This decadent pie consist of a smooth raspberry-flavored chocolate truffle filling and a dark chocolate almond/pecan crust. The raspberry flavor comes from tossing a sugar free raspberry sauce into the creamy mixture of chocolate and coconut cream. Topped with fresh raspberries and more raspberry sauce, this is truly an indulgence for that special occasion.
The crust is soft and has a sweet nutty, dark chocolate flavor. There is no need to bake this crust and it is made simply by turning dried dates into a creamy, smooth paste and mixing it with raw almonds and pecans and an unprocessed raw cacao powder.
