To prepare the chocolate and blackberry tarte, start with the cocoa shortcrust pastry. Work the soft butter in the planetary mixer using the K hook, add the icing sugar and the egg; proceed at medium speed until a homogeneous cream is obtained. Add the toasted hazelnuts and finely chopped and 50 g of the flour. Form the pastry dough by mixing the remaining 150 g of flour at low speed, sieved together with the cocoa and a pinch of salt. Put the dough in the fridge with cling film in contact for at least 2 hours.
Roll out the cocoa shortcrust pastry using a rolling pin, on a lightly floured surface, reaching a thickness of 3 mm. Cover with the shortcrust pastry a 22 cm diameter and 4 cm high buttered round mold. Keep the pan in the fridge waiting for the oven to reach a temperature of 160 ° C, bake the base of the tart in ventilated mode, leaving a crack in the oven door open to let the steam escape. Remove from the oven after about 20-25 minutes and let cool before removing the tart from the mold.
Prepare the ganache that will be used to fill the cooked tarte: pour the cream and chopped chocolate into a bowl, place the container in a bain-marie and mix with a spatula until you obtain a shiny and homogeneous emulsion. Pour the chocolate cream into the pastry shell, let it crystallize in the fridge for an hour. Decorate the surface of the tart with extra dark chocolate chips, blackberries and candied citrus fruit. Serve at room temperature.
