We’ve used ready-made pastry to make these ganache tarts even more easy. In fact, you might just have everything you need to make these beauties already in your store cupboard – they only need four ingredients!
- 500g (1lb 2oz) dessert pastry
- 300g (10 oz) milk chocolate, finely chopped
- 200ml (1/3pt) double cream
- 50g (2oz) hazelnuts, roughly chopped
Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface to the thickness of a £1 coin. Line 6 x 10cm (4in) fluted loose bottomed tart tins. Transfer to the freezer to chill for 20 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 200C/180C fan/400F/Gas 6. Line the cases with greaseproof paper and baking beans and bake for 15 minutes. Remove the greaseproof & baking beans and cook for another 4-5 mins until golden. Leave to cool.
Pour the cream into a small saucepan and bring to the boil. Remove from the heat and add the chopped chocolate. Leave for 5 minutes to melt then gently fold with a spatula until completely melted and combined. Pour into a jug.
Pour the ganache into each of the tart cases and transfer to the fridge to chill for 3 hours until set.
Bring the tarts to room temperature before serving and scatter with the hazelnuts to serve.
