These are actually freaking unbelievable. It's not too surprising though, because as you're making each component, you'll be blown away by the deliciousness, so when you throw them all together you should expect them to taste as good as they do. You've got a chocolate crust encasing raw vegan chocolate mousse, topped off with sweet lemony cashew cream and cacao powder. Even each ingredient on its own is yummy! How many of us can say that about white flour or baking soda? Have you ever eaten baking soda? What we've got in these tarts are whole foods like dates, avocado, and cashews. Yes-siree, these guys will make your skin glow, teeth gleam, and body sing! The fact that the mousse and cream are already blended up and smooth makes digestion even easier. Seriously, these are GOOD FOR YOU. Share them with your romantic partner(s), friends, family... not your dog though! (Cacao and avocado are apparently quite dangerous for canines to eat. Dang.) You will probably have left over chocolate mousse and cashew cream, so you can either: 1) live with the extras... oh man how troublesome... not. Or 2) make more crust and thus more tarts. Life's toughest decisions, eh?
