Double Chocolate Tart With Chocolate Fudge And Gluten Free Crust

 

Incredible Cocoa Trees

Last year we went on holiday to Indonesia. We enjoyed there so many things: incredible views, beaches, food, culture. We also had many opportunities to see some exotic fruits, we had known only from shops, still growing on trees. One of them was cocoa trees.

We noticed some fascinating about them. The first one was that flowers, and later on fruits, grew directly on trunks and older, big branches. Another, that we could see on the same tree fruits at different stages of growth: starting from flowers, through baby fruits, ending on ready to pick cacao pods.

Since Indonesia is one of the top producers of cocoa and I am a chocoholic myself, I obviously could not miss an opportunity to visit a cocoa/chocolate factory while we were there. We learnt so much about all the steps of producing chocolate. We saw some of the processes, too but unfortunately, we couldn’t take any photos.

 

Double Chocolate Tart with Chocolate Fudge and Gluten Free Crust – Delicious Vegan and Gluten-free Cake not only for Chocolate Fans

So this Double Chocolate Tart with Chocolate Fudge and Gluten Free Crust is kind of a tribute to that incredible experience we had. It is a Double Chocolate Tart as both the crust and the filling contain either chocolate or its main ingredient – cocoa. I made it with healthy ingredients like different types of nuts, it doesn’t include sugar either, just natural sweetener – dates. So make sure you use high-quality peanut butter and dark chocolate not to spoil its healthy character ;). The tart doesn’t contain any flour so people on a gluten-free diet can also enjoy it. Additionally, if you use vegan chocolate, people eating only plant-based food can have it too.

From the below ingredients, you will end up with a small, incredibly delicious Double Chocolate Tart with Chocolate Fudge and Gluten Free Crust. However, don’t be deceived by its size! It is pretty heavy and you will be able to have only a tiny piece of it. This means it can easily feed (and make happy) even 12 people.


Double Chocolate Tart With Chocolate Fudge And Gluten Free Crust

Delicious gluten free and dairy free chocolate tart that will satisfy all chocoholics.
Servings 12 pieces
Prep Time 30 minutes

Ingredients

Gluten-free crust
Chcocolate fudge

Instructions

  3. Put into a food processor cocoa powder, dates and ground almonds; process until the mixture resembles sand.
  4. Add the cashews and process briefly (or pulsate) – you want to have small pieces (1-2mm) not cashew flour.
  5. Transfer the mixture (it will be still loose) to the tin and press it with your hands to create a firm base and a 3-4 cm rind around it.
  6. Put the tin to the fridge.
  7. Process the dates with the coconut cream until you get a smooth mixture; add the peanut butter, vanilla extract and the melted and cooled down chocolate, mix to combine everything.
  8. Spread the chocolate mixture on top of the base, sprinkle with the chopped nuts and chill in the fridge overnight.

Recipe Notes

*Make sure you use vegan chocolate if you want to serve the tart to vegans.
