Easy melt-in-your-mouth spiced chocolate tart

This is the easiest recipe ever! It requires only a few ingredients and 30 minutes. What are you waiting for?

Sometimes you don’t need long and complicate recipes to make great desserts! This tart is a simple chocolate crust filled with a rich melt-in-your-mouth chocolate filling.

The spices are a delicious addition to the chocolate filling, but feel free to omit if you prefer a plain version. I also added some coffee to enhance the chocolate flavor; no worries if you don’t like coffee, because you won’t be able to taste the coffee in the final result.

To make this tart gluten-free, please make sure you’re using certifed GF oat flour, or replace the oat flour with quinoa flakes.

To make this tart nut-free, replace the pecans with pumpkin or sunflower seeds.

Feel free to decorate the tart with some melted chocolate, salt flakes, nuts or any topping of choice.

The “melt-in-your-mouth” filling is just insane. You NEED that tart in your life!

The ingredients are for a 18x10x3 cm rectangular tart tin with removable bottom. You can also use round tins if that’s what you have. Please note that the removable bottom is very helpful to unmold the tart without damaging the tart.

I usually leave the tart into the mold until it’s completely set, then I gently press the bottom upwards to remove the tart without damaging it.

      Hello Ambere!
      I think you should try with 2 mini round tartlets. (About 10cm).
      Hope this helps!
