No-Bake Terry’s Chocolate Orange Tart!

A DELICIOUS No-Bake Terry’s Chocolate Orange Tart – a No-Bake Crust, and a No-Bake filling… heaven!

Obviously, I am obsessed with Terry’s Chocolate Orange… I now have SEVEN recipes dedicated to the delicious Chocolate that is all worldly and holy – but this one is SO easy to make, and so delicious to eat it is silly.

Obviously, one of my best successes so far is my No-Bake Chocolate Orange Cheesecake – its the second most popular recipe on my blog by far, and you all LOVE it!

But this little beauty is for those of you who want something deliciously No-Bake, creamy, chocolatey orangey – but even easier than my cheesecake! It’s basically just the cheesecake, but without the cream cheese, but hey ho… it’s delicious. And definitely one for those who hate cream cheese!

A few weeks ago I posted my recipe for my No-Bake Honeycomb Crunchie Pie and you all loved how easy it is, and how delicious it is. Even my boyfriend, who is equally as cheesecake obsessed as I am, LOVED that Pie.

The method for this, is very similar to the crunchie pie – a delicious biscuit crust, and a smooth, chocolatey and creamy filling that takes minutes to make – perfection.

Seriously though – this dessert is SO incredibly easy to make – like its easier than my cheesecakes as there are fewer ingredients, and as there are sides of biscuit crust, it doesn’t have to hold itself!

This is definitely going to be on my dessert table this Christmas as all of my taste testers utterly loved and adored eating it – some people may think when I say this that I have made it up to sound good – but honestly, they LOVED it. (And all the other recipes they review!)

As I am currently on a Gluten-Free diet (Doctors attempting to find out what’s wrong with me), I use Gluten-Free Digestives for my base, and as everything else is already Gluten-Free I am dandy – but you can make the base with whatever biscuits you like!

You could use Oreos like in my No-Bake Honeycomb Crunchie Pie, or you could use Graham Crackers or anything! The ideas are endless – and any biscuit would match the delicious creamy filling!

I realise that this dessert does look quite plain in comparison to most other desserts on my website, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Honestly, just blitzing all the biscuits in, whipping the middle up and slapping on a load of Terry’s Segments, and you have a simple yet DELIGHTFUL dessert.

You can make any other flavours you want as well, but I stuck to Terry’s, because obviously… it’s the best. ENJOY!

Ingredients

Biscuit Base

  • 300 g Digestives
  • 100 g Unsalted Butter

Tart Filling

  • 300 ml Double Cream
  • 75 g Icing Sugar
  • 250 g Terry's Chocolate Orange

Decoration

  • Terry's Chocolate Orange
  • Sprinkles

Instructions

For the Biscuit Base

  • Using a Food Processor, or a large bowl with a rolling pin, blitz your biscuits up to a fine crumb. 
  • Melt your butter, and mix it in till combined. 
  • Press into the sides and base of a 20cm Pie/Flan Tin - I tend to squish the sides in first, and then do the base of it. 

For the Filling

  • Chop the Chocolate up and melt in a bowl over a pan of simmering water - or in the microwave in short bursts on a low heat. Leave to cool slightly. 
  • Whip the Cream and the Icing Sugar up to soft peaks, I tend to use an electric hand whisk for this bit as I am lazy, but you can easily do it by hand with a bit of arm power. 
  • You don't want to whip the cream up too much, as soft peaks are best for folding in chocolate. 
  • Fold through the slightly cooled Terry's Chocolate Orange, and then spread the mixture onto the biscuit base. 
  • I then add my Terry's Chocolate Oranges slices and sprinkles now so they set into the tart - but you can also do this after.
  • Leave the Tart to set in the fridge for 5-6 hours, or overnight. 

Notes

  • I nearly always use the Milk Terry’s Chocolate Orange as its my favourite, but there are so so so many types now you can use which ever you fancy!
  • If you want a stiffer set, then don’t whip the cream up, stir in the liquid double cream and it’ll be less moussey!
  • You can easily double up the recipe to make a bigger & deeper pie – add another half of the base recipe (I.e. use 450g Digestives, and 150g butter) and double the filling recipe! Use a 25cmx5cm deep tart tin!
  • This dessert will last in the fridge for 2-3days, covered.

