  • Step 1

    Put oven racks in upper and lower thirds of oven and preheat oven to 350°F.

  • Step 2

    Invert bottom of springform pan (so that turned-up edge is underneath for easier removal of tart) and close side of pan onto bottom.

  • Step 3

    Stir together crumbs, butter, and 1/8 teaspoon salt in a bowl, then press onto bottom of a tart pan.

  • Step 4

    Bake crust in lower third of oven 7 minutes, then cool crust on a rack.

  • Step 5

    While crust bakes, toast hazelnuts in a shallow baking pan in upper third of oven, stirring once, until golden, about 6-7 minutes. Transfer to a plate and cool to room temperature.

  • Step 6

    While the crust cools, bring cream to a boil in a 1-quart saucepan, then pour over chocolate in a heatproof bowl, whisking until chocolate is melted and smooth. Whisk in chocolate-hazelnut spread until combined, then whisk in nuts (holding back 2 tablespoons) and the remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt.

  • Step 7

    Pour filling onto cooled crust and sprinkle the remaining hazelnuts over the top. Put the tart in the freezer until just set, about 25 minutes. (Tart should not be frozen.)
