes. Remove from the heat, add in the chocolate and whisk to combine. Pour the mixture into a bowl and add in two thirds of the slithered almonds. Mix until combined and pour into the prepared tart base. Place in the fridge for 3-4 hours to set.
