Raw Chocolate Tartlets

I’m back home in the UK for June and have some pretty yummy creations up my sleeve! The first are these delicious raw chocolate tartlets, encased by a completely dairy-free shortcrust pastry and an oozing crushed raspberry base … absolute heaven!

I’ve created them for World Environment Day (5th June) which is all about doing what we can to make a positive impact on the planet. I might be a tad late to the party but when it’s about doing something good, I’m not too worried! One of the big pushes is for us all to go dairy-free for one day a month … one day a week … or even just one day. If everyone took part, it would make a big difference to our current situation.

I’ve teamed up with Flora Freedom’s new dairy-free, vegan and vegetarian butter to show that dairy-free is yummy and easy to do!

They were spot on first time and didn’t last long at all in the fridge at home! The dairy-free shortcrust pastry is buttery and flakes apart as you bite into the creamy chocolate centre. The raw chocolate mixture is made of raw cacao powder and all natural ingredients that makes it taste just like the real thing but a guilt-free version!

I know there’s a common misconception that pastry takes forever to make but actually it’s really simple and there’s nothing quite like baking a dessert from scratch.
