No-Bake Chocolate Gingerbread Tart

No-Bake Chocolate Gingerbread Tart

No-Bake Chocolate Gingerbread Tart is perfect for the upcoming holidays or any occasion. It features a no-bake silky and creamy ganache filling on a gingerbread crust. This tart is easy to make, rich, and so delicious. It can be adapted as gluten-free and vegan.

I made this No-Bake Chocolate Gingerbread Tart using ingredients that were sitting inside my pantry about to expire. It is incredible how creative we can get using pantry staples that we already have at home. If you’ve never had chocolate and ginger together I recommend you give it a try. It’s quite a scrumptious combination. It’s like drinking a cozy cup of hot cocoa with delicious gingerbread cookies.

Let’s talk about the crust:

First, let’s talk about the crust. I used a package of Trader Joe’s Cookie Mug gingerbread hangers, unsalted butter, pecans, cinnamon, and ginger. If you want to make this recipe vegan simply use Biscoff cookies or your favorite gingerbread snaps. For gluten-free, you can replace the cookies with gram crackers, nuts, or rolled oats. I baked the crust for 15 minutes but it is totally optional. If you want to make a buttery crust instead of gingerbread check out my Healthy Vegan Pecan Bars

What about the filling?

Secondly, let’s talk about the filling. The filling is a creamy chocolate ganache enhanced with cinnamon. I find that adding a pinch of cinnamon to chocolate elevates the flavors. I used a dairy-free plant-based heavy whipping cream that works great, but you can use coconut milk as well. Once you make the filling, you will be tempted to eat a few spoonfuls. The flavors are AMAZING! For toppings, I used red currants, black chokeberries, and pecans!
