1./ Pre-heat the oven to 190 degrees. Grease an 8″ pie dish. To make the pastry place all the ingredients into a food processor and blitz until it comes together.

3./ For the chocolate topping place all the ingredients into a pan over a low heat and let them melt together. When its all melted pour it into a bowl and place into the fridge to cool.
4./ Roll out the pastry between to sheets of clingfilm, and line the pie dish. place in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes( till it is a pale golden). When baked leave to one side to cool.
5./ To assemble the tart pour the date filling into the cook tart shell. Take the chocolate mix out of the fridge and mix with a hand mixer( if its too thick add a little more dairy free cream ) it will end up lovely and mousse. Pour this over the date filling. Serve this with a lovely dairy free cream or ice-cream yum yum!!!!
