Is anyone in the mood for a chocolate hit? (Actually, is anyone ever not in the mood…?)

These are rich and decadent. And they will surely satisfy any chocolate craving.

* This mixture made enough for 12 chocolate pots in medium sized cup cake papers.
Base:

1 cup raw cashews/macadamias or almonds

1/2 cup hazelnuts

12 pitted medjool dates

1/3 cup cacao

1 T water

Process the nuts until ground in a meal, then add remaining ingredients. Press spoonfuls into little cup cake holders until each has an equal base.

 

Top:

1 pkt silken tofu (non GMO)

100g dark (dairy free) chocolate, melted

1/3 cup cacao

2 T rice syrup

1/2 tsp coffee essence

 

Blend the tofu briefly until a creamy consistency. Add the remaining ingredients and process into a mousse. Spoon the mousse into cups on top of the base evenly, and bake in a 180deg C oven for 20 minutes.

Refridgerate for at least 1 hour before serving. Enjoy 🙂

* This recipe uses coffee essence for a richer flavour. You can sub this for espresso or even just vanilla extract (which at least does not have additives etc). You could also use Franjelico if you do alcohol, which has a hazelnut flavour. The recipe will also make a larger tart if you would prefer this to 12 little ones. I made these for a picnic which worked beautifully to serve them out individually!
