Today you can learn a great recipe and/or you can win a Le Creuset yellow baking dish set. Our giveaway* is sponsored by CSN Stores that has over 200 online stores from wall art and decor to cute cookware. For a chance to win leave me a comment telling me what dish would you bake in your super new yellow baking dish (only title) and subscribe for a double chance to win ! Good luck to all and now, back to the tart-Imagine if you could slice ganache, wouldn't you? Oh yeah ! This is what this recipe reminds me. The filling is very silky and creamy with a coat of shine glaze on top. The hazelnut on the crust is so intense and marvelous that it actually infused my whole house with its aroma, and because the hazelnuts contains its own oils, the crust maintains its moisture even after baked, magical!
The chocolate I used had 55% cacao and I wouldn't recommend more than that , this percentage makes the tart the perfect combination of intense chocolate flavor with a little sweetness that all desserts should have.
Oh, and I love how it looks rustic and fancy at the same time =)
