It was one of those days when we were so excited about a dish that we overlooked one small detail! Yes, we decided to bake a chocolate walnut tart but after rolling the dough, we stowed it right into the oven without pricking it with a fork.

What we got was a tasty but puffed-up tart. Who has the heart to waste a chocolaty treat – so we decided to make the most of it by transforming it into a deconstructed dessert!

Well you don’t have to go wrong to make this yummy Chocolate Crumble though. Just make the dough, roll it into a circle, bake it, crumble it, and proceed with this recipe.

Dotted with walnuts, layered with glossy chocolate ganache, and baked to perfection, this dessert is a perfect combo of soft and crunchy textures, which just fuse and melt on your palate!

The interplay of walnuts with chocolate is just too heavenly to describe. So, just go for it!
