Ferrero Rocher & Nutella Chocolate Tart!

IMG_8717

I have always thought that Ferrero Rocher are such a delectable treat – they’re so crunchy, nutty, and chocolatey! Which basically means they are perfection. I have always wanted to make a dessert that involves them as they have always been one of my favourite chocolates, and I figured that a delicious and mousse like chocolate tart would be perfect!

The Nutella layer at the bottom of the tart is a nice surprise to those eating the dessert as you can’t see it from the top, and its so full of flavour! This in addition to the beautifully light and and delicious chocolate tart filling is the perfect combo! I always try and have a little spare mix to:
1) Decorate the tart in a (hopefully) pretty way!
2) Eat with the spatula after finishing decorating…

This is without a doubt one of the most amazing desserts I have made – and its so simple! Its a recipe that can be altered quite easily to suit what people prefer, but if you follow this recipe well, you will have a winner!

I have made this dessert for Christmas Eve dinner, Christmas Day lunch, Birthdays, Mother’s Day, and so many more occasions I can’t even count – it is PERFECT for any occasion!!

I had already put this recipe up last year, but decided what I had originally written didn’t make much sense so this is the new and improved recipe!

Method

For the Pastry
1) Sift the flour, icing sugar, and add the diced butter, egg yolk, and 1tbsp of cold water into a food processor. Blitz quickly on the pulse setting until the mixture starts to bind, it shouldn’t take too long at all!

2) Grease & flour a Tart/Pie/Flan tin – Roll the pastry mix out onto a lightly floured surface to the thickness of 1-2 £1 coin(s). Press the pastry into the tin and trim & neaten the edges. Fill any gaps of the pastry with any excess pastry so its all covered! Refrigerate for 1/2 an hour!

3) Preheat the oven to 200C/180C Fan – Cover the pastry with baking parchment and fill with baking beans/rice and bake the pastry ‘Blind’ for 15 minutes – remove the parchment and the beans and bake for an extra 5 minutes or until the pastry is cooked through and turning golden! Leave to cool in the tin.

4) Leave to cool (keep the pastry in the tin for now as it will keep it sturdy whilst it is being filled.

The Filling
1) Melt the two types of chocolate slowly over a bain-marie or in the microwave in 30 second bursts – giving it a stir each time. Leave this too cool whilst you do the rest.

2) If you have some over-hanging pastry now would be the time to cut it off carefully so that it is even around the edge.

3) Break up the 8 Ferrero Rocher that is going inside the tart, and mix with the 2 tablespoons of Nutella – spread over the base of the tart case.

5) In a separate bowl, pour in the double cream, vanilla seeds and icing sugar – Using an electric whisk (or you can do it buy hand if you’re brave!) whisk until the cream is holding itself and has formed peaks. Be careful not to over whisk it! It is always better to under whisk then over whisk.

7) Once that is done, you can pour in the melted chocolate and fold it together with a spatula until the mix is well combined.

8) Then you can pour this on top of the Nutella mix and spread evenly.

9) Pipe any spare filling you have onto the tart – place the other 8 Ferrero Rocher around the tart!

10) Store in the fridge – and enjoy!

    How much is a splash of milk? Reviewing ingredients to make this ??!

    • Reply Jane's Patisserie March 16, 2015 at 5:56 pm

      As annoying as it sounds, enough to make the dough the right texture! Sometimes it can take none, or quite a bit depending on the flour ☺️ I add the egg, then add a few drops of milk till it gets to the right consistency you normally find it shortcrust pastry!
