Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Combine cookie crumbs and 1/4 cup butter; press onto bottom and up sides of an ungreased 9-in. tart pan. Refrigerate 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, pulse chips, sugar and vanilla in a food processor until chips are chopped. In a small heavy saucepan, heat cream and remaining butter over medium heat until bubbles form around sides of pan. Pulse chips again; drizzle cream mixture over chocolate while processing. Whisk a small amount of chocolate mixture into eggs; return all to food processor and process until smooth.
  3. Pour into tart shell. Bake until center is just set (mixture will jiggle), 25-30 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack. If desired, top with fresh raspberries, fresh mint leaves and chopped dark chocolate. Refrigerate. Yield: 16 servings.
Editor's Note: If mint chocolate chips are not available, place 2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips and 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract in a plastic bag; seal and toss to coat. Allow chips to stand for 24-48 hours.
