I LOVE it all!!!  My friend, Elizabeth, had me for lunch and served this Raw Chocolate Tart for dessert and it was to die for!!!  I knew I needed more of that in my life, so I copied the recipe AND had the good fortune of being sent home with a couple of "to-go" pieces!!!  Now that's my kinda hostess with the mostess!!!  I can't wait to pay it forward and re create this lovely melt in your mouth dessert and serve it to the people I love, ... luckily Valentines is about a month away and I now have the perfect recipe to try out on my hubby!!!  ;)
