Gluten-free chocolate orange Toblerone tart recipe – 100% no-bake and super easy to make using just 6 simple ingredients. The ultimate dessert that even muggles will enjoy!
Gluten-free chocolate orange Toblerone tart, anyone? Yep, in the UK, Toblerone is gluten-free and they recently started selling a chocolate orange Toblerone… so obviously, making this was my next thought!
What if I told you that you could make the ULTIMATE dessert that gluten-free people could only dream of?
And then what if I told you that you only need 6 ingredients to make it AND it doesn’t even involve switching the oven on?
Well, if you told me that, I’d think you were probably a teacher a Hogwarts School of Free From Witchcraft and Gluten-free Wizardry.
(PS. if this school exists, can I please join?)
I’m here to tell you that not only is it possible, but you certainly don’t need to be a wizard in the kitchen to pull it off. And better yet – muggles will love this too!
Why make my gluten-free chocolate orange Toblerone tart recipe?
- This recipe is completely no-bake – no need to turn the oven on or for any gluten-free flour.
- You only need 6 simple ingredients.
- No xanthan gum required.
- No need to make pastry – the base is simply made from crushed biscuits.
- In the UK, Toblerone is gluten-free, including the chocolate orange variation we’re using today.

So what does my gluten-free chocolate orange Toblerone tart taste like?
Firstly, the ‘pastry case’ is actually a biscuit base, adding a lovely crumbly, buttery texture. You wouldn’t believe how well it holds the filling when chilled either.
Then, the filling is a wonderful, creamy mixture, sweet with that unmistakable taste of chocolate orange Toblerone – after all, it’s melted into it!
Lastly, top it with tons of chunky, chopped choc orange Toblerone and finish with a little orange zest. It’s a dessert that absolutely everyone will love – I mean, who doesn’t love chocolate orange?

Gluten-free chocolate orange Toblerone tart recipe: Frequently asked questions
Can I make this recipe gluten-free?
It is gluten-free, though nobody would know just by tasting it – trust me!
Bear in mind that minimising cross-contamination is hugely important if you’re Coeliac or making this for someone who is. Here’s some tips from Coeliac UK on minimising the risk of cross contamination.
Also, make sure that all ingredients used don’t have any gluten-containing ingredients. Then make that that they also don’t have a ‘may contain’ warning for gluten, wheat, rye, barley, oats (which aren’t gf), spelt and khorasan wheat (aka Kamut).
Here’s some more info from Coeliac UK on identifying safe gluten-free products.
Can I make your gluten-free chocolate orange Toblerone tart recipe dairy free?
Most of my recipes are really easy to make dairy free with a few simple swaps. But unfortunately, by the time I adapted everything to be dairy-free, it would basically be an entirely different recipe!
I do have a similar recipe here which is a little easier to adapt to be dairy free – simply look for this frequently asked question over on that post on what products to use instead.
Can I make your gluten-free chocolate orange Toblerone tart recipe vegan?
Again, because of the dairy required in the caramel and the fact that this uses Toblerone, this isn’t an easy one to make vegan.
I do have a similar recipe here which is a little easier to adapt to be vegan – simply look for this frequently asked question over on that post on what products to use instead.
Is your gluten-free chocolate orange Toblerone tart recipe nut free?
Sadly not as chocolate orange Toblerone contains almonds. Feel free to check out my chocolate and salted caramel no-bake tart if you fancy making a nut-free version.
Is your gluten-free chocolate orange Toblerone tart recipe low FODMAP?
Sadly, because of the high dairy content, this recipe isn’t suitable for the elimination phase of the low FODMAP diet.
So this recipe might be best attempted once the elimination phase of the diet is over and you’ve successfully reintroduced lactose/dairy products.
Is Toblerone Orange Twist gluten-free?
Yes, in the UK, Toblerone Orange Twist is gluten-free! But don’t take my word for it (you never know when things might change after all), here’s a link to it so you can check it for yourself.
According to Coeliac UK, if a product has no gluten-containing ingredients and no ‘may contain’ warning for gluten, wheat etc. then that makes it safe for Coeliacs and those on a gluten-free diet.
Where can I find Toblerone Orange Twist?
It’s only available in Tesco at present – you can find it down the confectionary aisle with all the other, larger chocolate bars. Here’s a link so you know what you’re looking for.
Can I make your gluten-free chocolate orange Toblerone tart in a food processor or standing mixer?
You actually don’t need a stand mixer for this recipe at all. But what would really help is a food processor!
I used my food processor to blitz the biscuits into a fine consistency so that it will be nice and easy to shape into my pastry tin.
Can I make your gluten-free chocolate orange Toblerone tart without any kind of electric mixer/appliance at all?
You can, of course, make this without any assistance from any appliance – you just need a little extra elbow grease.
You’ll need to smash up your biscuits into a fine dust so that they’re easily shaped into the pastry tin. To do this will take a lot of bashing!
So just grab a zip-lock bag and a rolling pin and go ham on them until they’re really nice and fine – it is definitely possible.
