Chocolate Hazelnut Grapefruit Tart
For those of us who need a little taste of the city of lights in our own tiny apartments
1 Prepared tart shell (recipe follows)
6 ounces of good bittersweet Chocolate
1/2 cup unsalted butter
2/3 cup of sugar (plus extra for sprinkling)
1 dash of salt
1/2 Tbsp of grapefruit zest
1/2 cup of toasted hazelnuts (rub the skin of after toasting)
Preheat your oven to 325F, while your tart shell chills. Put Chocolate in a small metal mixing bowl. Melt your butter mix in half of your sugar, heat until dissolved. Pour this over your chocolate and stir until smooth. In a larger mixing bowl combine the rest of the sugar, eggs, salt, and zest. Using a mixer beat the mixer until it becomes yellow, fluffy and thick. This should take no longer than a few minutes. Pour a third of the egg mixture into the chocolate, this should lighten the chocolate. Then fold in the rest of the mixture.
Once mixture is folded in and no yellow is left, pour into the tart shell.
Then take your toasted hazelnuts and arrange to your hearts desire. Finally put your tart in the oven for roughly seven minutes, add sugar sprinkled on top nad turn the broiler on high at the last second if you want to have a crisp candied crust on top. Let cool, slice a piece, pour a espresso , close your eyes, and enjoy Paris….
