How to Make Cool Chocolate Macadamia Tart


  1. Lightly butter a 9 inch springform pan. Put the crushed cookies and butter in a bowl and mix well. Firmly press mixture into the bottom and sides of the prepared pan.

Put the chocolate, cream cheese, sugar and vanilla in a large bowl and beat with mixer at medium speed until smooth. Stir in macadamia nuts. Beat cream at high speed with mixer until thick.
