Filled with crunchy nuts and tender chocolate pieces, this tart is so simple and quick to make yet tastes amazing!
If you splurged and bought blanched (pre-skinned) hazelnuts then you are ready to go! But, if you have ones with the skins on you're going to have to remove them, they are extremely bitter. You can bake them a bit and rub the skins off with a towel, but I find that this method does a poor job of getting every little bit of skin off. The best way is boiling them with some baking soda - check out this method: How To Peel Hazelnuts.
