Ingredients

1 1/2 cups finely crushed chocolate wafer cookies (about 16 cookies)
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 2/3 cups (10-oz. pkg.) 62% Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate Morsels
2 cups heavy whipping cream, divided
2 tablespoons powdered sugar


PREHEAT oven to 325º F.


COMBINE crushed cookies and butter in medium bowl. Press onto bottom and up side of ungreased 9-inch tart pan with removable bottom. Bake for 15 minutes. Cool completely in pan on wire rack.


MICROWAVE morsels and 1 cup cream in medium, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on HIGH (100%) power for 1 minute; STIR. Morsels may retain some of their original shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until smooth. Cool to room temperature.


BEAT remaining cream and powdered sugar in chilled medium mixer bowl until stiff peaks form. Carefully fold whipped cream into chocolate mixture until blended. Spoon into prepared crust; smooth top.


REFRIGERATE for 4 hours or until firm.

Notes

NOTE: For a more sophisticated flavor, add two tablespoons orange-flavored liqueur into chocolate mixture before spooning into crust. Tart slices can also be garnished with whipped cream and fresh berries.
