Chocolate Hazelnut Tart

Jump To Recipe

Is anyone else out there as excited about next Thursday as I am?!  BRING. IT. ON!!!  I’m ready to eat myself into a macaroni and cheese stupor.  Speaking of Mac and Cheese, I’m going to post my mom’s recipe for it in a couple days.  Friends, make it!!  It’s seriously the best thing I’ve ever had in my entire life. To keep our mouth watering until the big Mac and Cheese reveal, I have a Chocolate Hazelnut Tart dessert I came up with last year to share with you.

This Chocolate Hazelnut Tart is incredibly rich.  Knock your socks of good, just really rich.  Apparently I’m into heavy desserts here lately.  The little pumpkin pies I posted not long ago will make you pucker too.  This tart is just a bigger version of richness.  As much as I love the standard pecan, apple and pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving, it’s always nice to mix it up.  This Chocolate Hazelnut Tart will move you through Thanksgiving and on into the Christmas season as well.  The chocolate crust is intensified with a tiny kick of coffee, but is balanced out with the sweet, creaminess of the mascarpone layer and then topped off with crunchy toasted hazelnuts and toffee bits.  Drizzle of caramel and chocolate sauce and you see why I say this is will put lead in your pencil.  This makes a big tart, but it serves twice the amount of people you’d think it would because you’ll want to cut the slices into slivers.  That’s about all you’ll be able to handle after a big Thanksgiving meal.  You ‘ll love it though!  It might even become a staple on your holiday table.
