Ingredients

For the full recipe and instructions scroll to the bottom of the page for the recipe card.

MINI EGGS

This recipe calls for just a handful of mini eggs to stud the top with. They are the best chocolate chips and pair so well with white chocolate and whipped cream.

WHITE CHOCOLATE

Chocolate ganache is cream and chocolate and you get different outcomes depending on the ratio of cream to chocolate. For this recipe, you want an almost 1:1 ratio. Due to the high chocolate content, I would recommend picking really delicious white chocolate.

SHORTCRUST PASTRY

Shortcrust pastry is the best option for this tart. It makes a strong and sturdy case that can hold the chocolate perfectly as it sets. It’s also easier to slice without the whole tart flaking apart, like it would if it was puff pastry.

How to make white chocolate Easter tart – step by step

  • Preheat the oven to 180ºC / 356ºF / Gas mark 4.
  • Roll out (or unwrap) the pastry. Line the tart tin with the shortcrust pastry. Cut off the excess pastry.
  • Using a fork gently poke the pastry. Add a piece of greaseproof paper / parchment paper to the tart and fill with ceramic baking beans or dried pasta to hold the paper in place and stop the pastry from losing it’s shape in the oven.
  • Bake then remove the paper and baking beans. Place back in the oven for another few minutes until golden brown. Remove and allow to cool.
  • Break up the white chocolate pieces and add them to a bowl and add the 2 teaspoons of butter. (Plus the vanilla if you want to.)
  • In a pan warm up the double cream until it starts to bubble. Do not let it boil! It will take a few minutes. Don’t leave unattended and keep stirring.
  • Pour the cream over the top and slowly mix together until everything is melted and mixed together.
  • Take the tart case and pour the white chocolate mixture in. Place in the fridge and leave until set.

Decorating the white chocolate Easter tart

  • When the tart is set you can start the decorating. Whisk the double cream until stiff. Place it in a piping bag with star nozzle. Pipe the cream on to the tart.
  • Cut the white chocolate on the diagonal to make white chocolate shards. Sprinkle them over the tart and piped cream.
  • Stud the tart with mini eggs and it’s ready to serve.

White Chocolate Easter Tart Top Tips

  • Use a shop bought tart case for ease and to speed up making this chocolate Easter tart.
  • Make sure you take your pastry out the fridge 20 minutes before you intend to start baking. This will make it much easier to work with.
  • Be sure to leave your self some mini eggs, making a white chocolate mini egg tart is hard work an you might need some snacks along the way!

Serving Suggestions

Enjoy fresh with friends and family.

This Easter tart pairs wonderfully with this limoncello and gin cocktail. It is fresh light and the perfect spring dessert drink.

You can also add fresh summer berries to this white chocolate tart. Strawberries and raspberries go so well with white chocolate that chopping a few and decorating the top with them wouldn’t go a miss.

Although this is a white chocolate tart recipe UK there are measurements below for American measurements too.

Easter pastry

I adore pastry and when making something delicious for Easter it has to be an Easter pastry treat. A chocolate Easter tart can be made with a shortcrust pastry base or if you want to make it all no bake you can use a biscuit base too.

Storing / Making ahead of time options

This white chocolate mini egg tart is best eaten on the day of baking. You’ll enjoy it most if fresh, especially with the whipped cream. You do not want your whipped cream to melt so keep it somewhere cool.

If you are travelling with this Easter pastry then I would suggest decorating it when you arrive at your destination. Otherwise, someone might end up with a whipped cream facial!

Transporting tip – the best way to transport the tart is in the tin you made it in.

Substitutions and variations

ROUND TARTS

This Easter pastry tart is equivalent to an 8inch round tart, so if you prefer a more traditional looking tart then use a round tin.

I love the long rectangle shape as it looks lovely placed along the centre of the table after dinner.

Alternatively, if you want something cute and that all the children can be involved in, bake this mini egg tart in a cupcake tin.

White Chocolate Easter Tart FAQS

Can I use shop-bought pastry?

Yes you can use shop-bought pastry for this white chocolate tart!

I used shop-bought short crust pastry for this mini egg tart. It is so much more convenient and reduces the time you are away in the kitchen when you could be with friends and family.

If you want to make your own pastry then I would love to know your go-to recipe in the comments below.

What cream can I use for a chocolate tart?

Double cream is the best cream to use for a chocolate tart.

I use heavy/ double cream to create a light and fluff chocolate layer and I use it on top for the decoration too. It just has a higher fat content so your mini egg tart will be a little heavier and more luxurious.

What is the best white chocolate to use for a white chocolate tart?

There is no best white chocolate to use in a chocolate tart. Just use your favourite! I love Milky Bar for its sweet taste but you could always use more luxury chocolate like the Hotel Chocolat White cholate slab. I often use Supermarket own-brand white eating chocolate.

Not a fan of white chocolate? Then use a rich dark chocolate or sweet milk chocolate. If you are feeling really fancy you could use all 3 and make a triple chocolate mini egg tart.
