Chocolate Ganache Tart
(Makes 6 tarts or 1 pie)
1 cup pecans
1 cup walnuts
1 cup desiccated coconut
I tsp bicarbonate of soda
1/4 tsp sea salt
3 T rice malt syrup
1 T cacao powder
1 can coconut cream
250g 85%-90% dark chocolate, chopped
2 T cacao butter, chopped
1/2 cup rice malt syrup
1 tsp vanilla paste or 1 vanilla bean, seeds scraped
Preheat oven at 170°C / 325°F / Gas Mark 3. Grease tart pans lightly with coconut oil.
To make the crust, place the pecans, walnuts, coconut, bi- carb soda, cacao and salt in your food processor and mix to a fine consistency. Add the rice malt syrup and allow the mixture to form a dough. Remove from the mixer and spread evenly into tart pans. Bake for 10 minutes, then remove to cool while you make the filling.
To make ganache, in a saucepan over low heat, warm the coconut cream, chocolate, cacao butter, rice malt syrup, vanilla paste or seeds, and pod. Stir until the chocolate has melted and you have a smooth ganache. Remove the vanilla pod (if using) Pour the ganache into the cooled tart crusts. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours, until firm. Keep any remaining ganache in the fridge to use later to make the Claytons Tim Tams!
I topped mine with coconut cream and strawberries.
