Tips for No Bake Caramel Chocolate Tart Recipe
- Buy the best caramel you can afford. You could use a tin of Carnation caramel which would work fine – but a higher end ‘salted caramel sauce’ will taste SO much more indulgent. (I used Tesco finest, see link further down in this post.)
- Make the night before so you’ve got less to do on the day of your event. I always sleep really well knowing there’s a dessert waiting for me in the fridge!
- When making the ganache filling, make sure you chop the chocolate as finely as possible to ensure it will all melt evenly.
- Made the ganache filling but it still has lumps of chocolate/butter? No problem! Heat in the microwave in 10 second bursts stirring well after each time. Be very careful not to overheat though – a little at a time!
- Top with a few flakes of sea salt before you put in the fridge to chill for an extra salty kick.
- If you don’t like super rich desserts, try using 50/50 dark and milk chocolate. Don’t substitute all the dark chocolate though as it will likely be too sweet.

Caramel Chocolate Tart Recipe: How to Make the Biscuit Base
No need to grease or line your tin with this recipe! Just crack straight on.
Tip the golden Oreos into the food processor and blitz until they become very fine crumbs. Yes – that includes the fillings as well! Then melt the butter in a bowl in the microwave in 10 second blasts and pour it into the biscuits. Pulse again until it starts to clump together.
Now tip all the biscuit crumbs into the fluted tin and press them firmly into the base and sides.
Pour the caramel sauce into the biscuit base and smooth out as best as you can. Then pop it into the freezer to firm up while we make the filling.
Caramel Chocolate Tart Recipe: How to Make the Chocolate Ganache Filling
Finely chop that dark chocolate and place it in a large bowl along with the butter.
In a small saucepan, gently heat the double cream over a low heat. Keep going until it just hits boiling point – but don’t let it boil. Then pour the hot cream all over the chocolate/butter and let it sit for 5 minutes.
When the 5 minutes are up, give it a good stir and it should magically transform into a beautiful silky smooth chocolate ganache.
Pour the ganache over the caramel and smooth out with a spatula. Now all that’s left to do is place it into the fridge to set for a minimum of 1 hour.
When you’re ready to serve, remove the tart from the tin. Then put a tablespoon of caramel sauce in a piping bag or plastic food bag, snip the end and pipe zig zags all over the top. Slice and enjoy! Store any uneaten chocolate tart in the fridge and consume within 3-4 days.
You could really take this chocolate tart up a gear and make your own salted caramel sauce. There’s a great recipe over at Sally’s Baking Addiction here if you want to have a go!
