Makes: Approx 8 slices
Preparation: 25 minutes
Cooking: 30 minutes
What you will need
For the base
• A tart tin or a foil cooking dish (For an easy way to remove the tart from the container, we used:
• 40g golden caster sugar
• 80g salted butter (remove from fridge to soften prior to cooking)
• 120g self raising flour
For the gooey filling
• 100g dark chocolate (we recommend 70% cocoa)
• 75g salted butter
• 75g golden caster sugar
• 50g plain flour
• 4 large eggs (beaten)
• Golden Galaxy Chocolate eggs (we recommend enough to put into the mixture, and to top after baking- approx 2/3 80g bags)
First, we begin by making the shortbread base. Take your butter and golden caster sugar in a bowl and beat together. If this is too difficult with a spoon/fork, don’t be afraid to use your hands to combine the mixture. Once you have a smooth and creamy consistency, add your flour.
Next, take your mixture and press it into the base of your tart tin/food container, taking care to have an even distribution.
Pop this in the fridge and allow to set for 20 minutes.
With 5 minutes left of your 20 minute wait, set your oven to 180C/160C fan/ gas 4.
When the full 20 minutes has passed, remove your container from the fridge and prick your base all over using a fork.
Put this in the oven for 15 minutes, allowing it to turn lightly golden. Whilst it’s baking, move on to step 3!
Add your dark chocolate and butter to a saucepan, and allow to melt over a low heat (stir continuously to prevent burning).
In a separate bowl, combine your golden caster sugar, flour and melted chocolate mixture. Then, gradually add in your beaten eggs.
Remove the base from the oven, and evenly pour over your filling. Then, it’s time to add the Galaxy Golden Eggs!
Distribute your eggs across the tart, pressing some down into the mixture, and allowing others to stay at the surface. Don’t worry if all of your eggs sink down, your mixture is likely to rise around these anyway when baked, so we will add more later.
Return your tart to the oven for 13 to 15 minutes, until the filling is just set around the edges and the middle still has a shine/a bit of a wobble.
Transfer your tart to the fridge, allowing to cool for one to two hours before eating, so that the filling is completely set.
If your eggs are totally lost to your filling, take your tart out of the fridge 20 minutes into the hour. Take an extra handful of golden eggs, and lightly press these into the surface of your tart. This will give your dessert an extra layer of texture and crunch, and will make it look great!
Return to the fridge and leave to set.
This tart can be made a day ahead of eating and left in the fridge overnight.
We recommend taking it out of the fridge ten minutes before eating, so the gooey centre of the cake can warm up slightly.
Pair with ice cream or crème fraîche for the perfect dessert!
