An easy no-bake flourless chocolate cake recipe topped with a layer of salted chocolate shell. Easily make it raw by using raw cacao. Naturally gluten-free and paleo friendly.
*For soaking the dates: soak for a few hours in warm water (or cover with boiling water and soak 15-20 minutes if you don't care for the recipe to remain raw).
**If you don't have a 6" springform pan, feel free to use any small container or dish of a similar size (a tupperware container would work well, or a small pan). Just make sure you line it with some parchment or wax paper first so that it's easier to remove the cake later. Note that the wider the dish, the flatter the cake -- the shape is up to you.
***Storage notes: this cake holds up well at room temperature and will not melt, so refrigeration isn't a must so long as it's not super hot where you are. I just prefer it chilled + it's a bit easier to slice gracefully when cold.
