I think most people either love or hate Valentine’s Day. My single friends really aren’t looking forward to it. Especially a couple who have broken up with their partners in the last year.  My married friends are really quite excited.  I suppose it is a chance to show the person you love, just how much you do actually love them. 😍

Valentine's Day Strawberry Chocolate Tart Gilded Gingerbread


In South Korea, we celebrate Valentine’s Day (14th February), White Day (14th March) and Black Day (14th April). On Valentine’s Day, girls give chocolates to their partners and on White Day, men give candies to theirs. On Black Day, singles and people who didn’t exchange anything go to a Chinese restaurant. Sadly, you have to wear black clothes and eat black noodles! 😢 Happily it is delicious stir fried pork and noodles in black bean sauce. 😋

Valentine's Day Strawberry Chocolate Tart Gilded GingerbreadYes, I have been to a Chinese restaurant on Black Day! When I was in university, about 10 of us went for black noodles on our lunch break. We went there a bit earlier than lunchtime and we all ordered the same thing. We watched customer after customer order black noodles too. How convenient for the chef and the waiters! Nothing to memorize if you only have to make one dish? I am sure some Chinese restaurant owners in Korea invented that day!

You can make this Strawberry Chocolate Tart without using your oven. It is super easy, quick, looks beautiful and tastes rich and decadent. It’s very naughty, but so what? It’s Valentine’s Day!


Valentine's Day Strawberry Chocolate Tart Gilded GingerbreadYou can make this in half the time if you put it in your freezer instead of your fridge to chill. 5 minutes for the base, 20 minutes for the tart.

I made a similar Chocolate Tart for Halloween. I posted 4 recipes for Halloween and this one was the easiest to make and the most popular out of them. I honestly thought the Oreo Cake would be the most popular as it is by far one of the most delicious cakes I have ever eaten. Forget the Halloween decoration and make this cake. Then come back here and let me tell you I told you so. 🤣

Prep time:

Total time: 
Serves: 6-8
What You'll Need
  • 330g Oreo Cookies
  • 140g Unsalted Butter
  • Vegetable Oil for brushing
  • 480ml Double Cream
  • 380g Milk Chocolate
  • 100g Dark Chocolate
  • 400g Strawberries
  • Golden Syrup for brushing

  • Equipment
  • 20cm (8inch) Tart Tin
How to Make It
  1. Grease the tart tin with a little vegetable oil. Cover the bottom of the tin with baking paper.
  2. Put the Oreo cookies in a food processor and whizz them up until you have a fine crumb. If you don’t have a food processor, put the cookies in a large zip bag and crush them with a rolling pin.
  3. Melt the butter in a microwave or small pan and add to the food processor. Whizz everything together until mixed.
  4. Evenly spread the Oreo cookie mixture over the base of a 20cm (8 inch) tart tin. Refrigerate for 10 minutes.
  5. Break the dark chocolate and the milk chocolate into small pieces. Heat a pan over a medium heat, pour in the cream and stir for 1 minute. Add the dark chocolate and the milk chocolate and stir over a low heat until the chocolate has completely melted and the it looks smooth and silky.
  6. Pour the chocolate mixture onto the Oreo base. Put the tart back in the fridge for another 40 - 50 minutes to set the chocolate.
  7. While it’s in the fridge, wash the strawberries and dry them with kitchen towels. Hull the strawberries and set aside the prettiest one. Chop the rest vertically into 4mm slices.
  8. Prick the centre of the tart with a cocktail stick. Starting from the outside, arrange the strawberries on top of the set chocolate in 4 overlapping concentric circles. Arrange them so they are pointing away from the centre. Stand the prettiest strawberry on the centre spot you marked earlier.
  9. Brush the strawberries with a little golden syrup. I coated the brush with a tiny amount of vegetable oil before brushing. It stops the brush getting too sticky with golden syrup. Enjoy!
