Chocolate Pecan Tarts

Chocolate Pecan Tarts recipe


  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter (75 grams), room temperature
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 egg yolk , room temperature
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (130 grams)
  • 4 oz (110 g) chocolate of your choice (I used 72% dark chocolate)
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream (125 ml)
  • A handful of Candied Pecans


  1. Whisk together softened butter, sugar, and egg solk. Sift in flour and shape the mixture into a dough
  2. Wrap the dough and chill in the fridge for half hour.
  3. Divide the dough into 8-9 servings and place into tart molds. Poke some holes at the bottom and bake at 350F for around 20 mins.
  4. Remove the tart shells from the mold and let them cool to room temperature
  5. Add some heated heavy cream to chopped chocolate, combine until chocolate has completely melted and the mixture is smooth.
  6. Divide the mixture evenly between the tarts. Decorate with candied Pecans.
  7. Place in the fridge for a minimum of 120 minutes. They will taste even better after chilling overnight in the fridge.