    Hi,

    I searched for gluten-free in your recipes, and this one appeared. I just want to confirm if it is gluten free? Baking for a friend. Thanks!

      Hey – so this can be gluten-free, if you use gluten-free ingredients – such as gluten-free digestives! (And checking all other ingredients)

    Hi Jane,
    I’m really disappointed with how this turned out. I left the chocolate to cool, it wasn’t too hot but it wasn’t cold either and I put in into the cream & icing sugar and it split the whole mixture. This happens to me every time. Can you tell me what I’m doing wrong? Is there a time estimate to when the chocolate is at the right temp to pour in, that I can follow next time?
    Hopefully it still tastes nice 🙂
    Thanks!

      It might just be that it was over whisked slightly? I’ve genuinely hand on my heart never had this mixture split – I have a video which shows me making it on the post. I melt mine in the microwave so it’s never particularly hot, to begin with, but then it’s left maybe five minutes or so? It’s hard to say though, as microwaves can heat chocolate differently!

      I love Jane’s recipes as they are relatively simple to follow. I made the Chocolate Orange Mousse a few months ago, so I was eager to try this. Overall it tasted great, but unfortunately my base did not bind at all. Has anyone else has issues with the base? I noticed the cheesecake recipe has an extra 50g butter to the same quantity of biscuits. Is there a typo in the tart recipe, or should it still have worked for me?
      I will definitely be making this again (once I get my base sorted).

      I use the recipe that is stated – I find it better for a tart. You just have to really push it into the tin. However, you can use more butter if you wish.

    My 12 year old daughter loves cake making and was looking for an easy cheesecake recipe to try. She has made this successfully several times now, so simple but really tasty. Everyone in the family loves it.

      Most flat tins have a loose bottom, so if the sides are stuck, I carefully put a knife between the two bits of the tin from the underneath and push them apart – this is quite hard to explain… But, other times I just put the dessert on top of a tin, and carefully push the tin down, and then remove from the base!

    Made this the other night. Extremely excited for all my work colleagues to try it the next day. It had been in my fridge for 12 hours. However when we came to cut in to it, the filling had not set. It was Like a thick yoghurt consistency. What did i do wrong? All my work colleagues still thought it was incredibly delicious but I was disheartened with my turnout

      Just means it wasn’t quite whipped up enough – if it was still smooth and such, you were just a little off from whipping it up. Try to whip it up for a wee bit longer next time and it’ll be perfect x

      Today I have made pavlova, cheesecake and a yule log successfully. I find your comment hurtful. Tips on how to prevent this happening would be helpful, as it is a common problem when combining cream and chocolate

    • Jane's Patisserie
      December 24, 2017 at 5:01 pm

      Thats amazing! However, I found your comment hurtful as well. Comments such as “don’t waste your time and money” and “this recipe is useless” aren’t fair to make, you could have just asked what could have been done, as thousands of people have made this successfully. Whip the cream up less next time, and combine slowly. Also make sure your chocolate isn’t piping hot, but not completely cooled either.

When I saw theB&M one I thought it looked like a poor version of yours and then checked the ingredients and it was the same!!!!

    Do you reckon it would work with after eight mints?

      December 17, 2017 at 7:17 pm

      Yes! I wouldn’t recommend melting the after eights for the filling, but you could use a normal chocolate, add mint extract, and decorate with the after eights.

      Hello!
      Just about to make this and realised I don’t have the right sized tin (with removable base) typical 🤦‍♀️

      Have you made this in a normal pie/flan dish? How would you get it out/is it easy to take a slice out? Any advice 😩

      Thanks in advance, one stressed baker! 😂

      I would suggest putting a disc of paper at the bottom/around the sides, but it will be slightly faffy to get out otherwise!

    Hi Jane
    This looks delicious..and very fattening but what the hell, it is Christmas !
    When using double cream and melted chocolate in a recipe, I put the chocolate pieces into the cold cream and heat them together. It saves washing up!
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

      I don’t do that with this as whipping the cream makes it more mousse like rather than a hard ganache 🙂 hence the recipe. Merry Christmas!
