Preheat oven to 450°F. Lightly sprinkle Large Round Stone with Handles with flour using Flour/Sugar Shaker. Place one crust in center of baking stone. Lightly spray crust with water using Kitchen Spritzer. Place second crust over first crust, matching edges and pressing down to seal. Using Baker's Roller®, roll out crust to edge of baking stone. Fold 1/2 in. of crust edge in toward center, forming an even border; pinch to form a fluted edge. Prick entire bottom surface of crust with pastry tool. Bake 17-19 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Remove baking stone to Stackable Cooling Rack. Immediately sprinkle 1 cup of the chocolate morsels evenly over crust; set aside.

Whisk filling with Stainless Whisk until thoroughly combined and smooth. Place hazelnuts in Small Micro-Cooker®; microwave; uncovered, on HIGH 1-2 minutes or until lightly browned and fragrant, stirring every 30 seconds. Coarsely chop nuts using Food Chopper; set aside.
To assemble tart, spread melted morsels over crust using Small Spreader; sprinkle with half of the nuts. Spread filling over crust; top with remaining nuts. Place remaining 1/4 cup chocolate morsels in (1-cup) Prep Bowl. Microwave on HIGH 1 minute or until chocolate is melted, stirring every 15 seconds.
