  • Grease a 7 inch loose-bottomed tart tin with some coconut oil. Cut two 9 inch strips of greaseproof paper and line the tin, one strip over the other. This will make it easier to lift the tart out later.
  • Make the pastry – Roast the nuts in the oven for 2 -3 minutes until very slightly browned. Add all the pastry ingredients into a food processor and process until it starts to come together. Mold the raw pastry into the tart tin, building up a rim slightly above the tin. Place in the freezer for 5 – 10 minutes to set.
  • Make the filling – Roast the cashews in the oven for 2 – 3 minutes until very slightly browned. Melt the Barocco Choco dark chocolate over a bain marie and set aside to cool slightly. Add the rest of the filling ingredients into a food processor and process until thick and creamy. Add the cooled, but melted chocolate into the mixture and process again until combined.
  • Pour the chocolate cream into the pastry case that you prepared earlier and then put the whole tart back into the freezer for 5 – 10 minutes to set. Gently lift out the tart (you may need to loosen the pastry with a knife) and top with berries and a sprinkling of crumbled pistachios.
