Chocolate Macadamia Nut Tart

Chocolate Macadamia Nut Tart


  • 1 1/2 cups unsalted macadamia nuts
  • 6 ounces bittersweet chocolate coarsely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons unsalted butter
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 1 egg white
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2/3 cup dark corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon rum
  • Chocolate pastry shell
  • Unsweetened whipped cream for garnish


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

    Place macadamia nuts in a medium skillet and toast over low heat, stirring often until golden brown all over, about 8 minutes. Do not burn. Set aside to cool completely.

    In a double boiler, combine the chocolate and butter and melt, stirring over moderate heat. Set aside to cool slightly.

    In a large bowl, whisk the whole eggs, egg white, sugar and corn syrup until combined. Stir in the rum, the cooled chocolate mixture and the nuts until blended. Pour the filling into the partially baked chocolate pastry shell and bake for about 45 minutes, until the center is set and does not wiggle. Set aside to cool on a rack. Serve at room temperature or chilled, garnish with whipped cream.
