Easy Chocolate Coconut Tart

This five ingredient Chocolate Coconut Tart couldn’t be easier or more seductive! A chocolate cookie crust contains a chocolate coconut ganache that’s sprinkled with coconut and chocolate curls.

Can you believe it's only about 2 weeks until Valentine's Day?  Didn't we just celebrate New Years?  I can't believe how time flies.  Valentine's Day is a good reason to make a decadent dessert.  Can anyone say chocolate?  There nothing better than a dark chocolate sauce.  Add in some coconut and you have the dessert of your dreams in the form of a tart that reminds you of an Almond Joy bar!


This decadent dessert only needs five ingredients.  How easy is that?  A chocolate cookie crust holds a pool of chocolate coconut ganache that’s then sprinkled with chocolate curls and shredded coconut.  HEAVEN!

The chocolate coconut ganache flavor is definitely the star of this tart and is easy to make!  Heavy cream, dark chocolate chips and Smucker's Simple Delight Chocolate Coconut Flavored Topping are whisked together to make this decadent sauce.  The crust is a simple chocolate wafer cookie crushed and combined with some melted butter.  Couldn't be easier, really.

I hope you make this seductive tart for your Valentine this year, it totally sets the mood!


Easy Chocolate Coconut Tart

serves 8-10

32 chocolate wafer cookies (I used
Nabisco Famous Wafers)
6 Tbls butter, melted
1 1/4 cups heavy cream
1 cup dark chocolate chips
1 cup
Smucker's Simple Delight Chocolate Coconut Flavored Topping
Garnish:  chocolate bar curls and shredded coconut

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a food processor, add cookies and pulse until you have fine crumbs.  Add the melted butter and pulse until just combined.  

To a tart pan add cookie crumbs and press along the bottom and up the sides.  I use the bottom of a measuring cup to even it out and compact it down.  Place on a baking sheet and place in the preheated oven.  Bake 20 minutes or until set in the middle.  Remove and place on a wire rack.  Cool completely. 

Meanwhile, in a microwave safe bowl, add heavy cream, chocolate chips and chocolate coconut sauce. Microwave on high 1 minute and stir together until melted.  Pour the sauce into the cooled tart shell.  Refrigerate about 1-2 hours until set.  Garnish with chocolate curls and shredded coconut and serve.
