Chocolate-hazelnut tart with bourbon and honey

My dad loves chocolate like nothing else. Especially when it comes to these huge semi-sweet bars filled with whole and crunchy hazelnuts - he could eat it probably day and night. If  you are a fan of nutty chocolate bars or you know someone who is, this recipe is for you. It also has an amazing gooey, caramel-ish layer and a splash of bourbon to make the flavor even more interesting. 

Ingredients for one 25cm (9inch) round pan:


- 200g (1¼ cup) flour
- 1 tbsp granulated sugar
- 140g (1,5 stick) cold butter, cubed
- 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- pinch of salt


- 3 large free-range eggs
- 180ml (3/4 cup) honey
- 150g light brown sugar
- 40g (4 tbsp) melted butter
- 1,5 tbsp bourbon
- 1 tsp vanilla 
- 1 tbsp flour
- pinch of salt
- 200g (1½ cup) chopped hazelnuts
- 120g (1/2 cup) semi-sweet chocolate chips

1. To make the crust, combine the flour, sugar, vinegar and salt in a large bowl. Add the butter and rub everything with your fingers until it reaches a crumbly consistency. Knead the dough until smooth, shape into a disk, wrap and refrigerate for about 1,5 hour.

2. Roll out the dough and evenly line your dish. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, place a baking tray on the middle oven shelf and preheat the oven to 220C (425F).

3. In a bowl, combine the eggs, honey, sugar, butter, bourbon, vanilla, flour and salt. Whisk until smooth. Stir in the chocolate chips and hazelnuts and pour everything on the chilled crust. Place a pan on a hot tray and immediately reduce the temperature to 180C (350F). Bake for 45-50 minutes.
