    • Transfer the dough to a lightly floured work surface and form a disc shape.
    • Wrap in plastic wrap and cool in the refrigerator for an hour.
    • On a floured surface, roll out the dough to a 3-4 mm thick sheet and set aside the baking pan, making sure to create a right angle between the side and the base, ensuring that the edges remain high.
    • Stab the dough with a fork.
    • Freeze the dough inside the pan for an hour.
    • Set the oven to 170°C / 350°F fan.
    • Place a sheet of heat resistant nylon or crumpled baking paper on the dough and fill with dry beans/chickpeas or special weights for baking. (This is known as “Baking blind" and is the process of baking a pie crust or other pastry without the filling.)
    • Bake blind for 13 minutes.

    • Pour the chocolate batter on the baked dough and keep in the refrigerator for 2 hours for stabilizing.
    • Decorate with coconut flakes, chocolate candies, sprinkles etc.
