What I love most about this recipe is its simplicity. With just four ingredients, it’s almost too easy to whip up, making it perfect for last-minute desserts or when you’re short on time. One of my favorite tweaks is to use a graham cracker crust instead of a traditional pie crust. The slight sweetness and crunch of the graham crackers add a delightful contrast to the smooth chocolate filling. Another variation I enjoy is adding a teaspoon of instant espresso powder to the chocolate mixture. It intensifies the chocolate flavor and adds a subtle coffee undertone that’s absolutely divine.

For those who prefer a dairy-free option, you can easily substitute the chocolate chips with dairy-free chocolate. The coconut milk keeps the tart luxuriously creamy without the need for heavy cream. And if you’re feeling a bit adventurous, try adding a sprinkle of sea salt on top before serving. It adds a wonderful balance to the sweetness of the tart and enhances the overall flavor.

This chocolate tart has become a staple in my dessert repertoire, and I’m sure it will in yours too. It’s a crowd-pleaser that’s perfect for any occasion, whether it’s a family dinner, a holiday celebration, or a simple weeknight treat. Give it a try, and I promise you’ll fall in love with its rich, indulgent flavor as much as I have.

How to Make Chocolate Tart


  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups coconut milk (canned, not reduced fat or lite)
  • 2 cups chocolate chips
  • 1 8-inch pie crust (no bake or baked)


  1. Prepare an 8-inch springform pan with your choice of pie crust, either homemade or store-bought, and set it aside.
  2. Warm up the coconut milk in a small saucepan or microwave-safe bowl. When it’s heated, add the chocolate chips and let them sit for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Whisk the chocolate and coconut milk mixture until smooth and glossy, then mix in the vanilla extract.
  4. Pour the smooth chocolate filling into the prepared pie crust.
  5. Refrigerate the tart for about 2 hours, or until it sets. Optionally, sprinkle sea salt on top before serving.


Can I use a different type of milk instead of coconut milk?

While coconut milk provides a rich and creamy texture, you can use other types of milk, such as almond or cashew milk. However, the consistency and flavor may vary slightly, so full-fat options are preferred for best results.

Do I need to bake the pie crust before adding the filling?

No, you don’t need to bake the pie crust unless you prefer a firmer base. You can use a no-bake crust or pre-baked crust depending on your preference. Both options will work well with the chocolate filling.

How long should I let the tart sit in the refrigerator to set?

The chocolate tart should be refrigerated for about 2 hours or until it firms up. If you’re in a hurry, you can place it in the freezer for a quicker setting time, but be sure to monitor it so it doesn’t freeze completely.

Can I add any toppings to the chocolate tart?

Yes, you can add a variety of toppings to enhance the flavor of your chocolate tart. Popular options include sea salt, fresh berries, whipped cream, or chopped nuts. These toppings can be added just before serving.

What type of chocolate chips should I use?

You can use any type of chocolate chips you prefer, such as semisweet, dark, or even milk chocolate chips. The choice depends on your taste preference, but semisweet or dark chocolate is often recommended for a richer flavor.

How should I store any leftovers?

Leftover chocolate tart should be stored in the refrigerator, covered with plastic wrap or in an airtight container. It will stay fresh for up to 3-4 days. For longer storage, you can freeze individual slices and thaw them in the refrigerator before serving.
