Raw cacao chocolate mousse tart

Lisa Raleigh Raw cacao chocolate tart

I've been making this decadent chocolate mousse tart for over 10 years and I never get tired of it. I'm sure you won't either! 

It has just the right amount of gooeyness and richness to satisfy any sweet tooth, yet it's really healthy, so you can enjoy a slice (or two) guilt free. If you prefer plain chocolate mousse that the kids will love too, try my vegan chocolate mousse, made with Super Scoop, my secret ingredient. 

This tart's filling is perfectly smooth, creamy and sweet. It's best served with a dash of cream or ice cream. Enjoy!