Then, you’re good to continue making this recipe without any other appliances needed – just a fridge for chilling.
Do I need any special equipment to make your gluten-free chocolate orange Toblerone tart recipe?
You won’t need anything in particular apart from a good 23cm (9 inch) pastry tin with a loose bottom like this one.
I wouldn’t really recommend trying this in a tin without a loose bottom, otherwise it can be very hard to remove from the tin when you want to serve it up.
Using a tin smaller than mine will mean that each slice will be thicker and take longer to set, so bear that in mind! A bigger tin will result in a flatter tart and potentially a thinner base which may not hold the filling as well.
Can I make this recipe without xanthan gum?
There’s no added xanthan gum in this recipe at all.
You’ll see xanthan gum in a lot of my recipes as it’s an essential ingredient in gluten-free baking – in cakes and biscuits, it helps to replace gluten by binding the texture together.
Otherwise you can end up with a very crumbly bake. Fortunately, that doesn’t apply here!
What gluten-free biscuits should I use for the base?
In the photos I used some gluten-free digestive biscuits from Tesco’s free from aisle. However, you can actually use whatever biscuits you fancy! Gluten-free Hob Nobs would work well here too.
Do I need weighing scales to make your gluten-free chocolate orange Toblerone tart?
In short… yes, yes and yes! And I wouldn’t advise attempting any my recipes without them.
A lot of work went into fine tuning ratios and quantities and for me, baking is all about consistency and precision. I want you to make this recipe and for it to turn out EXACTLY like mine did.
I’d recommending using digital cooking scales like these so you know you’re getting an accurate measurement and replicating my recipe as accurately as poss.
Can I make your gluten-free chocolate orange Toblerone tart without sugar or with less sugar?
I can understand the need to reduce sugar in our foods, but this recipe is one where I wouldn’t recommend it.
Personally, I haven’t tried this recipe without adding the icing sugar, so I can’t guarantee the end result will hold and set.
You’re welcome to give it a go, but at your own risk of course!
Can I use granulated sugar or caster sugar instead of icing sugar?
I’ve chosen to use icing sugar in this recipe because it’s nice and light, powdery and almost vanishes into the filling. Other sugars just wouldn’t work the same.
By using other granulated sugars (like caster sugar, brown sugar, coconut sugar etc), you’ll end up with an almost gritty-like texture in your cheesecake filling which is far from good!
That’s because this is a no-bake recipe. That means there’s no heat to break the sugar down and dissolve it, so it’ll just be all grainy in the filling. So yeah, icing sugar is the only way to go!
How long can I keep your gluten-free chocolate orange Toblerone tart for?
Obviously keep this in the fridge at all times – it should last around 4-5 days. Also try to keep it in an airtight container, or covered with clingfilm.
Can I freeze my gluten-free chocolate orange Toblerone tart?
Yep! You can freeze it for up to 2-3 months without a problem – just make sure you put it in an airtight plastic container. It’s probably a good idea to slice it first so you can defrost a slice at a time.
If you want to defrost the whole thing at once, you can leave it at room temperature to thaw for around 12 hours. A single slice will probably take about 2-3 hours to thaw, so get it out ahead of time!
Can I bake my gluten-free chocolate orange Toblerone tart in the oven?
No, please don’t! This is a no-bake tart, meaning that it’s made to be chilled in the fridge and that’s it.
I can guarantee that if you try and bake this in the oven, you’ll just end up with a big mess to clear up ?
Can I print your recipe?
Of course! Just hit the print button located on the recipe below ?? (otherwise you might end up printing this entire post which would probably make your printer go into early retirement)
Gluten-free chocolate orange Toblerone tart recipe: Method
Firstly make your base. In a food processor, blitz your biscuits into a crumb-like texture. If you don’t have a food processor you can bash them with a rolling pin as well! You do want quite a fine consistency for this though.
Pour your melted butter into your crushed biscuits and mix together in a bowl.
Spoon your mixture into a loose bottom fluted tart tin (mine was 23cm across) and then using the back of a spoon and also your hands, press the mixture into the tin – both the base and up the sides. Try to get it as even and flat as you can.
Chill this in the fridge for around 30 minutes – 1 hour. Whilst this is happening you can sort out your filling.
For your filling, melt your chocolate orange Toblerone down. You can do this in the microwave (just check on the chocolate and mix every 20 seconds so it doesn’t burn) or over a bain marie. Once melted put to one side to cool, but don’t let it start to solidify again.
In a medium bowl whisk up your double cream, after you’ve been whisking for about a minute, add in your icing sugar. Continue to whisk until you form soft peaks (not stiff!).
Fold your soft peaks cream into your melted chocolate orange toblerone until combined and smooth.
Pour your mixture into your chilled biscuit case, smooth over and chill in the fridge for a few hours or ideally overnight (its just easier!).
To serve, cover the top in lots of chopped up Toblerone and sprinkle with orange zest. As the chocolate orange toblerone only comes in the bigger size, I cut the triangles down when I add them to the topping.
Slice up and enjoy. Keep refrigerated
