Biscoff Tart 

The flavour of this tart is like that of silky caramel! You'll have to try it yourself to fully indulge in its decadence.

Ingredients 

Crust 

200g of Biscoff biscuits

6 tbsp of dairy-free butter or margarine

Biscoff filling

1 can of coconut milk (cream only)

300g of dairy-free white chocolate

100g of Biscoff spread

Toppings (optional)

Biscoff spread (melted)

Dairy-free white chocolate

Biscoff biscuits

Method

To make the crust

Line a tart tin with baking paper.

Place the Biscoff biscuits into a food processor or blender and whizz up until crumb-like.

Melt the butter or margarine and pour into the biscuits and mix together until like wet sand.

Firmly press the biscuit mixture into the lined tin until its compact.

Place in the fridge or freezer whilst you make the filling.

To make the Biscoff filling

Open a can of coconut milk, drain the clear liquid part and only use the thick white cream.

Place the cream into a medium-sized saucepan, and heat on medium until it comes to a low boil.

Place the white chocolate into a heatproof bowl and pour over the hot cream.

Allow to sit for a few minutes then stir together.

The cream will melt the chocolate.

Stir in the Biscoff spread until smooth.

Pour the filling onto the crust and level with a spoon or offset spatula.

Place in the freezer for 2-3 hours, or until set.

Melt some Biscoff spread and pour over the tart (optional)

Place back into the freezer to set. This will take around 30 minutes.

Serve and enjoy.

227g melting chocolate

Place Oreos and cream cheese in a food processor with the blade attachment and process until completely crushed and starting to ball up.

Roll mix into 3cm balls and place on a lined baking sheet.

Freeze for at least 15 minutes or until completely firm, otherwise they may fall apart during coating.

Melt 227g of chocolate according to package instructions. Coat the Oreo truffles with chocolate and place back on the lined baking sheet.

If wanting to coat twice, place them in the freezer until firm and then repeat the coating process. To decorate with white chocolate, make sure the dark chocolate coating is completely firm first
