The stuff dreams are made of – whipped cream.
Whether enjoyed with a scone or dolloped aside dessert or waffles, whipped cream finds its way into some of our favourite desserts. A dairy cream that is whipped by a whisk or a mixer until it’s light and fluffy, whipped cream can be sweetened with sugar or flavoured with vanilla.
Today, we discuss a favourite whipped cream recipe of ours, chocolate coconut tart!
Our recipe was inspired by taste.com.au, and we absolutely love it!
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan-forced. Grease a 3cm-deep, 24cm round loose-based fluted flan tin.
Step 2: Process biscuits to fine crumbs, with the help of a food processor. Then, add butter, and process until both elements are combined. Be sure to press the biscuit mixture over the base, and side of the prepared tin. Place the tin on a shallow baking tray with sides. Refrigerate for approximately 10 minutes.
Step 3: Now separately, combine coconut flakes, coconut, condensed milk, egg and vanilla in a bowl. Mix well. Spoon this new mixture over the biscuit base that you made in step 2. Gently press the two, and once done, bake the mix for 30 minutes or until the top of the filling is golden. Finally, set aside the mixture to cool.
Step 4: Place milk and dark chocolate, and butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on medium-high (75%) for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring halfway through cooking, or until smooth. Pour mixture over coconut filling, gently spreading to level. This step should take about two hours.
Step 5: Line two baking trays with baking paper. Place white chocolate in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high (100%) for 1 minute or until smooth. Thinly spread the chocolate onto 1 prepared tray. Stand for 1 minute. Sprinkle with 1/2 the coconut chips. Repeat the process with the dark chocolate and remaining coconut chips on the remaining prepared tray. Refrigerate both trays for 20 minutes or until the chocolate is hard. Break the chocolate into shards.
Step 6: Transfer tart to a plate. Dollop with whipped cream. Decorate with chocolate shards. Serve immediately.
