Chocolate-Nut Caramel Tart Recipe

With just a few ingredients and in less time than you'd think, this sinfully rich tart is ready to go. It's a good recipe to have up your sleeve for any gathering. —Kathy Specht, Clinton, Montana
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + chilling YIELD:12 servings


  • 1 sheet refrigerated pie pastry
  • 1 jar (13 ounces) Nutella, divided
  • 20 caramels
  • 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1-3/4 cups chopped macadamia nuts, toasted
  • Whipped cream, optional


  • 1. Preheat oven to 450°. Unroll pastry into a 9-in. fluted tart pan with removable bottom. Press onto bottom and up sides of pan; trim pastry even with edge (discard trimmed pastry or save for another use). Generously prick bottom of crust with a fork. Bake 9-11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely on a wire rack.
  • 2. Reserve 2 tablespoons Nutella for topping; spread remaining Nutella into cooled crust. In a small saucepan, combine caramels and cream; cook over medium-low heat until blended, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; stir in macadamia nuts. Spread evenly over Nutella.
  • 3. In a microwave, heat reserved Nutella until warmed; drizzle over filling. Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm. If desired, serve with whipped cream. Yield: 12 servings.
Editor's Note: To toast nuts, bake in a shallow pan in a 350° oven for 5-10 minutes or cook in a skillet over low heat until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.

"It is rich but delicious."

"This is extremely rich! I could only eat a tiny bite at a time with whipped cream to cut some of the sweetness. I think it would go over better made into small caramel sized bars or mini muffin size. Good flavor mixtures and very easy to prepare! I used a non-removable bottom pan and it came out just fine."
