Dominic Chapman’s lovely chocolate tart is a simple-to-make dessert that would be a wonderful finish to a meal. The orange zest and chopped hazelnuts are delicious additions to the tart base, as both are fabulous taste partners with chocolate. The trimoline required for this rich chocolate tart recipe is available from specialty food stores, but if you don’t have it on hand, you can substitute it with honey, being aware different honeys can impart different flavours in the filling

For the filling, place the chocolate pistoles in a large mixing bowl. In a pan, heat the trimoline with the cream until hot, being careful not to boil.
