Each bite of this pumpkin molasses freezer tart is bursting with delicious flavor, it's basically a pumpkin latte in dessert form! It begins with a chocolatey base spiked with coffee, continues with a soft tahini-date filling sweetened with molasses and vanilla, and is topped with a sweet and spicy pumpkin puree. Garnish this tricolor beauty with some raisins and nuts, set it in the freezer for a few hours, and then enjoy a slice (or two).
