  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Prepare individual 10 individual tart pans or 1 large 12 inch pie pan.
  • Break the graham crackers into smaller pieces and place in a food processor. Pulse until you have a fine crumb and place in a large bowl. Add 3 tablespoons of sugar. Pour the melted butter gradually into the bowl until you have a moist enough consistency to form crust. Press firmly into the bottom of the pan you are using. Remove excess crumbs so that your crust is not overly thick.
  • To make the chocolate filling, roughly chop both chocolates and place in a large bowl. Bring the whipping cream to a boil. Once the cream has boiled, pour over the chocolates and stir until melted and you are left with a creamy ganache.
  • Pour the filling into the pie crusts and let cool. Sprinkle top of tarts with powdered sugar, chocolate shavings or whipped cream. They are all delicious options!

Alternative Method: Praline Chocolate Tartlets Using an Air Fryer

Satisfy your sweet tooth with praline chocolate tarts

Begin by preheating your air fryer to 320°F (160°C) for 3-4 minutes, setting the stage for perfectly crisp tartlet shells. Nestle the pre-made shells into the air fryer basket, watching as they transform during their 5-6 minute air-fry ballet into golden brown, irresistibly crispy perfection.

As the shells dance in the air fryer, turn your attention to crafting the indulgent praline chocolate filling. In a microwave-safe bowl, blend chopped dark chocolate, heavy cream, praline paste, and unsalted butter. Microwave this decadent concoction in 20-second intervals, stirring diligently until the chocolate metamorphoses into a smooth, velvety texture.

Once the tartlet shells emerge, golden and triumphant, from their air fryer performance, let them cool briefly. Then, with an artisan’s touch, fill each shell with the praline chocolate elixir. It’s a moment of harmony as the crispness of the shell meets the lusciousness of the filling.

To set the stage for the grand finale, place these delectable creations in the refrigerator for a minimum of 30 minutes. This cooling interlude allows the flavors to meld, creating a perfect union of textures. As a final touch, garnish with chopped nuts or a dusting of cocoa powder, if your heart desires.

Cooking Tips

 Praline Chocolate Tarts
Crafting praline chocolate tarts: a delicious journey.

First and foremost, when making the dough, don’t skimp on kneading time. Those minutes spent vigorously working the dough are key to developing the gluten that gives rugelach their signature flaky layers. I also highly recommend chilling the dough thoroughly before rolling – at least two hours, but longer is even better! A very cold dough makes shaping those crescent rolls so much easier. As eager as I am to fill and bake my rugelach, patience pays off with pastry.

When it comes time to fill my crescents, I’ve found the best jam for these has nice big fruit pieces instead of being too smooth or runny. The texture plays so nicely against the flaky dough. And don’t be shy with the filling! Generous dollops ensure every bite contains that sweet fruity flavor I love. A final sprinkle of coarse sugar on top adds such a delightful crunch and sparkle to contrast the soft filling within.

As someone who loves to share my baking, I always make extra rugelach when I can. They freeze beautifully for up to three months, ready to be warmed back to life when unexpected guests arrive. Just be sure to underbake them slightly before freezing, so they won’t dry out when reheated later.
