The base of the tart is made with a combination of iron-rich Dates, Oats, and digestive biscuits. It is then set in the refrigerator for a couple of hours. Meanwhile, prepare chocolate ganache and keep it ready. Once the dessert base is set, fill it with chocolate ganache and back in the refrigerator for 2 hours till the chocolate ganache sets firmly. Finally, top it with caramelized pecan nuts and leave it for 1-15 minutes at room temperature.

When it comes to serving dessert, I always prefer making Tarts. It’s my favorite option as it is not only quick to assemble, but you can make it ahead of your party and refrigerate it. The tart base is so versatile that they can be topped with anything you fancy. So next time when you plan for a party, do try this and I am sure your guests will enjoy it.
