The other day, I was making chocolates as a gift for someone when I had hazelnut mixture left. As I also made mandarin tarts I decided to make little mini hazelnut tarts. What started as an idea for leftovers became a new item on my dessert treat menu. And it is almost embarrassing how easy it is. The recipe below is without measurements as I don't measure my chocolate ingredients. I do them by 'feel' - just as a guideline, half-half chocolate & hazelnut spread.
You will meed:
- Sweet shortcrust pastry
- Plain chocolate
- Hazelnut spread (Nutella - told you it is easy)
- Amaretto (optional)

In the meantime, melt chocolate over a bain marie (make sure that the water doesn't touch the bowl with the chocolate). Add the hazelnut spread and mix until nicely combined. Remove the bowl with the chocolate and keep stirring until the mixture starts to set again. Pour into the prepared pastry cases and leave to set.
Arrange the mini tarts on a plate and serve
