Time 50m

Yield 12

Number Of Ingredients 9

12 (3 inch) unbaked tart shells
4 (1 ounce) squares unsweetened baking chocolate (such as Baker's®), divided
¾ cup lightly packed brown sugar
¼ cup corn syrup
1 egg
2 tablespoons butter, softened
1 teaspoon white vinegar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 pinch salt


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Place tart shells on a baking sheet.
  • Chop 3 ounces of the chocolate into small pieces; sprinkle evenly into the bottom of each tart shell.
  • Whisk brown sugar, corn syrup, egg, butter, vinegar, vanilla, and salt together in a bowl; fill tart shells with sugar mixture 3/4 full.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until filling expands and is bubbly and pastry is lightly golden, about 12 minutes. Remove from the oven to cool.
  • Melt the remaining chocolate in a microwave-safe glass or ceramic bowl in 30-second intervals, stirring after each melting, about 1 minute (depending on your microwave). Drizzle chocolate over cooled tarts.

These tarts were a disappointment. The filling was too runny and the chocolate flavor was weak. I wouldn't recommend them.

These tarts were a bit too sweet for my taste, but they were still good. The filling was smooth and creamy, and the chocolate flavor was nice. I might try making them again with less sugar next time.

These tarts were delicious! The chocolate filling was rich and decadent, and the pastry was flaky and buttery. I would definitely make them again.

I've made these tarts several times now and they're always a favorite. The filling is so smooth and creamy, and the chocolate flavor is just right. I love that I can use a store-bought pie crust to save time.

These chocolate butter tarts were a hit! The filling was rich and creamy, and the chocolate flavor was perfect. The tarts were also very easy to make, and I loved that I could use a store-bought pie crust.
