No-Bake Chocolate Cherry Tart

  • Author: Katherine
  • Total Time: 4 hours 25 minutes
  • Yield: 6-8 servings 1x


A fluffy, velvety, no-bake chocolate tart filled with fresh cherries and made with a chocolate graham cracker crust. The perfect summer dessert!




  • 10 graham crackers, crushed finely
  • 3 tbsp butter, melted
  • 2 1/2 oz chopped dark chocolate, melted


  • 2 oz chopped dark chocolate
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup whipping cream (measure 1 cup before whipping)
  • 1 cup fresh cherries, pitted and chopped
  • 1 oz dark chocolate, for drizzling (optional)


  1. Using a large Ziploc bag and a rolling pin, crush the graham crackers until fine. Combine the melted chocolate and melted butter together in a large mixing bowl, then add the crushed crackers. Stir until all of the cracker crumbs are moistened, then empty the mixture into a 9″ tart pan and press down until firmly packed. Place the crust in the freezer for 1 hour prior to filling.
  2. Prepare the filling by melting the chocolate and coconut oil together in the microwave, heating in 30 second intervals and stirring in between, until thoroughly melted. Whisk in the maple syrup and cocoa powder until combined. Beat the whipping cream until stiff peaks begin to form, then fold the whipping cream into the chocolate mixture until combined. Gently fold in the chopped cherries, then empty the mixture onto the frozen crust, smoothing it out with a rubber spatula. Place in the freezer for at least 2 hours.
  3. Serve from frozen, or place in the fridge for 1 hour prior to serving. Drizzle with chocolate for added effect.

Leftovers keep in the fridge, in a tightly sealed container for 3-4 days, or in the freezer for up to 3 weeks.
