“Nice memories are like chocolate: you can’t survive on them alone, as they aren’t very filling, but they make life sweeter.” Janine Weger
We only live once, sometimes there’s simply no time to be humble, with this in mind I’m going to share the fact that this simple but remarkably rich chocolate tart, needs to become a dinner party staple. Or on the other hand, this is something you can take to a BBQ, a dessert to make an impact, without being intimidating or complicated.
Despite my first paragraph shouting about the simplicity of this recipe (and all my other recipes whilst we’re at it), I enjoy a challenge. I stepped into the kitchen focused, I was ready, rolling pin hand, to strike the perfect balance between rich, dense chocolate torte, made lovingly vegan and something so good, you’d have no idea it was free from all animal products. Another thing I was going to strike, was oreo’s with my rolling pin, not before I’d taste-tested a few, can we call it market research? Or how about quality control? I don’t know, that sounds almost too formal.
This feels like a glossy dessert, with solid pools of rich dark chocolate, a scattering of sea salt and preferably a side of coconut yogurt. But I wanted to take it from glossy to “Oh my goodness” so I served this with a jug of sickly sweet chocolate sauce, mainly for maximum impact, secondly because with chocolate, more is always more.
Thankfully, this doesn’t call for anything complicated like using your oven and it’ll keep for 3-4 days in the fridge, it would also work well baked into a square tin and served as delectable chunks of chocolate joy. Served only to people that you’re fond of mind, I wouldn’t waste good quality chocolate on just any old passerby.
