No-Bake Dark Chocolate Cherry Tart



  • 3 tablespoons Ghirardelli® Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 stick butter (melted)
  • 1 bar Ghirardelli 100% Cacao Unsweetened Chocolate Baking Bar
  • 1 cup Ghirardelli 60% Cacoa Bittersweet Chocolate Baking Chips
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners sugar
  • 1 cup morello cherries (in syrun, drained thoroughly)


  1. Start with making the crust. Add the graham cracker, melted butter and cocoa powder to a mixing bowl and mix together well.
  2. Spoon out mixture and press the base firmly into the bottom and around the edges of a tart tin (rectangle 13 ¾ x 4 ½ inches or circle 9 ½ inches). Place in the fridge to chill.
  3. Chop the unsweetened chocolate bar into small chunks and combine with chocolate chips in a bowl. Set aside.
  4. Heat the heavy cream and sugar gently in a saucepan until just hot, but not boiling. Pour over the chocolate bowl and leave for a couple of minutes to melt, then stir gently until the chocolate has dissolved.
  5. Remove crust from fridge and spoon the drained morello cherries all over the base.
  6. Pour the chocolate on top and smooth down. Place back in the fridge to set for 2 hours.
  7. Once chilled you can slice and serve with a spoonful of the whipped cream, and decorate each slice with a few fresh cherries.
