Chocolate Orange Tart



My son and I have been sick. I would have never thought I would be sick all the time during the summer but since we moved to Saudi Arabia it seems my family stays sick. The homes here do not have central heat and air like we do in the states. You get your air and heat from a window AC/heater although they put them in the walls not the windows here. Anyway, lets get to business this fabulous tart.

You will never believe how easy this no bake tart is until you actually make it. My husband actually told me this was the best dessert I have ever made and well you all know I have made a lot so thats a pretty good review as far as I am concerned. The mix of these ingredients is a perfect match. You get the creaminess in the qashta, the chocolate in the chips and then the hint on fresh orange lingering behind. This will take you about 10 minutes to put together.

2 cups crushed chocolate cookies
2 cups crushed tea biscuits
2/3 cup unsalted butter, melted
2 (170 grams) cans cream (qashta)
1 bag of semi sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup fresh orange juice
1 tablespoon gelatin powder, dissolved in 3 tablespoons hot water

1. In a large mixing bowl add cookies, tea biscuits and butter. Coat crumbs with butter until moist. In a 26 cm tart pan carefully press mixture all over bottom and on sides. Place in refrigerator for 15 minutes.

2. In a microwave safe bowl add chocolate chips. Heat 1-2 minutes until chocolate has melted. In a large mixing bowl add qashta, chocolate, orange juice and gelatin.

3. Pour mixture into tart pan, cover and place in refrigerator over night.

Yields: 8 servings.
