For the crust

  • 200 g gluten-free plain flour
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 125 g coconut oil, melted
  • 4 tbsp maple syrup

For the filling

  • 400 g coconut cream (cream only)
  • 3 tbsp vegan chocolate spread
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

To decorate (optional)

  • coconut cream, whipped
  • fresh cherries
  • cherry puree
  • dairy-free chocolate
  • desiccated coconut


To make the crust

  1. Preheat the oven to 180oC/ Gas Mark 4 and line 6 mini tartlet tins (10cm (4in) with greaseproof paper, or grease with vegan butter.

  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder, coconut oil and maple syrup. Mix and bring together with your hands until a dough forms.

  3. Press the dough into the lined tins, prick the base with a fork and pop into the oven to bake for 9-10 minutes, until golden in colour. Allow to cool fully before filling.

To make the filling

  1. Place the coconut cream into a bowl and add the vegan chocolate spread and vanilla extract. Whip together until combined and light.

  2. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of mixture into each tartlet case and smooth out with the back of a spoon.

  3. Pop the tartlets into the fridge to set. This will take around 3 hours. You can place them into the freezer for an hour. Store in a sealed container in the fridge. These are best eaten within a few days.

To decorate

  1. Add some whipped coconut cream swirls, grated chocolate, desiccated coconut, fresh cherries and cherry purée, if desired.
