Holy smokes, we haven’t had any chocolate in the house this week and I got my crave on yesterday and then this ridiculously amazing idea came to my head. So was born the mini raw chocolate tart filled with chocolate mousse and topped with chocolate and coconut. I used a combination of recipes, the raw chocolate from the bounty bar recipe and the chocolate icing from the not so naughty kids cupcakes I made last week and then a made up version of a raw brownie base.

The result was wham bam thank you Ma’am a mouthful of chocolatey madness. I think these could be up there with the bounty bars for sure!

Brownie base
¼ cup hazelnuts or other
¼ cup cashews or other
¼ cup oats
½ cup dates
2 tsp coconut oil
1 ½ tbsp cacao powder or cocoa
pinch cinnamon

To make the brownie base, blend the nuts and oats together in a high speed blender until they are fine, then add the rest of the ingredients and blend until it has all come together and there are no chunks of dates.

Press the mix into mini cupcake tins so that you make a crust all up the sides and on the bottom that will hold the mousse. Now stick in the freezer to set.

Chocolate mousse
1 very ripe avocados
¼cup dark chocolate, melted
1 tbsp coconut oil, melted
1 heaped tbsp cacao powder or cocoa
¼ cup agave or honey
Drop of vanilla essence

Melt the coconut oil and dark chocolate in the microwave until its runny.Spoon the flesh out of the avocado into a blender along with all the other ingredients until super smooth. (If you want to make a true raw dessert add more cacao and agave instead of the chocolate)

Spoon the mousse into the centre of the brownie cups leaving it smooth on the top and space to pour a layer of chocolate on top. Stick back in the freezer.

Raw chocolate layer
½ cup coconut oil
¼ cup raw cacao powder
1 tbsp agave or honey
pinch sea salt
 

In a bain marie add all the ingredients and melt it all together and stir. When it’s all smooth check the sweetness, it might just taste a bit oily but once it’s set it tastes magical and smooth. Pour on top of the mousse layer so that it covers the top. Sprinkle over some sea salt if you like salty chocolate and some coconut flakes if you fancy. Stick back in the fridge to set.

Enjoy you super chocolatey treats with surprise mousse filling, because I sure just did!
