Gluten-free Chocolate Fudge Tart

Gluten-free Chocolate Fudge Tart: Jessi's Kitchen

Day 10 of my “Ten Days of Thanksgiving is a Gluten-free Chocolate Fudge Tart. This recipe is actually a little bit nostalgic for me. Growing up my mom always made a fudge pie for the holidays and it was always one of my favorite desserts because it’s basically a giant brownie.

I decided I wanted to recreate my favorite childhood pie to be gluten-free and dairy free and maybe a slightly healthier? I am not sure I would call it healthy but definitely more wholesome ingredients.

The gluten-free crust is made with almond flour and arrowroot to give it a hearty but light texture. It is very similar to the crust in my Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie.

The hero of this dish though is the OH SO perfect fudgy chocolate filling. It seriously has the best flavor and texture. It is like a brownie and traditional Christmas fudge got married and made this tart. Is that a weird thing to say? I only got about 5 hours of sleep the last few nights and am slightly delusional but that is the best way I can think to explain it.

I prefer to make this in a tart pan. I love the presentation of it and I think the crust cooks better and it is just easier to cut. This chocolate tart stores really well in the refrigerator so you can definitely make it ahead of time. You can serve it as is, with whipped cream or even the Vegan Pomegranate and Chocolate Ganache Ice Cream.
