Chocolate Raspberry Ganache Tart
Prep Time: 30 minutes plus 3-4 hours chilling
Serves: 10-12 People
1 cup dates, pitted weight
1 ⅓ cups oats
⅔ cup hazelnuts (or other nuts)
½ cup cocoa powder
2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
2 ⅓ Divine Dark Chocolate with Raspberries bars
1 cup coconut cream*
*you can either buy a can or carton of pure coconut cream, or chill 1-2 tins of full-fat coconut milk in the fridge overnight and then scoop off the solid cream part and weigh out 1 cup.
Whipped dairy-free cream
Make the base: grease and line the base of a loose-bottomed 8" round baking pan. Soak the dates in boiling water for 10 minutes and then drain. Add the oats and hazelnuts to a food processor and blitz to a fine meal. Now add in the cocoa powder and pulse to combine. Pour in the drained dates, melted coconut oil and salt and pulse to reach a sticky mix that holds together when pressed between your fingers. Pour into the dish and use your hands to make an even base and work your way up the sides of the dish, too.
Fill the base with the raspberries and transfer to the fridge.
Chop the chocolate for the filling very small and add to a heat-proof bowl. Melt the coconut cream in a saucepan until warmed through but do not let it boil. Pour over the chopped chocolate and leave for 5 minutes. Now whisk until smooth.
Pour the ganache mix over the raspberry tart base and smooth over the top. Transfer to the fridge to set for 3-4 hours or overnight.
When ready to serve, remove the tart from the tin, top with the whipped cream, extra raspberries and chopped chocolate and slice with a sharp knife.
Keep leftovers in a sealed container or a covered plate in the fridge for up to 1 week or in the freezer (without the cream topping is best) for 1 month.
