Plant Based Gluten Free Chocolate Ganache Tart

Just like it says in the title… a chocolate ganache tart, suitable for those avoiding dairy, eggs and gluten for whatever reasons. It’s for the chocolate lover, the rich, dense, intense chocolate lover!

A no bake tart with simple ingredients, super easy to make and SO DARN SATISFYING!

You can make it in a tart tin in you want a fluted edge, or a cake tin. To make it easier to remove from the tin I’d highly recommend just lining the base with baking paper, lightly greasing with spray oil, and a loose bottom is the key to creating the perfect tart with ease.

I topped mine off with mini dairy free chocolate chips. Nothing fancy, but you can opt for whichever ones you please, or even go down the route of cacao nibs if you want something more intense. Some chocolate coated coffee beans would be a truly epic addition. I also save some of the base and crumbled it over the top before it set.

It sliced with ease and the flavour just got better when it was left to sit in the fridge for a few days.

I would probably leave off the chocolate chips if you’re going to freeze the tart, just because you’ll end up with that tarnished/freezer burn look off the chocolate unless you have some magical solution, but you can never be sure and I’d rather keep it looking pretty.

This would be a divine chocolate highlight for your Easter Sunday meal if you’re doing some chocolate appreciation celebrating. It’s my birthday on Easter Sunday this year, the holiday made for the chocolate lover!!!
