This no-bake chocolate dulce de leche tart is one of the easiest and most delicious chocolate desserts I have ever made. This one is definitely sticking in top 10, at least for a while.
Let me tell you a little bit about the recipe…. the base is made of biscuits, ground almonds and melted butter, just like you make a cheesecake base, easy and quick. You can choose your favorite type of biscuits – chocolate, butter, vanilla… whatever you like, just keep in mind that filling is super rich so, if you ask me, I would go for the classic pettit beurre biscuits.
As for the filling… it is made with total of 3 ingredients, ready in 5 minutes, super smooth and rich.
I hope you don’t need more convincing and you will give this recipe a try. You won’t regret it!
Ingredients for the crust:
180 grams (6.5 oz) biscuits, finely processed in a food processor
50 grams (1.8 oz) almond flour
110 grams (4 oz) butter, melted
1 tablespoon powder sugar (more or less, to taste)
Ingredients for the filling:
400 grams (14 oz) dulce de leche
200 grams (7 oz) dark chocolate (60% cocoa)
100 ml. (3.5 fl. oz) heavy whipping cream
Grease a non-stick 20 cm (8 inch) cake springform with removable sides.
Mix biscuits (could be chocolate or any other kind you prefer) with almond flour, butter and powder sugar in a small bowl – the mixture should look like moist sand/crumbs. Transfer to the prepared springform and spread evenly over the bottom and sides of the pan. Use a flat-bottomed glass to press the biscuit mixture over the base of the tin. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 30 minutes to chill.
In the meantime prepare the filling:
Melt chocolate with cream in a large bowl. Add dulce de leche and stir until nice and smooth. Pour chocolate mixture over the chilled biscuit base and place back in the fridge for about 2 hours or overnight.
Optional: decorate with freshly whipped cream.
Serve cold, out of the fridge.
This looks really good! Do you think I can substitute the almond flour with all purpose flour?
Hi Candy! Thanks for the nice words. In case you don’t have almond flour, just use the same amount of biscuits or graham crackers instead. Since the base is no bake it will not be very good to use raw flour. Hope you like it!
How do you create the perfectly round balls on top?
Hi Eileen! I used a piping bag, fitted with a large round tip. This particular tip is Wilton, I think it’s size 1A. This one here is simple sweetened heavy whipping cream. It’s quick and easy to make, and looks beautiful on every dessert. I hope you will like this tart!
Your photography is just gorgeous! This chocolate tart looks absolutely delicious, too!
Thank you so much, Marsha! Have a lovely weekend!
I hope I don”t sound dumb! But what is dulce de leche?! Is it a jar of caramel sauce? Is this something you can find easily in a supermarket?
Hi Ruthy! Not at all! Here is Bulgaria we have commercial dulce de leche, sold in a jar. I don’t know if you can find that in your area, but if you do it should say dulce de leche on the label. Basically it’s a caramel sauce, like salted caramel, but a bit thicker. You could also use caramelized condensed milk for this recipe. I’ve tried it and it’s just as perfect! You should check at your local retailers. You can easily make caramelized condensed milk yourself at home by boiling a can of condensed milk. There are plenty of recipes around the internet for the boiled condensed milk method. It’s a real money saver! I hope you find the ingredients and be able to make this recipe, it’s really worth it!
I hope I don’t sound dumb, but what do you mean by biscuit? Is it something like a shortbread cookie?
The recipe looks delicious and I really would like to try it.
Hi Peggy! Not at all! English is not my native, so sometimes there are some misunderstandings, for which I apologize. What I mean by biscuits is simply store bought plain cookies, those you use when making cheesecake base, or graham crackers… I would appreciate it if you let me know what’s the most accurate name for those so I can correct the ingredients list. Thanks and I hope you like this tart!
Oh, oh! This looks so incredible! I want a slice right now!
Thank you, Bethany! It is really delicious and so easy to make! Have a wonderful week!
This just looks so delicious. And the ingredient list is so simple! A winner.
Thanks Jessie! This tart is really delicious, you have to try it!
