Chocolate & Lime Tart

Chocolate & Lime Tart

Creamy, citrusy and perfect for summer! The rich and velvety chocolate custard is flavoured with our Cornish Sea Salt and Lime Milk Chocolate to give it that punch of citrus flavour. The ginger snap biscuit base brings with it a spiced crunch, which pairs extremely well with the zesty, creamy notes. It's the kind of tart you can't have just one slice of!
