Chocolate Mousse Tart

This sugar free chocolate mousse tart is so yummy.   The mousse is silky smooth with just a hint of espresso and just melts in your mouth.

The chocolate base is crunchy and sweet, with the cocoa and coconut combining perfectly with the mousse  It is so good!

If you don’t like or can’t have caffeine, just omit the coffee, it will still taste delicious.

This Chocolate Mousse Tart recipe is very versatile as you can pretty much add any extras you like, such as nuts or berries, coffee liqueur. presentation options are: as one large tart, individual tarts or as a slice.

Serve as is, or for an extra special treat top with whipped cream and The Best Hot Fudge Sauce

Notes – if you are dairy free just sub out the butter in the base for coconut oil and use the Whipped Coconut Cream in place of the cream in the mousse.

Cook time says 2 hours 20 minutes – This also allows for 2 hours setting time in the fridge.
