No-Bake Chocolate Espresso Tart is a hassle-free decadent dessert. A rich, chocolate espresso ganache filling is poured into a buttery graham cracker crust and refrigerated. Topped with freshly whipped cream and chocolate covered espresso beans, this tart is show-stopping dessert! Perfect for any holiday or special occasion.


  • 1 3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 5 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 12 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 4 oz unsweetened or bittersweet chocolate
  • 1 tablespoon espresso powder
  • 2 cups heavy cream


  • Whipped cream
  • Chocolate covered espresso beans


  1. Combine the graham cracker crumbs and melted butter together in a medium-sized bowl. Firmly press the mixture into the bottom of a 10 1/4 or 11-inch round tart pan to form the crust. Use the bottom of a measuring cup or a flat glass to help evenly press the mixture in, forming it up the sides as well. Set aside.
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine the heavy cream with the semi-sweet chocolate, bittersweet chocolate and espresso powder over low heat. Slowly melt and whisk to combine until smooth and glossy, being careful to not bring to a boil. The ganache will be thickened, but still runny enough to be able to pour.
  3. Pour the chocolate espresso filling into the prepared tart crust. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours and up to 24 hours in advance.
  4. Garnish with whipped cream and chopped chocolate covered espresso beans before serving. Enjoy!


  • If bittersweet or unsweetened chocolate can’t be found, dark chocolate can be used.
  • This tart does very well in the refrigerator! Can make a couple days in advance and top with whipped cream prior to serving.
