Tart Base : 2 1/4 cups (340 g) unbleached all-purpose flour, 120g unsalted butter, 6 tbsp (90 ml) ice water, Salt to taste
Milkmaid Fudge: 400g Nestlé Milkmaid, 450g of sugar (or as per taste), 2/3 cup milk, 3/4 cup (170 g) cold unsalted butter, 1 vanilla pod
Tart Filling: 100g mixed almonds and cashews, 50g sultanas, 300g dark chocolate

Put flour, salt, butter and water in a processor and pulse until the dough forms. Place the dough in cling film and refrigerate.
Roll out until 5 mm thick and cut rectangle shape. Cut some 2 to 3 cm strips to the inside and create a rectangle box. Bake until golden at 170 OC for 10 to 15 minutes.
Pour Nestlé Milkmaid, vanilla pods, sugar (as per taste), milk and butter in a non-stick pan. Gently heat and cook it down at low temperature until it begins to thicken & becomes an oozy fudge, as shown in the video.
Roughly, chop some nuts. Sprinkle in rectangle cavity of tart along with sultanas.
Melt some chocolate buttons in a bowl in microwave or in a non-stick pan on flame.
Pour the milkmaid fudge in our tart base up to 2/3rd of the way. Put melted chocolate on top and spread with a palette knife. After it cools down, place the tart in middle of a plate and garnish with some thinly diced almonds, cashews, flowers and greens.
