How about this disgustingly delicious Chocolate Oreo Tart disguised as a gruesome & bloody spider web treat eh?! This no bake delight is terrifyingly tasty, easy to make & will blow your Halloween party guests’ minds when they cut into it and reveal a bloody surprise. Have I got your attention? Good!

Here is what you will need to serve 8 – 10.

The Base

  • 245g Oreos
  • 80g Unsalted Butter

The Filling

  • Half a 395g Tin of Caramel
  • Red Food Colouring Gel
  • 175g Dark Chocolate, Finely Chopped
  • 50g Unsalted Butter, Room Temp
  • 165ml Double Cream

To Decorate

  • 50g White Chocolate
  • Plastic Spiders, Optional

Essential Equipment

  • 20cm (8″) Loose Bottomed Tart Tin
  • Food Processor
  • 1 x Disposable Piping bag

Step 1: Making the Base

To make the base, tip the Oreos into the food processor (including the cream filling) and pulse until fine crumbs are formed.

Then gently melt the butter in a small saucepan or in the microwave and pour into the processor with the Oreo crumbs. Pulse a few times until it starts to clump together.

Step 2: Making the Base

Tip the mixture into the tin and press firmly into the base & sides with a metal spoon. Pop into the freezer to firm up whilst we crack on with the filling.

Step 3: For the 'Blood' Caramel

Pour the caramel into a bowl & add a generous amount of red food colouring gel using a cocktail stick. Mix really well. You can keep adding more colour until you reach your desired shade but make sure to do it a little at a time as you can always add more but you can’t take it out!

Step 4: For the 'Blood' Caramel

Pour the ‘blood caramel’ over the chilled Oreo base & spread out evenly. Pop back into the freezer whilst we make the chocolate tart filling.

Step 5: For the Chocolate Ganache

If you haven’t already, finely chop the dark chocolate & cut the butter into small pieces. Place it all into a large glass bowl and set to one side.

Step 6: For the Chocolate Ganache

Then pour the double cream into a small saucepan and gently bring to the boil. (Don’t continue to let it boil – turn the heat off as soon as it starts to boil.)

Pour over the chocolate and leave to stand for 5 minutes.

Step 7: For the Chocolate Ganache

When the 5 minutes are up, give it a really good stir with a spatula. It should turn into a beautifully smooth & silky bowl of chocolate ganache heaven.

Step 8: For the Chocolate Ganache

Pour the chocolate ganache over the ‘blood caramel’ and smooth out with a spatula.

Step 9: For the White Chocolate Spider Web

Working quickly, (as the ganache will start to set pretty fast) break the white chocolate into a bowl and microwave in 10 second intervals. Stir well between each time and keep heating until it’s melted and smooth.

Pour the melted chocolate into the disposable piping bag and snip a small bit off the end. Starting from the middle of the tart working outwards, pipe a spiral of white chocolate.

Step 10: For the White Chocolate Spider Web

Then using a skewer or knife, gently pull lines from the middle to the edge going all the way round the tart. It should end up looking like a spider’s web.

Step 11: Marvel at Your Creation!

And that’s it! Pop it into the fridge to set for at least an hour before serving. Consume within 3-4 days.
