Oh boy! Have I go a treat for you this Valentines Day! I’ve been piecing together this recipe in my head for a few weeks now and just had to share it with you!

It is so blissfully indulgent that you will hardly believe that it is 100% natural when you taste it! The perfect thing to wow your loved ones with this weekend, or if you are still waiting on that special someone – grab a couple of pals and dig in!

  6. Place the base in your fridge until you are ready to add the ganache.
  7. To make the chocolate ganache, place the coconut milk into a small saucepan over a medium-high heat, whisking occasionally until it comes to the boil.

  8. Once it has boiled reduce the heat and bring to a simmer, break in the dark chocolate and whisk until it has fully melted, remove from the heat and stir in the agave.
