Instructions
Base:
  1. In a high speed processor, blitz the walnuts until coarse. Put aside.
  2. In the same processor, add the dates and pulse until starts creating a paste.
  3. Then, add the walnuts, cocoa and coconut and blitz again until you have a homogenous paste.
  4. In a small cupcake tray, add 1 large teaspoon of the paste and using a cup covered in cling wrap, press down until uniform.
  5. Do so, until you finish the mixture and fill the 12 holes.
  6. Set aside.
Filling:
  1. In a double broiler or ~bain marie~ melt the chocolate.
  2. In a medium bowl, pour the contents of the coconut cream and using a whisk, just mix through the cream to make it uniform.
  3. Pour the melted chocolate and mix well.
  4. Back to the tray, add your preferred toppings and then pour the chocolate cream mix in the 12 moulds.
  5. Place in the freezer overnight or for about 4-6 hours.
  6. Once you remove from the freezer, with the help of a butter knife, remove the tarts gently from the sides, it should slide off quite easily.
  7. Serve and enjoy.
  8. P.S.: they will melt quickly, so keep them in the fridge if you want them softer or in freezer if you want them harder.
