These tiny tarts feature tender pastry and rich chocolate filling — as good as candy!

  • Portion size 24 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 4 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped hazelnut
Ganache Filling:
  • 4 oz semisweet chocolate chopped
  • 4 oz bittersweet chocolate chopped
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream
  • 2 teaspoons hazelnut liqueur (optional)
  • 12 whole hazelnuts (approx)

Method

In large bowl, beat butter with cheese. Stir in flour and hazelnuts until combined. Place 1 tbsp (15 mL) into each greased mini-muffin cup. Press evenly over bottom and side of each cup. Freeze for 1 hour or until solid. (Make-ahead: Wrap in heavy-duty foil and freeze for up to 2 weeks.) Bake in centre of 325°F (160°C) oven for 30 minutes or until golden. Let cool in pan on rack.

Ganache Filling: Meanwhile, place chocolate in bowl. In small saucepan, bring cream, and liqueur (if using) to boil; pour over chocolate and whisk until smooth. Pour into shells.

Cut each hazelnut in half; place in centre of each tart. Let stand for about 30 minutes or until ganache is firm. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 5 days.)
