Do you all need a delicious no-bake festive dessert to entertain your friends or household this Christmas season?! Effectively right here it’s. This no-bake gingerbread chocolate tart is just spectacular and I’m in love!

No-Bake Tarts

I’ve a factor for no-bake tarts… I’m barely in love with them, and I can’t hold {that a} secret anymore. Actually, I feel I’m obsessed?! However in all honesty, how can I not be?

There’s something a few tart, typically involving chocolate, that is really easy to throw collectively due to it’s no bake nature, after which simply let it set within the fridge for a number of hours and accomplished!

Final yr I did my after eight tart, my biscoff tart is tremendous in style, and so is my easter chocolate tart at Easter time. So, a gingerbread one was a should this yr – AND LOOK AT IT! 

Gingerbread Bakes

Sure I do know.. one other gingerbread bake. In my defence, it’s the primary Christmas gingerbread bake of the yr for me, and I’m shocked it took me this lengthy (All of a few weeks). 

Gingerbread bakes at all times go down so nicely on my weblog, and I simply know you’ll adore this magnificence. My gingerbread fudge is at all times so in style because it’s really easy, together with my gingerbread trifle happening an absolute storm on social media all the time. 

This one has a fairly delicate ‘gingerbreadness’ as a result of all it actually has to point out it off is the ornament. Nonetheless, the bottom is ginger nuts, and the ganache is flavoured with ginger – so it actually packs a punch nonetheless. 

Biscuit Base

So lots of my biscuit bases for my no-bake tarts use oreos or digestives, and while I am keen on this, I wished to suit the theme extra. I used ginger nuts biscuits, identical to in my gingerbread cheesecake in my guide

You should use a candy shortcrust pastry like in my salted caramel chocolate tart, however actually add floor ginger to that as a substitute should you wished a baked base. I’ve tried this myself and it really works tremendous nicely! I take advantage of two teaspoons of floor ginger added into the pastry combine, together with a pinch of cinnamon. 


For the filling, we did but once more observe the identical concept as different bakes. I simply refuse to mess with a ganache when it’s so good! My newest addition to the vary of tarts was my spooky spider internet tart, with a mint inexperienced slime… however this one? Only a caramel. 

I do know I’ve used the caramel earlier than – but it surely compliments the thought of the ginger so nicely. My caramel gingerbread cookie bars are SO scrumptious and in style, that I wished to observe that concept into this bake. You may in fact make your personal do-it-yourself caramel sauce, should you most popular. 

Chocolate Ganache

Additionally, as with the filling, I did observe the identical concepts as earlier than. The ratios of darkish chocolate, milk chocolate, cream and butter simply work SO nicely that I didn’t need to argue with it. It’s so vital to make use of the proper ratios of chocolate, in addition to cocoa content material. 

Each time I take advantage of darkish chocolate, I be certain its 70% plus cocoa content material. Milk chocolate normally varies someplace between 30-35%, so including this to the 70% darkish, it really works wonders. 

It’s additionally so vital to make use of the proper cream, as a result of should you use single cream, you should have a sloppy mess! 


For the ornament, I wished to do one thing a smidge totally different in comparison with my common swirls or ornament across the edges, and simply acquired kind of carried away with a random line drizzle, with sprinkles. You may in fact, as common, do what you need. 

I used these mini gingerbread sprinkles, and these bigger gingerbread sprinkles as a result of they’re tremendous cute. Biscuits work, biscuit crumbs, or no matter you fancy! Simply be sure you have enjoyable making it.
