SOOOO tonight I saw Michael Buble in concert let me just say OH MY FREAKING GOSH THAT CONCERT WAS AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!! I literally cried while listening to some of the songs. I have been itching to see him for years but there was always some sort of conflict. This year my sisters and I bought 2 tickets for our parents as their Christmas present. But my mom was sick and my dad wouldn't go without her so my sisters were going to go. But, naturally I wanted to go as well but I had work. Well, I asked around got my shift covered but was not sure if we could get another ticket.
Luckily my sisters best friend works in the box office of this venue and pulled a few strings and viola I had a ticket!!! Naturally, I bought some baked goods to the ticket office as a thank you, it's what us bakers do- thank people with food! LOL
We got our tickets and we had 5th row!!!!! Seriously haven't been this close since I saw the Spice Girls reunion tour a few years ago. I cannot speak highly enough of how Michael Buble interacted with the audience and he also kind of took everyones breath away, what a talented guy!!! If you ever get the chance to go see him, do it, so worth the money. I felt sad that my parents couldn't go because they LOOOVE him as much as we do... guess it looks like more Buble tickets will be bought next time he is in town!! I cannot wait to see him again!!
Anyways this tart, it's boozy!! As in if you don't like the taste of alochol it ain't for you!! This tart was delicious!! I devoured it and also took some to work to share because I am nice like that 😉 Seriously though, Oreo cookie crust, alcohol, chocolate and salted caramel- that is some of the best ingredients ever so it has to be good!!!
I hope you give this Boozy Chocolate Tart a try, perfect for an adult Christmas party!!
Let's get to the recipe!
Three are three components to this recipe, luckily each part is on the easy side. To start you'll need to make the crust, this is the easiest part- only two ingredients; crushed Oreo cookies and melted butter. It's simple and delicious and the perfect crunch against the creamy chocolate filing.
For the chocolate custard like filling you will need:
- Guinness Stout. This delicious ingredient pairs beautifully with chocolate. Keep in mind you are going to reduce the Guinness into a more concentrated liquid by cooking it on the stove for 20-30 minutes depending on your pot size. You'll want to reduce it by half.
- Whole Milk. It's important you use whole milk to achieve the creamy, thick custard texture.
- Heavy Whipping Cream. Just like you gotta use whole milk, you gotta use heavy whipping cream here too.
- Dorda Double Chocolate Liqueur. I love this stuff, in a martini it is fabulous!! So why not bake with it, gives great flavor!
- Brown Sugar. Only a little is needed.
- Unsweetened Cocoa Powder. To ensure you get a good punch of chocolate flavor adding a little cocoa powder goes a long way. I prefer to use Dutch-process cocoa but you can use natural cocoa in this recipe too.
- Cornstarch. This is what thickens the custard. Make sure to really whisk it into all the liquid before cooking.
- Good Quality Dark chocolate. One final chocolate punch is added to the filling by mixing in some chopped chocolate. I prefer to use Callebaut chocolate callest but you can use your favorite dark chocolate bar and finely chop it.
- Pure Vanilla Extract. Vanilla pairs beautifully with chocolate, it's that one last something special in this recipe!
The topping for the tart is an alcohol infused whipped cream.
- Heavy Whipping Cream. In order for your cream to whip up nicely make sure that your cream has been heavily chilled and that the bowl and whisk you use are chilled too.
- Dorda Double Chocolate Liqueur. Just adding this gives the whipped cream a delightful flavor.
- Confectioners Sugar. This not only sweetens the whipped cream but also stabilizes it a bit. Make sure to sift your powdered sugar to avoid any lumps.
Now to top the tart you can go two ways. A generous drizzle of salted caramel OR a shaving of good quality chocolate. I love them both ways.
Preheat oven to 350F/180C and grease a 9-inch tart pan with a removable bottom.
Combine crushed Oreos and melted butter.
Press into the tart pan and bake for 8 minutes.
Remove and let cool on a wire rack as preparing the filling.
In a medium saucepan whisk together the reduced Guinness, milk, cream, Dorda Liqueur, brown sugar, cocoa powder, and cornstarch.
Whisk until fully combined then place over medium-low heat.
Bring to a boil then let simmer whisking constantly for 2-3 minutes.
Remove saucepan from heat and whisk in the chopped chocolate and vanilla. Whisk until smooth.
Pour on top of Oreo crust. Place a piece of plastic wrap directly on top of the filling to prevent skin from forming.
Chill for 3 hours to set the chocolate filling.
In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a whisk attachment or large bowl with a handheld whisk combine heavy whipping cream, Dorda Liqueur, and powdered sugar until stiff peaks form.
Spread on top of the chilled tart and use a Microplane zester to grate chocolate on top or drizzle with salted caramel sauce. Store in the fridge for up to three days.
