Kate and her chocolate honey almond tart

Kate and her chocolate tart, originally uploaded by cabanagirl.
Gluten-free. Does this look like her world has been compromised? Not at all. Kate has celiac disease which makes her body very sick if she has gluten in her diet. So we, like many families, have figured out some solutions.
This chocolate tart is really delicious. It is an offtake of Giada de Laurentes' recipe. It is simple: a chocolate cookie and almond crust baked in a springform pan with a honey sweetened ganache filling.
With or without gluten you should try this one:
Chocolate honey almond tart:

Preheat oven to 350deg

chocolate cookies, Pamela's gluten free (or chocolate graham crackers) 5 1/2 oz.
2Tbs almond flour Or almonds
1/2 cup butter, room temp, cut into 1/2 inch squares
3/4 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup honey
12 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips

In a food processor crush and mix chocolate cookies and almonds
Add room temp chunks of butter
Press into buttered springform pan
Bake for 12 minutes
Cool for 20 minutes
Heat cream and honey on stove until honey is melted and mixture is smooth and hot
