No-Bake Chocolate Ganache Tart with Strawberries and Sea Salt Flakes

Are you ready for the Daytona 500??? No? Then why not have some easy no-bake chocolate ganache instead. With strawberries. And sea salt flakes. Did I mention no-bake? ๐Ÿ˜‰

When my friend Jodi posted this recipe on her blog, it went straight to the printer in prep for making this chocolate delight for my family.

Anyone who has known me for any length of time knows I’m not much of a baker of breads and sweet treats. But give me chocolate and sea salt? I’m game! Ooh, and the chocolatey pie crust is made from Oreo cookies. YES. Oreos. Cream filling and all. Shut up, right?

I halved the recipe since I don’t own an 11-inch tart pan that it called for. One that has a bottom that conveniently pops off the bottom no less. I missed this fact in my excitement to make the recipe, and PM’d Jodi asking her how on earth she got the tart out of the pan without destroying it. My tart was served from the dish, to the anxiously waiting mouths of my family and friends. My daughter and her friend dived into it with extra strawberries on top. It may be pretty with the strawberries arranged, but plan on serving extra strawberries with this, yum!

Without further ado, here is the recipe which is way shorter than my preceding ramblings:

No-Bake Chocolate Ganache Tart with Strawberries and Sea Salt Flakes
Adapted from Jodi at The Creative Life in Between

16 Oreo cookies
2 tablespoons butter, melted
6 ounces dark sweet chocolate (I used Bakerโ€™s German Sweet)
3/4 cup heavy cream
Sea salt flakes, for garnish
Fresh strawberries, halved-lengthwise
Additional melted chocolate, for garnish

Add the Oreo cookies to a food processor (I used my 2-cup Ninja) and process until they are fine crumbs. Pour in the melted butter, and pulse until the butter is combined.

Pour the crumb and butter mixture into a 9-inch (7 ยฝ at base) tart dish. Using your hands, pat the crust onto the bottom and up sides of dish. Refrigerate until for at least one hour before preparing and adding filling.

Pressing the Pie Crust

Pressing the Pie Crust

To make filling, break up chocolate and place in a heat-proof bowl. Add the heavy cream to a small sauce pan and bring to a boil. Immediately pour over chocolate. Allow the hot cream to melt the chocolate for a minute or two, then slowly whisk the mixture until smooth and fully incorporated. Pour into the chilled, firm crust. Refrigerate for four to six hours or overnight.

Lightly sprinkle sea salt flakes over the chocolate, then arrange the strawberry halves over top. Drizzle additional melted chocolate over all, if desired. This serves about six.

    OMG… you had me at “no bake” and then you said chocolate! Then you said Oreos… I almost had a When Harry Met Sally moment. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Wonderful dish, Kathryn. Mega hugs.

    No bake desserts, especially chocolate ones, always turn out so good. I sometimes wonder why I spend a lot of time making fancy desserts when there are recipes like this available. Yes, I would definitely have some extra strawberries on hand!

    Oh my. That looks decadent, Kathryn. Is this the lo-cal version? Ha ha. It looks easy to make, actually. I’ll have to try it when we’re having company, or the hubby and I will eat the whole thing. ๐Ÿ™‚

      LOL not even close to lo-cal. ๐Ÿ˜€ Yes, it’s definitely a “company” dessert, you don’t want this hanging out in the house to long with chocolate lovers.

        That’s what I figured. We are in the midst of girl scout cookie season and have no self-control at all. A chocolate ganache would be heavenly and deadly. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Oh yes, of course! I had my thoughts on it in the post (it was AWESOME, etc. etc.) but then the WordPress Monkeys (er… Gremlins) decided to pull the “We’re sorry, we had trouble saving that, please refresh and try again” on me. I spent 45 minutes writing up my post, only to lose every word of it. So my briefer, version, albeit still wordy, didn’t have all that in there, darn it! I was so frustrated this morning. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Okay, so I had to stop by Jodi’s blog, too, who I follow but had missed this! Wow, wonderful and now on my HAVETOMAKELIST> that trumps my havetomakelist, in case you’re wondering. See, if I were home, I’d be running right now to get the ingredients, lol!! No 24 hour stores in the middle of South Dakota, haha!!

      You are TOO funny! I am sure with your schedule lately it was easy to miss a blog here and there. I totally went out the next day and bought the ingredients, so I had SOME restraint. I have two lists just like yours, lol. My HAVETOMAKELIST I actually print out the recipes and stick them right on top of my laptop. My other list gets jotted down on an ever-growing handwritten list. I’m a tad old-fashioned that way. *grin*

    I need to go back to printing out recipes I really want to make. I get distracted and forget sometimes what I want to make and even forget what I bought ingredients for…That’s a great idea!
