Here's how easy it is...
  1. Blitz the biscuits in a food processor to a fine crumb (or put in a sandwich bag and bash with a rolling pin). Put in a mixing bowl with the cocoa powder.
  2. Melt the butter in a pan (or microwave), then immediately pour it over the biscuit crumbs. Mix well until combined and the chocolate is melted.
  3. Spoon the biscuit mix into the base and up the sides of the tart tin, pressing down evenly to make the base. Chill in the fridge for 10 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile make the filling. In a large mixing bowl, use a balloon whisk to mix most of the lime zest (reserving a little to decorate) and juice with the condensed milk and double cream until you have a smooth, thick mixture.
  5. Remove the tart base from the fridge and spoon in the filling, spreading to the edges and smoothing over the top. Return to the fridge for 1-2 hours until set.
  6. When ready to serve, remove the pie from the tin and place on a serving plate. Sprinkle with the reserved lime zest and a little grated dark chocolate.
