    Ingredients
    Serves: 12 

    • Base
    • 180g pitted dates
    • 60g walnuts
    • Ganache
    • 375g vegan chocolate chips
    • 1 tablespoon coconut oil

    1. Combine dates and walnuts in the bowl of a food processor and blend until well combined, about 2 minutes. Press about 2 tablespoons of mixture into the bottom of mini tart tins to make 12 bases. Place in the freezer while making ganache.
    2. Place chocolate chips and coconut oil in top of a double boiler over simmering water. Stir frequently, scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching, until chocolate is melted, about 5 minutes. Add melted chocolate to the bowl of the food processor. Add coconut cream and cocoa powder and mix on high until smooth, about 1 minute.
    3. Remove bases from the freezer. Spoon about 1 1/2 teaspoons of ganache on top of each base, spreading to the edges. Add enough to reach halfway up the side of the tart tin. Place tarts back in the freezer until firm, about 10 minutes.
    4. Mash raspberries in a bowl with a fork until they have the consistency of sauce. Spread a layer of mashed raspberries onto the hardened ganache layer, but don't go all the way to the edges. Freeze until sauce is firm and won't collapse when topped with ganache, about 20 minutes.
    5. Remove tarts from freezer. Add the remaining ganache to the top, spreading all the way to the edges. Try to seal in the raspberry sauce as much as possible. Return to the freezer to firm up. Keep tarts in the fridge if you are serving them within 2 hours.

    Tip:

    I usually make the ganache in 2 batches for the 2 layers, so it stays liquid and is easier to spread. The raspberries take a little while to firm up so this seems to work best for me. You can make one big batch of ganache, just know it might be a little harder to spread the top layer.
