White Chocolate Cranberry Tart

Updated: Jul 28, 2021

For the month of December we are celebrating birthdays for our John L. Scott Bothell and Mukilteo real estate brokers! Our birthday recipe pick this month is this festive white chocolate cranberry tart is so incredibly smooth and creamy, you’re gonna be in heaven. It’s decadent filling is so delicious with no baking required. The perfect dessert to bring to any holiday party.

The cranberries and white chocolate are a perfect combination for this time of year. The cranberry jam is so fresh and fruity with a slight tartness. It works so well with the decadent raw white chocolate filling.

It might look like a lot of work but this tart is deceptively simple and takes less than 30 minutes to prepare. How can you resist that offer?

On top of that this tart is raw, dairy-free, refined sugar-free and gluten-free. It’s crust is made with oats, almonds, coconut oil and maple syrup. The filling is a mix of cashews, coconut milk, vegan white chocolate chips, maple syrup and coconut oil. To make it look more festive way I coated cranberries with maple syrup and granulated monk fruit sweetener. Aren’t they pretty?

In case you were wondering how to prepare these gorgeous looking cranberries…

I’ve Left The Secret For You Here

  • In a medium sized saucepan add water, maple syrup and cranberries. Simmer over low-medium heat for about 10-15 minutes until there is no liquid left and cranberries are fully coated with maple syrup. It will appear very stick, similar to caramel sugar.

  • Transfer onto a cooling rack and let them sit for about 1-2 minutes. Then place them in a bowl or onto a plate filled with either monk fruit sweetener or granulated sugars. Coat them well and transfer back onto a cooling rack. Let them dry until maple has hardened and sugar is stuck to the cranberries.

With a hand mixer puree cranberries and add a little bit of water if sauce is too thick. Add 1 tsp of agar agar powder and simmer for another 5 minutes over low-medium heat. Set aside to cool for a couple minutes, then spread cranberry jam/sauce into the crust (½ way full) and let set in the fridge for another 15 minutes.
