Chocolate digestive biscuits

250g

Cocoa powder

1tbsp

Butter, melted

85g

finely grated zest and juice of 5 limes

Double cream

300ml

1 small square dark chocolate, grated

You will also need...

23cm (9in) loose-bottomed cake tin or fluted flan tin

Step 1 of 6

Blitz the biscuits in a food processor to a fine crumb (or put in a sandwich bag and bash with a rolling pin). Tip the crumbs into a bowl with the cocoa powder and mix well.

Step 2 of 6

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.

Step 3 of 6

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.

Step 4 of 6

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.

Step 5 of 6

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.

Step 6 of 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious tasting pie I made this for a dinner party and it was so easy, I couldn’t believe it. The taste is lovely and fresh but not too sharp. I will definitely be making this again this weekend, delicious!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very tasty Tasted delicious loved the chocolate biscuit base. Chocolate and lime together are a good combination. Probably didn’t need 5 limes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy and delicious! The hardest part of this recipe is grating zest and juicing the limes ... and waiting for it to set :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank you Nestle carnation I love it!!!!! Been making this for years it's so quick and easy but tastes Devine. You substitute the lime for lemons to make an even tastier one.
