No Bake Chocolate Covered Cherry Torte

I get ideas a lot. 90% of the time these ideas revolve around food. And these ideas just aren’t rolling around in the back of my head. They literally nag at my brain. I lose sleep over them. I obsess over them. They continue to grow like a cancer in my brain. And the anxiety over the idea continues to build until it is finally released by making it a reality. I have problems. I know.

It is so disappointing when these nagging ideas don’t work out and I am forced to let it go. But this… this torte is not one of those times. This torte is a perfect example of one of these ideas working out exactly how I wanted it to. Or even better. I wanted it to be so incredibly simple to put together you can’t resist making it. And it is. I wanted it to be so rich and fudgy that you only need a tiny piece of it to be satisfied. Success. I am a happy girl. And this idea can now be put to rest with the others leaving room for another to take it’s place.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup pecans
  • 1/2 cup cashews
  • 2 TBSP cocoa powder
  • pinch salt
  • 1 cup tart dried cherries
  • 8-12 pitted medjool dates
  • 2 TBSP almond milk
  • 4 oz dark chocolate (I used 70%)
  • 1 TBSP grapeseed oil

Instructions

  1. In a blender or a food processor, combine pecans, cashews, cocoa powder and salt.
  2. Pulse to a fine crumb.
  3. Add dried cherries, dates, and milk and pulse until the mixture begins to come together, and the dates and cherries are finely chopped (it will still be slightly crumbly, you may have to scrape down the sides several times while pulsing)
  4. Using either an 8 inch tarte pan with a removable bottom or two 4½ inch tarte pans with removable bottoms, put the mixture into the pan and firmly press it all down. (you can also use a pie plate or a square pan)
  5. Slowly melt the chocolate and oil together.
  6. Pour the chocolate over the top of the torte.
  7. Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve, or in the freezer in an airtight container.

  1. You’re super smart.
    And you take absolutely ingeniously gorgeous photos of crazy delicious food that apparently just pops into your very very brilliant mind.

  2. Need. Now.

    I’m really not a big chocolate person, but I happen to absolutely love chocolate covered cherries (I would take the cheapest box of them over expensive truffles for Valentine’s Day anytime!) This looks so decadent!

  3. YUM! This looks fantastic!

  4. Looks absolutely delicious! I would so love to try some. I am sure it tastes amazing.

  5. Yum! Your torte looks awesome! And I love that you used tart cherries, I mostly use sweet cherries but the tart ones are sooo good. And so much more cherry flavored, or maybe that’s just me. Anyways – lovely torte!
