Chocolate & Rum Tart (No Bake)

This is a special recipe. I made this in memory of one of my closest friends, who passed away earlier this year. She was the soul of every group, the most enthusiastic partner, an avid foodie, very well read, always up for adventure, equally game for a lazy getaway and just the nicest human being. I’ve spent years with her and can’t believe she is not around anymore. One of the things she loved and which never changed, was her love for rum & Coke. Especially old monk 🙂 I made her the rum & chocolate cake for her birthday a few years ago and the weekend after she passed I just felt the need to cook something that reminded me of her. While there were manyyy options (we have eaten a lot together :)), I chose to go with this easy no bake tart, so it was no fuss, rum forward and delicious. I know she would have loved it.

Here’s to you, Shaoli!

Believe me, I was not prepared for how much I would like this 🙂
