Chocolate Coconut Tart With Chips Ahoy! Cookie Crust. © 2015.

Chocolate, coconut, whipping cream, butter, and Chips Ahoy! Chewy Cookies come together in this simple and sweet tart recipe.

Who knew you could create such a rich and decadent dessert with 5 simple ingredients? In this recipe, Chips Ahoy! Chewy Cookies are processed with shredded coconut and melted butter to form a crust mixture. The mixture is then pressed into a tart pan, and baked briefly to harden the crust. While the crust cools, a chocolate ganache is created by simply pouring boiling whipping cream over chocolate chips, and stirring the mixture 10 minutes later. The chocolate ganache mixture is poured into the cooled crust, and chilled for a few hours until the mixture sets.

Looks great. Tastes great. And it’s oh so simple. I’m loving this coconut + chocolate + Chips Ahoy! recipe.

Note: I used an entire standard-sized package of Chips Ahoy! Chewy Cookies for this recipe (approximately 28 cookies).
