Assembly and finishing

Make the tart bases and bake in a fan-assisted oven at 160°C for 16 minutes.
Once the tarts have cooled back down, place around 50g caramelised hazelnuts and 50g caramelised almonds at the bottom of the dish.
Pour 50g of NYANGBO 68% chocolate crémeux over the caramelised nuts then freeze overnight.
Cover with a plastic wrap and store the remaining crémeux in the refrigerator to finish.
The following day, pipe an even layer of the crémeux over the tarts using a 20 Saint Honoré nozzle.
Decorate with a few caramelised nuts and chocolate pieces.
Store in the refrigerator for 4 hours before serving.
