Why we love it: Chocolate mousse tart is a crowd-pleaser and this recipe is made with plant-based ingredients. Sometimes the soft yet thick texture of the mousse is hard to achieve without using cream, however, that's not the case with this recipe.

Make it for: Dessert with a cup of decaf coffee. Save the leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 days.
