Black Forest Tart

Black forest Tart

Ours is a household, where anything chocolate is devoured down pretty quickly! Both my siblings, me and mommy, all of us love the dark richness of Chocolate. Daddy is not crazy for desserts. He loves all Indian sweets, but he isn’t a fan of the cakes with frostings that make an appearance on the blog :D.

This Black Forest Tart was made at just an hour’s notice. So you can imagine how quick and easy this is! My brother was craving something chocolate and whipped cream. As I was checking my pantry staples to bake something for him, I came across a box of candied cherries which I had picked at my last supermarket visit. The cherries, chocolate and whipped cream could make a delightful Black Forest dessert.
As I had made an Eggless Blackforest Cake earlier, I decided on this Easy Peasy No Bake Black Forest Tart.

A simple buttery chocolate cookie crust is topped with a rich dark chocolate ganache. Candied cherries are then sprinkled generously over it, followed by whipped cream cheese frosting! TADA! Ready to be enjoyed! It’s eggless,there is no baking involved and it’s delicious. Need I say more?!
The Black Forest Tart is an innovative spin on the regular Black Forest dessert. It’s prettier, classier and as delicious as a slice of the Black Forest Cake.
