Mini Chocolate Tarts with a Dulce De Leche Drizzle

Have you ever had a craving for chocolate, but didn't really want to fuss over baking a cake. Well this is the perfect indulgent treat. These Chocolate Tarts are extremely simple to make and a joy to eat I pretty much used what I had in the pantry.

Mini Chocolate Tarts with a Dulce De Leche Drizzle
Makes 4 Mini Tarts


roasted hazelnuts
3 teaspoons of Cajeta or Dulce De Leche

(Base) Ingredients 

10 digestive biscuits crushed
100 grams of melted unsalted butter
2 tablespoons of white sugar
1/4 cup roasted hazelnuts


1. In a bowl, crush the digestive biscuits to a fine crumb. I used a tall glass with a heavy bottom. Add the hazelnuts and crush them lightly.

2. Add the sugar and mix to combine. Melt the butter in a microwave safe bowl and pour it into the biscuit mixture. Stir until it's combined. Take a small amount of the base and pinch it between 2 finger tips. Make sure that it holds it's shape. You may need to add a little bit more butter if it's still crumbly.

3. Distribute the mixture between 4 mini tart tins. Using the back of a teaspoon, Press the base down and up the sides. Set aside in the fridge while you make the ganache.

(Chocolate Ganache) Ingredients

250 grams chocolate melts (I used Milk Chocolate)
5 tablespoons of cream
a pinch of salt

1. Heat the cream in a microwave safe bowl. Put the chocolate in a separate bowl along with the salt.

2. Carefully pour the cream into the chocolate and leave it for a few minutes. Swirl the mixture until all the chocolate has melted and the ganache is smooth and shiny. Pour the ganache into a small jug.

Tart Assembly

Pour an even amount of the ganache into each tart shell. Let this cool slightly and drizzle some Dulce De Leche over and top with some Hazelnuts.

I used a pre made Dulce De Leche called Cajeta. This is actually made from Goats Milk and commonly used in a dessert called ChocoFlan. You can get this from any Mexican Grocer. I got mine from Fireworks Foods.  You can use caramel top and fill or leave it out.

These look awesome, and argh, pre-made dulce de leche would be a very dangerous thing for me to have in my pantry! lol

Looks crazy good, thanks for the recipe! This reminds me of the time I used to experiment a lot in the kitchen, before I got too busy managing a Chinese Restaurant in Capalaba area. You just inspired me to try this on the weekend!

I am constantly looking for new beautiful photos and recipes and when I read the word chocolate ganache, I knew I had to try them for my kids. We all love caramel, especially spread on peanut butter toasts so I knew this would be a hit and the were! :)
