Chocolate-Hazelnut Tart

by simplylife on March 12, 2014

You know those recipes that you save, hoping to make one day, but they’re never quite right for what you’re looking for in the moment?

Yeah, this is one of those.  I saw it in a Food Network Magazine in March 2011 (that’s THREE years ago!), and have been saving it ever since!  Every time I plan on making a homemade dessert, this recipe feels too involved because I’m also preparing dinner or in a time-crunch.


When we recently had friends over just for drinks and dessert, I knew it would be the perfect opportunity to finally attempt my first Chocolate-Hazelnut Tart!

This was decadently delicious!  A small piece will definitely satisfy your sweet tooth, and as long as you allot enough time, the preparation is actually fairly simple!

I won’t be writing the recipe as I followed it nearly exactly from Food Network.  Enjoy!

    I have so many recipes saved that I never have the opportunity to make. I feel like tarts are up there on that list because they’re not something I’d typically make for a family night in. This looks just gorgeous!

    This looks delicious!! I love chocolate-hazelnut – it’s one of my favorite flavor combinations!! I don’t even know what the richest dessert I’ve had lately was. I know I made these rice krispie treats a few months ago that just felt downright sinful. It was a regular rice krispie treat with crushed frosted animal crackers in it and the topped with white chocolate. They were definitely a keeper!

    Chocolate and hazelnut is always a winning combo! This is a beautiful tart 🙂 Glad you finally had the chance to make it!

    This looks awesome! I made a Nutella tart from the Flour cookbook a while ago and it was wonderful. Decadent dessert I enjoyed recently… would have to be the hazelnut torte I had at Island Creek Oyster Bar.

    I’m the same way…I have all these recipes I want to try, but 90% of the time I’m in a rush so it’s on to something quick & easy! The tart looks delish.

  • Joanne (eats well with others)

    I have SO many recipes like that! And now this tart is going to be added to the list…but hopefully I can find a reason to make it ASAP.

  • Amy (Savory Moments)

    I have SO MANY recipes in my “to-make” pile! This tart looks really awesome (worth the wait).
