Oozing with sugary, crunch, caramel, chocolatey goodness, this insanely tasty plant-based pudding has everything you could want from a dessert. It is regularly showcased at events since we’re so proud of it, and it’s got that ‘pick-up-and-go’ factor, so would sit comfortably in a buffet. This is the dish you’ll want to make again and again!
We think this desert is something special, it could make a great plant-based dinner party pudding or maybe...even to be made at Christmas!

Before you start

Preheat oven to 180°C | Line a small baking tray with parchment paper | Medium saucepan | Pestle and mortar

First, prepare the pastry

  • Unroll the pastry on to the lined baking tray, making sure the edges of the pastry fold up the sides of the tray and pressing it into the corners
  • Chill in the freezer for 10 minutes to stop the pastry from shrinking and the sides from collapsing
  • Put the pastry in the hot oven and bake for about 30 minutes, or until golden brown (it will bubble a bit but don’t worry, those bubbles will deflate
  • Take the tray out of the oven

Meanwhile, make the salted caramel

  • Meanwhile, put the saucepan on a medium heat
  • Pour in the coconut cream and stir so that it becomes completely liquid
  • Pour in the sugar and stir continuously for at least 5 minutes, until the mixture thickens and darkens in colour
  • Sprinkle in the salt and stir it into the caramel

Then, prepare the nuts

  • Put the hazelnuts and pecans into a mortar and break them up with the pestle (or put them in a plastic bag and bash them with a rolling pin)
  • Tip the broken nuts into the pan and stir them in so that they’re well covered in the sticky caramel sauce
  • Break the chocolate into the pan and stir until it has melted into the caramel and the nuts are completely covered
  • Take the pan off the heat, stir in the vanilla extract and set aside

Assemble the tart and serve

  • Pour the chocolate caramel into the pastry base and spread it out to the edges
  • Smooth the top with a spatula or smooth knife
  • Put the tart back in the oven for 3 minutes, then take it out and let it cool to room temperature in the tin
  • Put the cooled tart in the fridge for 30 minutes to cool down and firm up
  • Take the tart out of the fridge and carefully remove it from the tin
  • Cut into slices and serve
