Oreo Chocolate Tart


I know I've been away for a really long time. I'm in between kitchens now.. my mum's kitchen is too far away from me while it's almost odd to use my mil's kitchen. We're awaiting to collect the keys to our first home! In another 3-4 months, I'll have a kitchen ALL TO MYSELF to play. Till then, I'm only able to bake and cook so much ):

Anyway, it's AWESOME that it's the March Holidays! I'm more than delighted to have this break. After all, teaching is a really really really tough job. I knew it was tough... but I didn't know it'd be THIS TOUGH. Nevertheless, I know that God has allowed for many things that has happened to happen cos' he knows I'm up to it. And so, I'm gritting my teeth with all my might... and I'm gonna make the best out of the experiences I've had and will have!

Anyway, school aside, it's odd how I've had plenty of odd food cravings. And NO, I am not pregnant yet. I've been in love with Awfully Chocolate's cakes and gosh.. the fudge is just SO GOOD. I'm still waiting for some hardworking part of me to try baking it so I don't have to pay a bomb for the cake I love so much. So as I'm not that hardworking of late... I decided to do a lazier decadent version of something really chocolatey. So here's my Oreo Chocolate Tart. 

It's simple. It's no bake. It's easy to prepare. What else can one ask for? 
This recipe takes less than an hour to prepare, depending on how speedy you are... 
So what are you waiting for? (:

  4. Hi Cynthia, is it difficult to remove the tart from the pan? Is the oreo base fragile?

    Thanks!

    1. Hello Joyce,

      Once it's set it will be easy to remove. You have to ensure that you compact the mixture well in the first place though. Else the crust will crumble.

  5. Hi Cynthia, I have tried making it today...but silly me that I saw ur video steps wrongly. Instead of putting the final product in the chiller to let it set for 3 hrs, I put it in the freezer to let it set. By the time I realised this mistake, it was 5 hrs later.. I wonder can it still be eaten? I have brought it down to the chiller compartment though.

  8. Instead of whipping cream, I bought the cooking cream? Can I use that? The difference is in the fats content.
