Eating a slice of this decadent dessert is like biting into a smooth truffle candy. You can vary the flavor by using raspberry-flavored chocolate baking chips.—Sally Sibthorpe, Shelby Township, Michigan

  • 20 Oreo cookies, finely crushed (about 2 cups)
  • 3/4 cup softened butter, divided
  • 1 package (10 ounces) mint chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 3 large eggs at room temperature, lightly beaten
  • Chopped dark chocolate, chocolate curls, whipped cream, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Combine cookie crumbs and 1/4 cup butter; press onto bottom and up side of an ungreased 10-in. tart pan. Place tart pan on baking sheet; bake until crust is set, 12-15 minutes.
  2. In a small heavy saucepan, heat cream and remaining butter over medium heat until bubbles form around side of pan. Place chocolate chips, sugar and vanilla in a bowl; pour cream mixture over chocolate and stir until chocolate is melted and sugar has dissolved. Slowly pour a third of the warm chocolate mixture into eggs while stirring continuously; return egg mixture to chocolate and stir until smooth.
  3. Pour into prepared tart shell. Bake until center is just set (mixture will jiggle), 25-30 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack. If desired, top with whipped cream, chopped chocolate and chocolate curls. Refrigerate.
