Eggless Ferrero Chocolate Tart

Actually who will say no to Ferrero chocolates, my daughter is a great fan of this chocolates and she loves it a lot. When i told that for our this month Baking Eggless, owned by Gayathri, i'll be making her favourite chocolate as tart, she was very excited and seriously she bugged me to make this tart as quick as possible.Usually i'll finish mostly all the challenges am participating very earlier. But unfortunately this time i was bit busy with some household stuffs and for the long marathon. Finally i prepared these fantabulous tarts last weekend and trust me its our favourite tart now, this tart goes for eggs but since am making these tart for Baking eggless event i prepared them as eggless, personally i didnt missed eggs here. A very buttery crust, very delicious smooth mousse and very nutty chocolatey hazelnut thing makes this tart an incredible dessert .Priya Srinivasan of En Veetu Kitchen  suggested this tart from Trissalicious.Thanks Gayathri and Priya for suggesting us this beautiful tart.

My kids were behind me once i finished these tart and could have enough time to click them properly coz i prepared this tart almost very late in the evening, i clicked some pictures with the tart mould before the day light gets disappears, i'll make these tart again and will put soon some decent pictures definitely. Trust me i reserved a tart for me to click and eat the next day but my hungry H finished my tart late in the nite.The whole cooking and baking process may goes for a long but this tart is definitely worth to try. If you want to make something different,chocolatey and very nutty tart from the usual fruits or chocolate tart,i'll suggest definitelyto try this tart, do give a try friends, am sure you will definitely fallen in love with this beautiful dessert.
