The decadent flavour of this honey-infused pecan pie filling is made even more addictive when topped with chunks of dark chocolate. We've added cocoa powder to the crust for a sinful double dose of chocolate.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup liquid honey
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3 eggs lightly whisked
  • 1 cup pecan halves
  • 1 bar 70% dark chocolate chopped
Pastry:
  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • pinch salt

Method

Pastry: In bowl, beat butter with sugar until fluffy; beat in egg yolk and vanilla. In separate bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt; stir into butter mixture until smooth.

Divide among eight 4-inch (10 cm) mini tart pans with removable bottoms, pressing pastry into bottoms and up sides. Prick bottoms all over with fork. Refrigerate on rimmed baking sheet until chilled, about 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, in saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add brown sugar; cook, whisking, until smooth, about 1 minute. Remove from heat; whisk in honey, vinegar and vanilla. Whisk in eggs.

Divide pecans and chocolate among pastry shells; pour egg mixture over top.

Bake in bottom third of 350 F (180 C) oven until filling is set, 20 to 24 minutes. Let cool completely in pans. (Makeahead: Remove from tart pans; store in airtight container for up to 2 days.)
