Irish Coffee Tart


  • 1¾ cups ground chocolate wafer cookies
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 cups half-and-half
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 3½ ounces semi-sweet chocolate, finely chopped, plus more for decoration
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons Royal Cup espresso or strong coffee (Click here to purchase)
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon whiskey
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  2. Place the ground cookies in a bowl and pour in the melted butter.
  3. Use a fork to stir until the cookie crumbs are evenly coated in butter. Transfer the crumb mixture to a 9-inch tart pan and use the back of a spoon to firmly press the buttered crumbs across the bottom and up the sides of the pan.
  4. Set the tart pan on a baking sheet for easy handling and bake for 10 minutes. Let the cookie crust cool to room temperature.
  5. Meanwhile, warm the half-and-half in a heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium heat. As soon as it bubbles, remove from the heat.
  6. In a large bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, cornstarch, flour, and sugar. While whisking, slowly pour about ½ cup of the warm half-and-half into the egg mixture. Once combined, pour this mixture back into the saucepan.
  7. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly with a spoon or rubber spatula, for 3 - 6 minutes, until thickened. Remove from the heat, and stir in the chocolate, vanilla, espresso, and salt.
  8. Once the crust has cooled, pour in the coffee-chocolate filling.
  9. Lay a sheet of plastic wrap directly onto the filling, and chill the tart in the refrigerator until cool, at least 2 hours.
  10. Just before you're ready to serve the tart, whip the cream. Stir in the whiskey and confectioners' sugar, adding a bit more of either ingredient if you like. Gently spread the whipped cream over the chocolate filling.
  11. Run a vegetable peeler along the long edge of a chocolate bar to make chocolate curls for the top of the tart. Serve chilled.
