total time: 10 mins & 8 hours, serves : 1 large tart, author : gloria
200 gms digestive biscuits
150 gms fine desiccated coconut powder
1 tbsp cocoa powder
¼-1/2 tsp lemon zest or rind
¼ cup melted butter
1 can sweetened condensed milk
200 gms dark chocolate (70%) – finely chopped
¼ cup vegetable shortening or margarine
Crush digestive biscuits in a food processor until coarse crumbs. Into this, add fine desiccated coconut powder, lemon zest or rind and cocoa powder. Blend everything together.
Tip it in a large mixing bowl and add the melted butter and sweetened condensed milk. Using a wooden spoon, mix to combine to incorporate nicely. Press this mixture into the base of the pan and around the edges; level it smoothly. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Melt the chocolate and margarine or vegetable shortening in a medium clean dry heat-proof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water (remember, the base of the bowl should not touch water). Stir for few minutes till the chocolate is completely melted and smooth.
Pour warm chocolate over the tart base and smooth the surface. Chill for at least 1 hour or until set preferably, overnight.
Before serving, bring it in room temperature; the left-overs can be stored in an air-tight boxes in the refrigerator or freezer.
Slice and enjoy!!!
my observations/notes :
– can use milk or white chocolate instead of dark.
- can use orange zest or peel instead of lemon
