Chocolate biscuit tart shell:

To make a homemade tart shell, mix 175g chocolate biscuit crumbs with 90g melted butter and press firmly into a lightly greased 20 or 23cm pie dish or tart tin, covering the bottom and the sides.


To serve, try lightly dusting the top of the tart with good quality cocoa powder, and give each slice a dollop of whipped cream.
