This Dark Chocolate Ginger Tart features a creamy, no-bake dark chocolate ganache-like filling and a sprinkling of zippy ginger. Plus, it’s vegan and gluten-free so you can have your cake and eat it too!
I developed this INCREDIBLY DELICIOUS Dark Chocolate Ginger Tart for Pure Wow as part of my collaboration with them for their Chef-in-Residence program. To check out all five recipes I created for Pure Wow, check out this article!
As Pure Wow said, it has “a fudge-like consistency and irresistible combination of rich dark chocolate and zingy ginger,” making it “a crowd-pleaser that’s fantastic for any special occasion.”
Because it’s so rich, you really just need a few bites to satisfy even the most intense chocolate cravings. Plus, it’s vegan and gluten-free, so I think that qualifies it as a health food. But don’t quote me on that!
If you’ve never had dark chocolate and ginger together, it’s quite the exquisite combo! And I bring ginger to this tart in three different ways!
First, the crust is a gingersnap crust. Made with oats and pecans, sweetened with maple syrup and molasses, and spiced with cinnamon and of course ginger. Once the crust is baked, it get scattered with pieces of crystallized ginger. I love the unexpected sweet-tangy chewy bite it provides.
Next comes the filling, which is a creamy dark chocolate ganache-like filling mixed with homemade ginger syrup. Once you make the filling, it will be extremely difficult to not drink it by the spoon. It’s outrageously good.
Finally, the topping, which might be my favorite part. It’s a mixture of more crystallized ginger and pistachios, blitzed together in a food processor.
While there are a few steps involved to making this tart, it is (1) still relatively easy to make (only the crust gets baked), and (2) it is sooo worth the effort. It tastes like chocolate heaven but with a sophisticated, elegant spin.
