Chocolate Tart de Créme

Chocolate Tart de Créme | The Mother Cooker

I couldn’t have a gluten free week without a treat could I? This chocolate tart has a subtle sweetness, is nutty and super simple to make. The base is made from nuts and dates, making it completely gluten free and that chocolate, with a sprinkle of salt is just right. You have to be patient though, as it needs to sit in the fridge for 8 hours, so one to make over night. Perfect for a party or a lovely Sunday afternoon.
