Little black dress? No, I would rather have a red one. A white t-shirt? But pink is so much prettier. Ok, so you get the point, I love color, and you will never find me wearing black and white (with the exception of my chefs coat I wear at work) as I feel like color suits my personality far more. However, there is one exception... black bottom desserts. I once had a black bottom pie as a child and it was amazing. Decadent chocolate at the bottom, and silky creamy custard on top! So heavenly, it left a lasting impact on my taste buds. Sadly though I had never made any kind of black bottom pie or tart myself, until last weekend.
Two 4 inch removable bottom tart pans
2 cups pecans
1/4 cup cocoa Powder
2 Tbsp maple syrup
a pinch of sea salt
