Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup chocolate wafer crumbs
  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 150 g bittersweet chocolate (about 5-1/2 oz), chopped
  • 150 g white chocolate (about 5-1/2 oz), chopped
  • 1/3 cup whipping cream 35%
  • 2 tablespoons prepared espresso

Method

Mix wafer crumbs with butter until moistened; press into bottom and partway up sides of 14- x 4-inch (35 x 10 cm) tart pan with removable bottom. Bake on rimmed baking sheet in 325 F (160 C) oven just until firm, 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool completely.

In heatproof bowl set over saucepan of hot (not boiling) water, heat together bittersweet chocolate, white chocolate, cream and espresso, stirring, until melted and smooth, about 5 minutes. Pour over crust, spreading to edges and smoothing top. Refrigerate until firm, about 2 hours. Slice into bars.
