If you’ve never come across a chocolate gingerbread tart, after making this one, you’ll wonder why not. There’s something about the rich cacao that intensifies the zing of the ginger. It’s an exotic combo that feels gloriously adult. Aim for a bit of chocolatey ginger crust with every forkful of cocoa-cashew cream filling for the ultimate swoon-worthy bite. Plus, it’s vegan and gluten-free, so it may just qualify as a health food. Care for another slice, love?
