A slice of spectacular Easter chocolate tart is the ideal way to end a meal. This simple chocolate egg filled dessert is simpler than you might think.



For the base

  • 80g butter , softened
  • 40g golden caster sugar
  • 120g self raising flour

For the filling

  • 75g butter
  • 100g dark chocolate (70% cocoa)
  • 75g golden caster sugar
  • 50g plain flour
  • 4 large eggs , beaten2 x
  • 80g bags of chocolate eggs (we used Galaxy Golden Eggs)
  • crème fraîche , to serve


  1. To make the shortbread base, cream together the butter and sugar until light and creamy, then stir in the flour. Place the dough in the base of a 20-21cm tart tin and chill for 20 minutes to harden.
  2. Preheat the oven to 180°C/160°C fan/gas 4. Prick the base all over with a fork and bake for 15 minutes, or until lightly golden.
  3. Meanwhile, in a saucepan over low heat, melt the butter and chocolate together. After the butter has melted, stir in the sugar and flour, then gradually beat in the eggs. Cover the top with chocolate eggs after pouring the filling over the base. Return to the oven and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the fiilling is just set around the edges but still shiny and a little wobbly in the center. Remove from the oven and place in the refrigerator to cool. Can be made a day ahead of time and stored in the tin overnight. Warm the sides of the tin with a hot dishcloth for a few minutes before removing from the tin. With crème fraîche, serve.
