Raw Chocolate Mousse Tart

Suppose you were on a deserted island and could only bring ONE dessert…it might have to be this one. A dessert like this is perfect to end a dinner: chocolatey, sweet but not too much, melting in the mouth – all the while being free of dairy, gluten, and refined sugar. New Years Eve dessert perhaps?
