HOW TO MAKE VEGAN CHOCOLATE NUT PIE CRUST:

  1. Add the dates to a soup bowl and cover with boiling water to soften, about 5 minutes is good.
  2. While Dates are soaking add the almonds and walnuts to the food processor and process till completely broken down. Drain the dates well and add them to food processor with the rest of pie crust ingredients. Process everything well .You might have to scrape sides of processor once or twice, you should end up with a mealy nutty mixture.
  3. Now spread the nut mixture evenly in your pie plate, and up the sides as well. Start pressing the mixture firmly with your hands, starting on the bottom at the base of the pie plate and the working your way up the sides. This is super easy as there is a generous amount of crust so you’ll have lots to work with.
  4. Chill in fridge till ready to assemble

HOW TO MAKE SALTED CARAMEL SAUCE:

  1. Add coconut milk and maple syrup to a medium sized heavy bottomed sauce pot . Bring the sauce to a boil then reduce heat and simmer for 20-25 minutes, stirring frequently. Scrape down sides of pot a few times.
  2. Remove from heat, stir in rest of caramel ingredients. Let sit on counter till completely cool before pouring into pie crust. Voila! Best Vegan Caramel Sauce! YUM?

HOW TO MAKE VEGAN CHOCOLATE MOUSSE:

  1. Start by breaking up the chocolate bars into a medium sized mixing bowl and set aside.
  2. Next add coconut cream to a sauce pot and heat till just hot and steaming. Remove from heat and add it to the chocolate, add the vanilla and stir till chocolate is melted and its mixed well.
  3. Put the chocolate mousse in the fridge uncovered for 30 minutes. Give the chocolate a stir and return to fridge for another 30 minutes.(60 minutes total) Now remove from fridge, stir the chocolate mousse with a spatula and then beat with an electric hand mixer for 2-3 minutes. The mousse should thicken a little more and hold its shape. If it’s not thickening return to fridge until it firms up, then Spread the mousse onto pie.

Notes

  • quite often I make my caramel sauce the day before and just reheat in microwave till the sauce is pourable.
  • I recommend the Great Value chocolate bars from Walmart, they are perfect for this recipe and the price is right and the quality is great ( made in Switzerland). Gives the mousse the perfect sweetness.
  • If you find the chocolate mousse is ready but the caramel sauce layer is still warm just place mousse in fridge until you’re ready, not to long though, it will start to set. if it gets to stiff just set on counter for awhile till its spreadable.
