Chocolate Ganache Macaroon Tart

Yields12 ServingsPrep Time25 minsCook Time15 minsTotal Time40 mins

This easy to make tart combines two of my favourite flavors, coconut and chocolate. I have made this for many a gathering and it has been a tremendous hit every time with guests begging for the recipe. Make sure you use good quality coconut milk. I like Thai Kitchen brand. If you use a cheap or inferior brand of coconut milk the ganache won't set up right. Don't count on leftovers. Be prepared for this getting devoured in short order!

 2 cups Unsweetened Medium Shred Coconut
  cup Coconut Oil
 ¼ cup Maple Syrup
 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
 2 tsp Arrowroot Powder
Chocolate Ganache Filling
 1 ¼ cups Full Fat Coconut Milk(canned/tinned)
 8 oz Bittersweet, Dark or Semi-Sweet Chocolate chips1 heaping cup
 1 pinch Sea Salt
1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place the base ingredients in a food processor and pulse for several minutes until everything is well incorporated and a dough ball begins to form.

2

Cut a round of parchment paper and place on the bottom of a 8/9 inch glass or metal pie pan. Use your fingers to press the base into the bottom of the pie/tart pan. Make sure it is evenly distributed on the bottom and about three quarters of the way up the sides of the pie pan. Place in the middle of a preheated oven.

3

Bake for 12-15 minutes or until it is light golden brown; Set aside to cool.

4

Place the chocolate chips in a heat proof glass bowl and set aside. In a small saucepan over medium heat, heat the coconut oil and sea salt just until it almost comes to a boil. Remove from heat and pour over the chocolate. Whisk vigerously until all the chocolate is melted and you have a smooth mixture.

5

Allow the ganache to cool a little. Then pour into the coconut base. Tap the pie to make sure there are no air bubbles and that the ganache is evenly distributed. Chill for at least 8 hours in the refrigerator until the filling is firm.

6

Top with dairy free whipped topping(you will find the recipe under "Recipes") and fresh berries, or seasonal fruit such as pomegranate seeds. Enjoy!
