Vegan Chocolate Tart

Dazzle your sweetheart with this decadent vegan chocolate and coffee ganache tart.

What You Need:

For the crust:
1/2 cup vegan margarine
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup finely chopped walnuts
1-1/2 cups flour

For the filling:
1 cup chopped bittersweet chocolate
1-1/4 cups coffee
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup slivered almonds (optional)

What You Do:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, cream margarine and sugar with whisk until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and walnuts and mix. Add in flour 1/3 cup at a time and mix until dough sticks together and is slightly moist.
  2. Into a tart pan, press dough with your fingertips. Bake until edges are just barely starting to brown, about 20 minutes. Allow crust to cool completely before filling.
  3. For the filling, in a small pot, melt chocolate until it softens. In another small pot, bring coffee to a boil. Pour coffee over softened chocolate and stir mixture until smooth. Add cornstarch, vanilla, and salt to mixture. Pour filling into cooled crust. Place tart in refrigerator and chill for 6 hours. Decorate top of tart with slivered almonds along edge of crust as desired, then slice and serve.
