The chocolate walnut tart is fine for the whole family though to make it a treat for the grown-ups add the Bourbon cream and you will soon be singing a new tune of happiness.
Chocolate and walnuts are an amazing combination and this tart recipe is a sure winner for the whole family, or even if you are having a grown-ups night. There are some technicalities to this recipe, it needs a little more attention, though I am sure you are more than capable of pulling it off.
This chocolate walnut tart will be a fitting accompaniment to any dinner party, I think the best idea is to try it out for yourself. If it works use it at your next party, though if it dosnt, then you just need to practice cooking it a few more times.
