Our answer

Nigella's Salted Chocolate Tart (from SIMPLY NIGELLA) has a cookie crumb base rather than a regular pastry base. This cookie crumb crust is much easier to make, as well as upping the chocolate factor in the tart.

The recipe specifies Oreo cookies and these are chocolate sandwich cookies with a creme filling. There are many other brands available and you want to look for cookies with a crisp dark chocolate biscuit (wafer) and a creme filling. You can use either the vanilla filled or the chocolate filled cookies but avoid the ones with extra filling (such as Oreo Double Stuf) and the chocolate coated Oreos.
