No Bake Chocolate Strawberry Tart. Makes a great Valentine's Day celebration treat! It's easy to make and incredibly rich and delicious - perfect for chocolate lovers!
Ingredients
  • 1 cup pitted dried dates (I use THESE)
  • 1 cup nuts of choice (I like walnuts the best!)
  • ⅓ cup cacao powder or unsweetened cocoa powder (I use THIS)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch sea salt
  • 2 (3-ounces each) of your favorite dark chocolate bars (THESE are my fav!) or to switch it up, you can use white chocolate bars, too!
  • ⅓ cup milk of choice (I use THIS coconut milk)
  • 1 cup sliced strawberries
Instructions
  1. Add pitted dates, nuts, cacao powder, vanilla and sea salt to a high powered blender and blend until the mixture is finely chopped and clumped together.
  2. Press the date/nut mixture into the bottom and a little up the sides of a parchment lined 4"x8" loaf pan to form a crust. Set aside.
  3. Meanwhile, break up the dark chocolate bars, add them and your milk in a small pot over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Allow the chocolate to melt until it's completely smooth.
  4. Pour the melted chocolate over the date/nut crust, reserving a bit of chocolate to drizzle over the top of the strawberries, if desired.
  5. Add your sliced strawberries on top of the melted chocolate layer and then drizzle any remaining melted chocolate over the strawberries. Refrigerate for at least 45 minutes, slice and enjoy! :) Store leftovers in fridge.
Notes
The date/nut crust is super easy to mold and form, so you don't even have to use the loaf pan if you don't want to or if you don't have one! You can shape it into whatever shape you want right on the parchment paper. I think a heart or a few small hearts would be really cute! :)
