Heat the cream and butter in a saucepan until the butter melts and the cream begins to simmer. Pour the hot liquid over the chocolate and stir until the mixture is smooth and the chocolate is melted. Pour the glaze over the top of the tart shell and sprinkle with the chopped hazelnuts. Refrigerate again to set the chocolate.
