Instructions

For the hazelnut "crust"

  • Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F and prepare your treat cups, tart pans, or muffin liners with non-stick spray. 
  • Pulse the hazelnuts in a food processor until they become a fine flour-like consistency.
  • In a small bowl, combine the melted butter, stevia and the ground hazelnuts, reserving about 1 1/2 tsp of the hazelnuts. 
  • Evenly divide the hazelnut mixture between your tart pans. Press the mixture into the bottom and sides of the pan. If you are using a paper liner, be careful not to smash the accordion folds.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 5-8 minutes until just beginning to brown. Remove from oven and set aside

For the filling:

  • In a small saucepan, over medium heat, bring the heavy cream and butter to a low simmer, stirring frequently. 
  • Stir in the chocolate and stir constantly until it is completely melted.
  • Remove from the heat and whisk in the egg yolk. Continue whisking until the chocolate has a smooth and creamy consistency.
  • Pour into baked crusts, sprinkle with reserved hazelnut flour, and chill in the refrigerator at least 1 hour or until firm 
  • To serve: Carefully remove from the tart pan or liner and enjoy!
