  • 200g plain chocolate, melted
  • 50g plain flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 75g butter, melted
  • 100g golden caster sugar
  • Cocoa, for dusting
  • 375g plain flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 165g cold butter cubed
  • 90ml cold water
  • or 500g shortcrust pastry pack rolled to a thickness of a 20p piece
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 100g chopped hazelnuts
  • 1/2 tsp Cornish Sea Salt


  1. Make the pastry if you are using homemade pastry – Put the flour, salt and the cubes of butter in a large bowl. Use your fingertips to rub the butter into the flour until it resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Using a knife, stir in the cold water to bind the dough together. Wrap the dough in clingfilm and chill for 10-15 minutes before using.
  2. Line a 23cm tart tin with pastry and place in the fridge for 30 minutes to prevent shrinking, and heat the oven to 180C/160C/gas 4.
  3. Bake the pastry blind for 15 minutes, then take the paper out and bake for a further five minutes.
  4. Next, mix ¾ of the melted chocolate with the eggs, butter, sugar, and flour. Pour into the pastry case, then bake for 8-10 minutes until just set. Decorate with remaining chocolate and dust with cocoa.
  5. For the caramel:
  6. Add the sugar to a large non-stick pan on medium heat and cook until the sugar turns to a light, golden caramel. Do not stir, but jiggle the pan now and then.
  7. Once the caramel has formed, stir in the chopped hazelnuts.
  8. Finally, pour the mix onto a silicon mat and leave to cool for an hour. Roughly chop the nutty caramel and sprinkle over the tart to serve. Alternatively, try topping it with Cornish Sea Salt
  9. Enjoy!
