White chocolate raspberry tart
It’s the summer, it’s hot, and all I want is something sweet that doesn’t require an oven… no-bake desserts are the BEST! And this one? This delicious white chocolate and raspberry tart? The best of the best.
I went raspberry picking not so long ago, and made a large batch of raspberry coulis – I make jams with freshly picked fruit, I freeze fruit that is going ‘off’ so I can blend it for smoothies.. but I also make coulis because it’s so easy.
With an abundance of raspberries, I was in the mood to make something with them… and the classic white chocolate and raspberry combination screamed out to me again! We all know I am completely obsessed with it, but… yeah… I just can’t stop!
My white chocolate & raspberry loaf cake, my cupcakes, my cheesecake, and more… I honestly just can’t stop combining two of my favourite flavours! The sharpness of the raspberry, mixed with the sweetness of the white chocolate is just the best thing ever.
So for the base, I followed the same ideas as my Terry’s chocolate orange tart and my Easter tart and used a biscuit base. If you want a pastry base, have a look at this recipe for it! I really did want to stick to the ‘no-bake’ theme so the biscuit base had to do!
I used digestives, but you can basically use any biscuit. Some need less butter, so if you change it maybe stick with 100g of butter (especially for chocolate coated biscuits, ‘light’ biscuits, and filled biscuits!). I just blend the biscuits to a really fine crumb, mix in the melted butter, and press into the bottom and sides of this lovely tart tin!
For the filling, it’s basically a white chocolate ganache with a dab of butter inside. It’s not quite the right ratio to set completely solid, as you don’t want it to! You do need quite a large amount of white chocolate however, so don’t be alarmed by the 600g!!
You want to chop the white chocolate quite finely to reduce the amount of mixing you will need to do – and add it to a bowl along with the butter. Heat the double cream in a pan until just before boiling point, and pour over the chocolate and butter.
You let the mixture sit for a little bit, and then you stir until smooth! If you ever still have lumps of chocolate left, you can add the mixture back to the cream pan for a short while and stir until melted – you just want to make sure you don’t over heat it!
Pour the white chocolate ganache mix on to the base, and swirl through your coulis – it’s easy to just spoonful on some small amounts of coulis, and swirl through with the end of a cake tester. Leave the tart to set for a few hours till firm, and then decorate!
I use a loose bottomed tin so that it’s MUCH easier to remove! If you don’t, you’ll want to just serve the dessert from the dish you have used! You can’t really invert a tart like this, it might get messy!! Top the dessert with raspberries, freeze dried raspberries, and some grated white chocolate!
White Chocolate Raspberry Tart!
- 300 g digestives
- 150 g unsalted butter
- 100 g raspberries
- 1 tbsp caster sugar
- 2 tbsp water
White Chocolate Filling
- 600 g white chocolate (finely chopped)
- 250 ml double cream
- 25 g unsalted butter
- 100 g raspberries
- Freeze Dried Raspberries
- Grated White Chocolate
- Mix the digestive biscuits in a food processor or break the biscuits into a fine crumb in a bowl with a rolling pin.
- Add the melted unsalted butter and mix together until combined.
- Spread onto the bottom and sides of an 23cm loose bottomed tart tin. I usually start on the sides, and then cover the bottom last.
- Add your raspberries, sugar and water to a pan. Heat on a low-medium heat until the fruit starts to break down and soften.
- Once heated for about 3-4 minutes, remove from the heat and puree to a liquid.
- Pass the coulis through a sieve to remove the seeds and let the mixture cool.
- Add the white chocolate and butter to a large bowl.
- Pour the cream into a small pan, and heat the cream until just before boiling point.
- Pour the cream onto the chocolate and butter and leave to sit for five minutes.
- Whisk the mixture until it smooths - if any lumps of chocolate remain, add the mixture back into the pan and heat on a low heat until smooth.
- Pour the ganache into the tart case - dollop in about half of the raspberry coulis, and swirl the mixture together with a cake skewer.
- Set the tart in the fridge for a couple of hours until set.
- Remove the tart from the tin carefully, and put onto a serving plate.
- Decorate the tart with some fresh raspberries and freeze dried raspberries, and some grated white chocolate!
- Serve with an extra drizzle of coulis!
- If you want to use milk chocolate, use a ratio of 400g milk chocolate and 200ml of cream.
- If you want to use dark chocolate, use a ratio of 300g dark chocolate and 300ml of cream.
- This tart will last in the fridge for three days!
- You can use fresh or frozen raspberries for the coulis.
- You can swap out the raspberries for any other berry!
- You can use more coulis in the filling, but be careful when swirling!
- I used this tart tin in this recipe!
- I buy my freeze dried raspberries online!

Hey Jane, i wonder how big the tart case should be?
Hiya! I use a 23cm loose bottomed tart tin. Hope this helps! x
Absolutely amazing! My favourite go too recipe
I made this over Easter and my friends loved it! Just wondering if it freezes well.
