Salted Nut Tart Ingredients
4 ounces pretzel twists
1 ½ tablespoons cane sugar
4 tablespoons plant-based butter, melted
1 ½ cups chopped semisweet chocolate
¾ cup regular coconut milk
¾ cup salted mixed nuts
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Place pretzels in a food processor and run until crumbs form.
- Place crumbs in a mixing bowl and mix in sugar and melted butter until thoroughly incorporated. Put crumbs mixture in a 7-inch tart pan, forming the edges of the crust first by pressing into place then press remaining mixture evenly over the bottom of the pan.
- Bake tart crust for 12 minutes. Remove and set aside to cool.
- Heat coconut milk in a small saucepan just to the boiling point and pour over the chopped chocolate, cover. After a few minutes, stir until smooth. Reserve ¼ cup for garnishing and pour remaining into tart shell. Chill filled tart for at least 2 hours before proceeding.
- Sprinkle nuts over the top of the chocolate layer and drizzle with reserved chocolate. Chill for an additional hour before serving. Your salted nut tart is a sure people pleaser.
And that’s a wrap! Make satisfying salty, nutty choco tart the day before you need it and drool until dessert time.
