What could be wrong with chocolate and nuts??? I tend to find recipes that sound interesting, yet not quite right-it's missing something. So I add my own flavors and touches, and this is my result! Its also quite large so serves lots. Chewy, chocolate, and nutty goodness in each bite

serves Depending on how it's cut, from 8 pieces to lots of slivers!

How To Make chocolate nut tart

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Put a lipped cookie sheet in the oven while oven preheats. You are doing this because the hot cookie sheet will cook the crust of your tart evenly on the bottom. (and catch any drips!). Also, now is a good time to toast whichever nuts you will be using (I prefer pecans, but walnuts or your favorite nut will work. Toasting is important and makes a difference!). Leave cookie sheet in oven until you get to step 3. Put pie crust in tart pan (with removable bottom) .Set aside

    Mix together sugar and flour in large bowl. then add remaining ingredients. Stir well or use your mixer to make sure everything is incorporated
  • 3
    Remove hot cookie sheet from oven. Put tart pan with crust atop the cookie sheet and pour mix into pie crust. Put pie crust/cookie sheet into oven. Bake 1 hr. cool. Refrigerate 1 hr before serving
