Quick & Easy: Nutty Chocolate Tart {Eggless}

Unlike usual tart recipes,the crust here is simply made of biscuit crumbs and butter,which means no hard work on a dough!

Is your sweet tooth acting up again?Trust me,ignoring it is one of the hardest things to do.Besides,why ignore it,when you can very easily honor it?
One of the most stunning chocolate desserts is surprisingly,also the easiest.A sure hit at parties,this inviting preparation is delectable,lush chocolate set over a biscuit base.Nuts add crunch,raisins add chewiness.

Whether you make it for yourself,or for family and friends,you will surely see faces lighting up in delight!

Cooking Time : 8 minutes
Servings : 6

3/4 cup digestive biscuit crumbs - digestive biscuits crushed using a rolling pin or briefly ground in a food processor to make coarse crumbs
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup cream
2 and 1/2 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon Nutella
5 walnuts - roughly chopped
5 almonds - roughly chopped
5 cashewnuts - roughly chopped
10 raisins
2 tablespoons cocoa powder(Optional)

Pre-heat the oven to 200 degrees C/390 degrees F.
In the meanwhile,melt the butter in a microwave.Alternately,you may do it in a small pan over the gas range.Pour this golden,molten liquid on digestive biscuit crumbs,and mix well with a spoon to combine.Then,press this mixture,preferably with your fingers,into the bottom of a 7.5 inch or 8 inch springform cake tin.Place the cake tin in the oven,and bake for 4 minutes.Divine cookie-like scent will fill your kitchen.
Allow the cake tin to cool down to room temperature,as you stir cream and semisweet chocolate chips in a sauce pan over low heat.The chocolate will quickly melt,turning the contents of the pan into a smooth,luscious,dark sin.Now,switch off heat and add the remaining ingredients - Nutella,walnuts,almonds,cashewnuts and raisins.Give a good stir,and pour in cake tin,over the tart crust.
Let the tart cool down to room temperature,then refrigerate until serving time.Cut into wedges,dust with cocoa powder if desired,and honor your sweet tooth!

1. Digestive biscuits used for making crumbs in this recipe,can be substituted with any other biscuits or cookies of one's choice.They have been used here to cut the richness of this dessert by adding lightness,and a different flavor.
2. Do not worry about the cake tin not being full.Large wedges of tart are not required,it is to be served in small portions.

In case not all nuts are available for Nutty Chocolate Tart,feel free to substitute them with others.
