Strawberry Tart with Chocolate Crumble Crust

This decadent desert is another great recipe from my friends at the Viking Cooking School. It’s a chocolate crumble crust topped with white chocolate cream cheese and sliced strawberries, that is drizzled with even more white chocolate. It’s sinfully good, and super easy to prepare.
