Forget about Ross and Rachel, Johnny and Baby, or Scarlett and Rhett.

If ever there was a couple who belonged together forever, it’s chocolate and nuts.

I’m right, aren’t I?

You can make this no fuss pie with classic chocolate and any nut butter spread combo. Wow everyone you severe with their favorite nut found inside! I used hazelnut, and you can imagine how incredible it tastes, kind of like a Ferrero pie.

Enjoy!

 

INGREDIENTS:

Crust:

1 ½ cups of Almond flour

½ cup of Cacao powder

1/3 cup of Sukrin powdered sweetener

8 Tablespoons of butter, melted

 

Nut Butter Filling:

1 ½ cup of softened butter

1 cup of nut butter of choice (I used Hazelnut)

1 cup of powdered sweetener (I used Sukrin Gold that I blitzed in my spice grinder, but confectioner’s blend will work too)

 

Ganache Topping:

¾ cup of Choc Zero sugar-free dark chocolate chips

6 tablespoons of cream

 

 

METHOD:

Place almond flour, cacao, sweetener and melted butter together in a bowl and mix well.

Spray one large tart pan or pie dish with olive oil spray.

Pour the crust mixture into the pan and press into pan using your fingertips.

I have learned over the years to finish off around the edges using a ¼ cup measure. The edge of the measuring cup helps to create a nice angle to the bottom, if you’re using the tart pan.

Prick all over the base of the tart with a fork and bake for 12-15 minutes until cooked but not scorched.

Remove from oven and cool completely.

Place butter, powdered sweetener and nut butter in the bowl of a mixer and mix on low speed until combined.

Increase speed to medium and beat until smooth and creamy.

Pour into to crust and smooth out.

Place back in freezer while you make your ganache.

Place the chocolate chips in a heat-proof bowl and heat the cream in a pot until just simmering.

Pour the cream over the chocolate and let stand for two minutes.

Stir until chocolate has melted and the ganache is smooth and glossy.

Pour over the nut butter layer and then chill in the fridge until set – approx. 1 ½ hours

 

This pie can be stored in the fridge, covered, for up to one week.
