Hazelnut Caramel and Chocolate Tartlets
Hazelnut Caramel and Chocolate Tartlets
Method

For the tart dough

  • Beat the flour, cocoa powder, salt, sugar and butter in a food processor, until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  • Add the eggs and beat until all of the ingredients come together to form a nice soft dough.
  • When ready, remove the dough and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • Preheat oven to 180* C (350* F) Fan.
  • Roll out the dough on a lightly floured working surface.
  • It should be rolled out in to a thin sheet about 3 mm thick.
  • Use a round cookie cutter to cut out 8 circles that fit individual tart pans.
  • Fit them in to the tart pans and use a fork to pierce the bottom of the dough, making many little holes.
  • Bake for about 20 minutes.
  • When ready, remove from oven and allow them to cool on a wire rack.

For the caramel

  • Coarsely chop the 200 g of hazelnuts and spread in a baking pan that has been lined by parchment paper.
  • Bake for a few minutes, until they become light golden.
  • When ready, remove from oven and set them aside to cool.
  • In a deep pan, add the honey and sugar.
  • Place over low heat and stir continuously with a wooden spoon, until the sugar melts.
  • Stop stirring and allow to boil for about 10 minutes, or until the mixture takes on a nice caramel color.
  • When ready, remove from heat and add the butter.
  • Place back on heat and gradually add the heavy cream.
  • The mixture will bubble vigorously when boiling so it would be good to wear gloves while doing this so you don’t get burned.
  • Stir continuously, until completely combined.
  • Add the finely chopped chocolate couverture and stir.
  • Remove from heat and transfer to another bowl.
  • Add the hazelnuts and stir to combine.
  • Divide the mixture evenly between the tart shells.
  • Top with extra hazelnuts.
