1. Start off by making the crust; Blend all ingredients together in a food processor.
2. Press crust dough evenly into a spring form pan for best results, a pie pan will also work.
3. Bake at 350 degrees F in a regular oven for about 5 minutes.
4. While crust is baking place all filling ingredients in the food processor (Rinse first).
5. Pour filling batter into the spring form pan and spread out evenly with a spatula or spoon.
6. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees F for 20-30 minutes. Check every 10 minutes by placing a toothpick in the tare, if any of the batter comes out it is not finished.
7. Once finished let sit on the counter for an hour, then in the refrigerator for at least another hour to cool.
8. Decorate and Enjoy
How we decorated:
1. Cut up Pure Goodness Dark Chocolate Clusters
2. Melt Dark chocolate in the microwave in small intervals stirring each time until completely melted
3. Spread over the cooled tarte using a spoon or spreading knife.
4. Place small Cluster chunks around the edges, adding peanuts and hazelnuts in between.
5. Add some shredded coconut.
– Chopped hazelnuts work better for the crust. We used whole hazelnuts which gave more texture.
– The ingredients for the crust make a very thin layer, if you would like it to be thicker simply double the ingredients.
– If using a smaller spring form pan or pie pan the crust and filling will end up being thicker, baking time will have to be adjusted so keep an eye on the tarte.
