Anything chocolate and anything with nuts is a "must" for my husband! He's the original "cookie monster". This is a dessert you can whip up in minutes, yet is so impressive when served.

How to Make Chocolate Pecan Tart

Step-by-Step

  1. Arrange 1 rack in lower third of oven. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. In a medium sized heavy saucepan combine brown sugar, flour, and salt. Cook on medium heat, stirring well with a whisk. Stir in corn syrup and bring mix to a boil. Cook for 1 minute, stirring occasionally until sugar dissolves.
  3. Remove pan from heat and add butter and chocolate-whisk until smooth. Cool to room temperature, then stir in nuts, vanilla and eggs
