Millionaire’s Chocolate and Hazelnut Tart
Recipe by Adrian Martin
A delicious take on the classic millionaire shortbread but all in a tart. This pastry is so deliciously short and crumbly like a biscuit almost so make sure it is well chilled before rolling. The filling is just oozing with heavenly chocolate and caramel. For more great recipes check out odlums.ie
For the pastry:
225g of Odlums Cream Plain Flour
75g of icing sugar
150g of butter
1-2tbsp of milk
For the caramel sauce:
A tin of condensed milk caramel
For the chocolate ganache filling:
240ml double cream
100g dark chocolate
100g of hazelnut chocolate spread
A pinch of sea salt
Firstly make the pastry by weighing out the dry ingredients into a large bowl and then rubbing the butter into them until you get like breadcrumb consistency. Add the milk until the dough forms and then clingfilm and leave in the fridge to rest the dough for 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 180oC. Once the pastry has chilled, dust a work surface with a little flour and roll out the pastry to 3mm in thickness and large enough to fit a 20cm diameter, 4cm deep fluted tart tin with a removable base. Line the tin with the pastry and press it into the sides before trimming the edges. As you line the tin, if the pastry crumbles, just patch it together.
Prick the base with a fork all over and line with heatproof cling film or parchment paper, and fill with baking beans, rice or flour. Place the tart in the oven to blind bake for about 10 minutes until the pastry is a light golden brown. Remove the tin from the oven, lift out the cling film and beans/rice/flour and cook for a further five to eight minutes until cooked through and lightly golden. Remove the tin from the oven again and allow it to cool.
Once cooled, spread on the condensed milk caramel sauce and let cool at room temperature to set.
To make the ganache filling, heat the cream on a gentle heat and pour over the dark chocolate and chocolate & hazelnut spread. Allow to cool slightly before pouring over the top of your tart. Sprinkle with some sea salt and allow to cool for an hour before serving and tucking in.
