Ingredients

  • 2 cups chocolate cookie crumbs
  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 1/2 cup shaved dark chocolate
Filling:
  • 6 oz good-quality white chocolate finely chopped
  • 3/4 cups whipping cream (35%)
  • 3 tablespoons green creme de menthe

Method

In bowl, combine cookie crumbs with butter. Press evenly over bottom and up side of 9-inch (23 cm) fluted round tart pan with removable bottom. Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven until firm, about 10 minutes. Let cool completely on rack.

Filling: Meanwhile, place white chocolate in large heatproof bowl. In saucepan, bring cream to boil over medium-high heat; pour over chocolate and whisk until smooth. Stir in crème de menthe. Refrigerate until consistency of thin custard, about 2 hours.

In mixer with whisk attachment, whip filling to soft peaks. Scrape into cooled tart shell; smooth top. Refrigerate until set, about 2 hours. (Make-ahead: Cover loosely and refrigerate for up to 2 days.) Garnish with dark chocolate.
