Chocolate Crust

Sift flour and cocoa powder together; set aside. In a food processor, cream butter, salt and sugar. Add the egg and powders in 2 times. Mix until combined and chill for a couple of hours (can be made in advance). Flour countertop, work out half of the pastry – make it supple but still cool, and roll dough out into a 3mm (0.12”) disk and lightly prick. Make a 8” (21cm) greased round pan, tart ring or make individual if desired. This recipe can handle 3 tart shells. The dough can be stored a week in the refrigerator or kept frozen for up to 6 months. Better leave the tart shell to rest overnight in the refrigerator to dry out; uncovered. Blend bake tart shell for 20 minutes at 350ºF/180ºC. Remove pie weights and bake for 10 min more; cool.

Nut-Chocolate Crunch

*To make Gianduja from scratch, look up at Crunchy Chocolate Candy Recipe. Blend all ingredients together. Pour over the nut-chocolate crunch and leave to set in a cool area or refrigerator. Make another layer of ganache if desired using a smaller in diameter ring lined with acetate or parchment; freeze to harden and unmold. Top the tart with and thaw completely before slicing the tart.

Cocoa Nibs Tuile

Mix 10g sugar with pectin; set aside. Heat up a small pan and make a light brown caramel a sec (dry caramel) with remaining sugar. Stir in butter and add the sugar-pectin or lemon juice and cocoa nibs. Spread hot mixture evenly inside a pastry ring (same size as the top ganache). Bake at 400ºF/200ºC for 10 min max. Remove tart ring and cut into 8 triangles while still warm. Let cool. Slice tart and top each with a cocoa nibs tuile. Enjoy!
