These are my favorite pecan tarts! I made them before here. They are great to make and store in the freezer until you need em!

Heres the recipe again!

Decadent Mini Pecan Tarts


  • 20-24 Tart Shells – If frozen, take out of the freezer before you begin for about 5-10 mins
  • chopped pecans
  • pecan halves – one for each tart
  • Semi Sweet Chocolate – broken up into small chunks (Bakers secret or any other rich chocolate)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup dark corn syrup
  • 1 Tbsp. light corn syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat the oven to 325º F.
  2. Place tart shells on baking sheet – about 20-24 on a large baking sheet
  3. In the bottom of each tart, add 1 tablespoon (or more) chocolate chunks and 1 tablespoon + chopped pecans, then place a pecan half on top of each.
  4. In a mixing bowl:-whisk together eggs, granulated sugar, brown sugar, corn syrup, and vanilla. Pour the filling over the pecans, just until it almost reaches the top of the sides of the tarts.
  5. Bake for about 40-45 minutes, until the crust is golden, and the middle is set. Remove from the oven and transfer with a lifter to wire racks to cool
