Chocolate Tart with Hazelnut Crust Final Scene Three Quarter View Cropped

We need to talk. It’s serious.

First off, isn’t this the cutest dessert you ever saw? Eekkkk! I’m a proud mama. Can you tell?

It’s almost too perfect to eat.

That is if I wasn’t a chocoholic. Too bad I am!

This tart isn’t going to last long around here. Between the hubby and myself, it’ll be gone before you know it.

I’ve had my third half of this tart and I can feel the pure, bittersweet chocolate running through my veins! I just wanna scream and shout. And maybe do a little happy dance! Chocolate always deserves a happy dance!

So needless to say, the need for a happy dance doubles when hazelnut has an affair with chocolate!

Chocolate Tart with Hazelnut CrustDon’t be intimidated, this is much easier than it looks! I wouldn’t do that to you. Especially not when chocolate is involved.

Start by tossing the flour, salt, hazelnut meal, a lightly beaten egg, powdered sugar, and butt-ahh (that’s butter to the normal folks) into a large bowl. Using a potato masher or a pastry cutter break the butter down. Stop when the butter is the size of small peas or flaked like oatmeal.

Chocolate Tart with Hazelnut Crust Dough in Tart PanTurn the dough out on a floured surface. Add a little more flour if your dough is sticky. Roll the dough out and divide equally if using mini tart pans, or leave whole for one large tart. If you use mini tart pans, you will yield 5 -6 tarts. Press them into the pan and prick the surface with a fork so they do not rise in the oven. I used these mini tart pans to make the tarts, but you could also use one large tart pan.
