This Black Forest Cherry Chestnut Tart has everything a dessert heart desires. Chocolate, fruit and crunch. It’s insanely easy to make and the PERFECT dessert for the holidays.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Today I have SUCH A GOOD recipe for you.

The preparation of this tart is really easy. However, it does take some time for the cherry layer and the chestnut chocolate cream to set. It is therefore best to make it the day before.

Step 1 – The crust

The crust is baked so that it has a nice crunch when you eat it.

It’s made of rolled oats, spelt flour, grated nuts, coconut oil, maple syrup and cinnamon. These ingredients are mixed in a bowl, pressed into the tart pan and then baked for about 20 minutes.

That easy. That quick.

Step 2 – The cherry layer

When recipe testing, I first finely pureed the cherries and cooked this puree with the cherry juice and some agar agar. However, when I ate it, the consistency was too monotonous for me.

Therefore, I have now left the cherries whole. Much, much better.

The cooked and, pitted cherries are cooked with cherry juice and agar agar and then poured into the crust. That must set in the fridge for about 2 hours.

Step 3 – The chocolate chestnut cream

Mmm, mmmm…

For this cream, oat milk and maple syrup are brought to a boil with agar agar. Then chocolate chips and cocoa butter are added to melt. Finally, the chestnuts are added and everything is finely pureed with a blender.

This cream comes on top of the cherry layer and needs some time to set again for another 4 hours or best overnight.

As you can see, the preparation of this incredibly delicious Black Forest Cherry Chestnut Tart is really easy.

Before serving, you can decorate it any way you like.

I have made some chocolate starts and snow flakes by piping melted chocolate on a non-stick parchment paper.

Burnt almonds also go wonderfully with this.

HAPPY BAKING! 🙂
