chocolate ganache tart recipe
Erin McDowell

We’re not shy about our love for chocolate. We’re also not shy about our love for cookies. Naturally, this recipe combines those two passions into one seriously decadent tart: smooth chocolate ganache in a chocolate-chip cookie crust. Just add some silky whipped cream on top and it’s like having sliceable milk and cookies for dessert.



14 ounces bittersweet chocolate

1 cup heavy cream

Whipped Cream

1 cup heavy cream

⅓ cup confectioners’ sugar

½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract


1. Make the Tart: Place the prepared chocolate-chip cookie tart crust on a flat baking sheet.

2. Place the chocolate in a medium heat-safe bowl. In a small pot, bring the cream to a boil over medium heat. Pour the hot cream over the chocolate and let sit for 15 to 30 seconds undisturbed.

3. Stir the ganache gently to combine until it’s totally smooth. If there are still pieces of chocolate, microwave the mixture in 10-second bursts until smooth.

4. Pour the warm ganache into the crust and use a spatula to smooth it into an even layer. Transfer to the refrigerator to chill until set, 20 to 30 minutes.

5. Make the Whipped Cream: In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whip attachment, whip the cream with the sugar and vanilla extract to medium peaks.

6. Spread the finished cream on top of the tart. Serve immediately.
