You can, but your crust will not be as crisp. The humidity in the fridge makes it soggy.

Normally, as Chef June, said, crusts don't fare so well in the fridge. But this is a nut crust and the filling has to be chilled for a couple of hours anyway, so I think you'll be making it a day ahead. In fact, looking at the ingredients for the filling (I haven't made this recipe), I'm thinking that you could even freeze the tart - something to think about the next time you need a bake-ahead. Happy Thanksgiving -

The chocolate would survive being frozen? So if I were to bake today and freeze, what would be the best method of defrosting? Thank you!!

Cool the tart in the pan. When it reaches room temperature, freeze it just long enough to set it, then wrap it really well. Defrost, sill wrapped, in the refrigerator. I've done this with other ganache tarts and been successful. I'm betting it will work for this tart.

I think this is true - I've never tried freezing a whole one, but I have frozen partial leftover chocolate tarts (not this specific recipe) and it's been fine when defrosted.