Yes absolutely – you can freeze it for up to 3 months! Enjoy! x
Hi Jane. I lined the biscuit base with raspberries then covered with the white chocolate ganache. I took tart out of fridge 20 minutes before serving was amazing.Another delicious recipe of yours. X
Can I put lemon curd over the white choc instead if making the raspberry coulis as I’ve never made it before
I made this but did a peach and raspberry version. I made a pastry base then a peach and raspberry caramel. Then did half the filling as described here and left it white, then a second layer orange colour and added a peach flavour. (Inused a bit of peach syrup reduced down to make a “flavouring” )
I decorated with peaches and rasps. Looked awesome
Hi Jane. Just wandering if I could put some raspberries in tart case then fill with the white chocolate ganache would it still set properly.
Hiya! If you mean putting the raspberries on top of the biscuit base then yes absolutely! Enjoy! x
I’ve made this twice now and it tastes divine.
I’m just wondering if the consistency is meant to be dense? Not sure if I’m doing something wrong of if it’s meant to be a little bit hard/chewy?
Hiya! This tart is meant to be a set solid ganache filling – so not really chewy! Hope this helps! x
Hello, I love your recipes! So many fab options. I can’t decide whether to make with white, milk or dark choc. Leaning towards dark – has anyone tried with dark? Going to make for NYE dinner party tomorrow night!
I am looking to make the filling dairy free. Would this work with D Free chocolate or dark chocolate with the plant based double cream alternative?
Hi Jane can I swap the biscuits for shortbread instead of digestives
Yes you can! Just reduce the butter to 100g and you’ll be fine! Hope this helps x
I don’t have a tart tin with a loose bottom, can I use a tart tin that doesn’t have a loose bottom
Hi Jane, I’ve got your booked and am planning to make this recipe. The recipe says ‘Bake: 30 mins’ but I’m a bit confused as not sure if the filling has to be baked or left to set, or are all elements left to set in the fridge.
It’s a general summary of time x
I’ve made this before and it’s gone down a treat! I’m wondering, if I want to make it with gluten free white chocolate will I have to alter the recipe for the filling at all?
Hiya, love your recipes! Can’t wait to try this – do you think I could use a glass Pyrex tart tin?? Thank you!!! X
Yeah I’m sure that would work well! x
I live in the Netherlands and we don’t have double cream. Do you think I can use whipped cream instead? I replaced double cream for whipped cream before in one of your cheesecake recipes and it didnt get stiff enough and collapsed. I want to prevent something like that again haha!
Do you mean pre-whipped cream? That won’t work unfortunately – I’m not sure what your equivalent is but you need the fattiest liquid cream you have x
I plan to make this tomorrow, if I were to use shortbread biscuits for the base, what would be the quantity and ratio for biscuit to butter?
Thank you! – I continue to love all your recipes by the way, I received your book yesterday in the post and can’t wait to try all your exclusive recipes!
Hi how many days will this last/keep fresh?
Im wanting it for Saturday but thinking of making it either this evening (thursday) or tomorrow (Friday) but want to make sure it will still be okay to eat on Saturday if I do make in advance, many thanks
It lasts 3 days in the fridge, so can be made a couple of days in advance!
Hello, can I use shop bought coulis? If so how many MLS? Or grams please
I made this for my daughter’s 20th birthday yesterday as she’s a fan of white chocolate and raspberry tarts. It was a big hit!!! Thank you for sharing this recipe Jane😘
Currently making this as we speak, just wondering what do you do with the other half of the raspberry coulis?
All your recipes are amazing, I don’t know how you think them all up and know what quantities work ect.
Hey! As mentioned on the recipe you serve it with the tart! x
Tried it at the weekend- delicious!! Thanks for the recipe! I was just wandering if I could change the white chocolate to milk/dark chocolate next time please? X
Yep! There’s notes on the post already about that xx
This looks amazing! I cannot get double cream here in Austria, would mascarpone loosened with single cream to the consistency of double cream work? Or any alternatives I could try? Thank you 😊
Hey! Thank you! And you basically want whatever cream you would normally use to make ganache with – for example, in America, they’d typically use heavy cream! xx
This looks so pretty, we get a large crop of raspberries every year, all gone now but this is going to be top of the list next year.
Ahh thank you! I hope you love it next year! X
Just made the coulis, it’s really thin,
Will it thicken when cool or do I need to make more?
It might thicken a bit once it cools, but it should still work absolutely fine as coulis isn’t massively thick anyway!
Hello, just wondering if this could be frozen?
Thank you 🙂
Yes it can! X
Hi Jane, if I use frozen raspberries, should I use less water?
I love your recipes, the fact that you include the various recipes for the other chocolate options is really helpful.
Thank you for your time.
Maybe only 1tbsp, but you really don’t add too much so it should be fine! And thank you! I know people like different chocolates so always want every one to have something they can enjoy xx
Hi Jane, does it matter what white chocolate I use?
I just use basic white chocolate – or cooking chocolate x
I love trying your recipes and can’t wait to try this one too!
Would the recipe work in individual tart tins and if so, how many would this recipe make? I think my tart cases are 4” rounds
I’m not certain I’m afraid, maybe about 5-6? x
