Rich and decadent no-bake vegan chocolate tart with an oreo cookie crust and a chocolate ganache pecan filling. Easy and insanely delicious!
My brother-in-law officially declared this vegan chocolate tart the best dessert he’s ever eaten! Which is high praise considering he’s quite the foodie too.
And really….this dessert is awesome! It’s pure chocolate blissed out heaven.
Crushed oreos and melted vegan butter form the perfect crumbly, chocolatey base, and chocolate ganache with an ample dose of roasted, salted pecans provide the most beautifully smooth, decadently rich filling.
The salty crunch from the nuts provides the perfect foil for the smoothness and creaminess of the chocolate ganache.
It literally took me 20 minutes to make this vegan chocolate tart from start to finish!
Well…not including the chilling time required for the pie to set, but that’s hands off time anyway. Twenty minutes of super-fun hands-on involvement and this dessert is done. So it’s very easy and very rewarding.

How to Make Vegan Chocolate Tart
You will find full instructions and measurements in the recipe card at the bottom of the post. This is a summary of the process to go along with the process photos.
- To make the oreo base, just add oreo cookies (no need to remove the white filling) to a food processor and process into crumbs.
- Then add melted vegan butter and process it in briefly so that the crumbs are coated.
- Press it down into a pie dish. Place into the freezer to set while you prepare the filling.
- To make the chocolate ganache filling break some vegan chocolate into pieces (or you can use chocolate chips) and add to a mixing bowl.
- Then heat some coconut cream to a simmer and pour over the chocolate.
- Let it sit for a minute and then whisk it with a hand whisk until you have a thick chocolate sauce.
- Add the pecan nuts and fold in.
TIP: Any vegan chocolate will do here, but it’s important that you choose one that you like the taste of. There isn’t any added sugar to the chocolate ganache so if you choose a dark chocolate that is quite bitter and not very sweet, then that’s how your ganache filling will taste. So make sure you like the taste of the vegan chocolate or chocolate chips that you use.
- Pour the chocolate ganache pecan filling over the top of your crushed oreo pie base and smooth it down.
- Then place the tart into the fridge to set for a few hours.
- When it’s completely firm and set, decorate the top with chocolate shavings.
- Slice and serve!
If you use a gluten free vegan sandwich cookie instead of Oreos for the crust then this dessert can definitely be gluten-free.
Yes, it’s perfect to make in advance, because it keeps very well in the fridge for up to a week. It also takes some time to set so if you want to make it the night before you need it and let it set overnight, this is perfect for that.
Storing and Freezing
Keep it covered in the fridge and serve it directly from the fridge. It will stay fresh for 7 days in the fridge.
It’s freezer friendly for up to 3 months. Thaw it in the fridge.

Vegan Chocolate Tart
For the Crust:
- 28 Oreos
- ⅓ cup Vegan Butter (75g) Melted
Chocolate Ganache Filling:
- 2 cups Chopped Vegan Chocolate or Vegan Chocolate Chips (350g)
- 1 ¼ cups Canned Coconut Cream (300ml) Unsweetened
- 1 ½ cups Roasted Salted Pecans (165g)
- Vegan Chocolate Shavings
- Add the oreos to the food processor and process into fine crumbs.
- Add melt vegan butter and process again until all the crumbs are coated.
- Spray a 9-inch round pie dish with non-stick spray and then pat down the oreo crust firmly working it a little up the sides of the dish. Place into the freezer to set while you prepare the filling.
- Add the vegan chocolate pieces or chocolate chips to a bowl. Heat the coconut cream to a simmer (you can do this either in a saucepan on the stove or in the microwave, just keep a careful watch on it if you’re doing it in the microwave so it doesn’t boil, you just want it to reach a simmer) and then pour the hot coconut cream over the top of the chocolate making sure all the chocolate is covered. Let it sit for a minute for the chocolate to melt and then whisk it with a hand whisk until you have smooth chocolate sauce.
- Add the pecan nuts and fold into the chocolate.
- Pour the chocolate ganache filling out over the oreo crust and smooth down evenly. Place into the fridge for a few hours* to set completely.
- This will take at least 4 hours to set properly and may be even longer. So it’s ideal if you can just leave it overnight in the fridge.
- Keep it stored in the fridge and enjoy within 1 week.
