To say this tart is decadent and delicious seems a little cliché. How could it not be when you unite rich chocolate ganache with in-season fresh fruits? The addition of ginger gives it that extra zing.
Preheat oven to 350 F (180 C). Lightly oil 9 in (23 cm) tart pan with removable bottom.
In small bowl, soak dates in warm water for 10 minutes to soften. Drain well and place in food processor with remaining crust ingredients. Pulse until blended, scraping down sides of bowl occasionally.
Place in tart pan and evenly press crust in bottom and up the sides. Bake for about 12 to 15 minutes or until crust is firm to the touch. Remove and cool. Refrigerate until completely firm.
Chop chocolate and place in heatproof bowl. In small saucepan, heat coconut milk just until it begins to bubble around the edges. Pour over chocolate and stir until chocolate is melted. Stir in syrup and vanilla.
Sprinkle finely diced ginger evenly over chilled crust. Gently pour chocolate ganache over crust and slightly stir to smooth out. Refrigerate tart for a minimum of 3 hours, preferably overnight, until firm.
To serve, arrange fresh fruit on top. Scatter some extra candied ginger overtop if you wish. Sprinkle with some flaked salt; then cut into wedges and serve. Refrigerate any extra, should there be any!

This cozy winter drink is perfect for sipping by the fireside. Serve it up with our Maple Pecans. It’s soothingly delicious and creamy served hot or cold. Plant milks We’ve suggested oat milk for an ultimate creamy beverage in our recipe. But any plant milk will be equally delicious. Other possibilities include unsweetened soy, almond, rice, and regular dairy milk products. Iced maple milk affogato A true Italian affogato is vanilla gelato or ice cream doused in espresso. In our version we place 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream in a glass and douse it with our hot Dreamy Maple Sipper. Shave some dark chocolate on top and gratings of nutmeg. Serve with a tall spoon. Delicious!
Here’s the perfect recipe for a fireside snack attack. It’s so easy and can be made ahead and stored in a tightly covered container in the fridge or freezer without losing crispness. Delicious served with a hot toddy. Crunchy munchies Switch out pecans for Brazil nuts or walnuts, or even mixed nuts. The trick is to use raw nuts, as opposed to roasted, as these would become too toasted. Try playing with different spices such as cinnamon or curry powder. These are delicious served on crostini that’s been spread with our Creamy Feta Dip.
