Raw Chocolate Cashew Tarts

Sinful. Delectable. Delicious. Addictive. These four words will likely come to mind when you taste this simple, 5-ingredient, raw dessert. I tried these at room temperature, refrigerated and frozen and I must say they are best frozen. However, feel free to play around with them. I also made these into smaller servings by using a cupcake and mini-cupcake pan. The mini sizes make for perfectly portioned treats. I highly recommend you sharing these at potlucks or get-togethers. Although, you may need to double the recipe size. Below makes 2 tart sized/6 cupcake sized/12 mini-cupcake sized desserts.

Sweet eating!
