No bake chocolate star tarts that are part tart, part cheesecake, with a crumbly digestive biscuit crust topped with a smooth dark chocolate filling. Serve with an icing sugar star and a dollop of cream or ice cream


  • 170g chocolate digestive biscuits, crushed
  • 50g butter
  • 100g milk chocolate
  • For the filling:
  • 200ml double cream
  • Few drops vanilla extract
  • 50g caster sugar
  • 150g dark chocolate, chopped into small squares
  • 25g unsalted butter
  • 2tbsp icing sugar, to decorate


  • Whizz the crushed biscuits in a food processor to make fine crumbs. Melt the butter and chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water. Mix with the crumbs and press into 6x10cm loose-based, lightly oiled tart tins. Chill for 30 mins.

  • For the filling, gently heat the cream, vanilla and sugar, stirring until the sugar has dissolved and you see steam rising off the surface. Put the chocolate and butter in a large bowl and pour over the cream mixture, stirring until melted and smooth.

  • Pour into the set tart cases and put in the fridge to set for 2 hrs. Cut star stencils out of card, place over the set tarts and dust with icing sugar to decorate.
