No bake easy chocolate, pistachio and orange tart

This tart is so easy to make and doesn’t have any eggs in. It is quite rich tasting but adding pistachio and orange cuts out the richness slightly and gives it another element.

You can also add cocoa powder to the base of the tart if you wanted it to be be chocolately. Also you can add different types of nuts like hazelnuts, almonds or a mixture of a few. This is even better with some hot coffee and thick cream.

Filling
  1. 1. In a medium saucepan heat the 200ml cream on simmer in a heavy bottom pan until bubbles begin to form on the edges. Add the chocolate and butter and use a balloon whisk to blend until the butter & chocolate have melted completely. Add zest of 1 orange and the remaining low fat cream {use about 3/4 first, then the remaining if required; the filling should begin to look thick but still pour able}.
