graham cracker crust

  • 1 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs (approximately 10 graham cracker squares), 154 grams
  • 2 tablespoons (31 grams) Granulated Sugar
  • 5 tablespoons (70 grams) Unsalted Butter, melted

chocolate nutella filling

  • 1/2 cup (120 ml) Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 2 ounces (57 grams) Dark Chocolate
  • 1 tablespoon (15 grams) Unsalted Butter
  • 1 cup (360 grams) Nutella


  • 6-8 Fresh Strawberries, sliced


graham cracker crust

  1. Adjust the oven rack to the 2nd level mark (just above center) and preheat your oven to 350ºF.
  2. Using a food processor, process the graham crackers into fine crumbs. Add in the granulated sugar and melted butter and pulse until the cookie crust mixture forms. It should be the consistency of thick, mushy sand that can easily be shaped into the 6 mini tart tins.
  3. Press the graham cracker crust mixture into the bottom and sides of each mini tart tin. Smooth and even out the cookie crust using a rubber spatula or the bottom of a measuring cup.
  4. Place all 6 tart tins on a baking sheet and place into the oven. Bake for 10 minutes at 350ºF.
  5. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.

chocolate nutella filling

  1. Break apart the dark chocolate into small pieces and place in a medium-size microwaveable bowl. Add in the tablespoon of unsalted butter, but don’t stir together just yet!
  2. In a microwaveable bowl or measuring glass, heat the heavy whipping cream for 1 minute at full power. Immediately pour over top of the dark chocolate pieces and unsalted butter.
  3. Cover loosely with a sheet of aluminum foil and let sit for 2-3 minutes at room temperature.
  4. Remove the foil and slowly whisk the mixture together with a spatula until it’s nice and smooth. If you need to reheat the mixture to allow all the butter and chocolate to melt, you can do so in the microwave for 15-30 seconds at 50% power.
  5. Add the nutella to the mixture and slowly whisk together until it's well blended and smooth. It will be thick at first, but it will come together as you whisk it.

assembling the mini tarts

  1. Evenly spoon the nutella filling into each tart, then place into the refrigerator for 10-15 minutes to chill while you rinse off and slice the strawberries.
  2. Top each tart with the sliced strawberries then place back into the refrigerator for 3-4 hours or overnight before serving.
