Death-by-Chocolate Tart

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook/Rest Time: 22 minutes
Chill time: 2 hours
Makes: 12 servings


Creamy chocolate on crisp chocolate makes this tart a chocoholic's fantasy.

1 roll (18 ounces) refrigerated sugar cookie dough
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
2 cups chocolate chips
1/2 cup heavy cream
3/4 cup hot fudge sauce

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Crumble cookie dough into the bowl of a food processor. Add cocoa powder and pulse just until blended.

2. Press cookie dough mixture into the bottom and up the sides of an ungreased 10- to 11-inch tart pan with a removable bottom. Bake for 20 to 22 minutes or until puffed and golden. When cool enough to touch, press down the center of the cookie to form a tart shell. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.

3. Place chocolate chips in a medium bowl. In a small saucepan, heat cream until almost boiling. Pour over chips. Stir until smooth and blended. Stir in fudge sauce. Pour filling into tart shell and refrigerate until set. Serve chilled.
