This delightful chocolate-nut tart is a standout among a sea of pumpkin, pecan, and apple recipes. The ingredients are simple: buttery, rich macadamia nuts floating amid a dark chocolate-bourbon filling, all atop a crisp pate sucree tart shell.
I've made this a number of times and it is delicious. And while it tastes wonderful, the presentation is lacking. I take some semi sweet chocolate, melt it and drizzle it over the top. It dresses it up and actually makes it look like it came from a professional bakery.
This recipe is over-the-top delicious and has been a favorite of my family for years. For a sweeter treat, try it with Kahlua or Irish Cream instead of the bourbon. Always delicious as well as a deceptively impressive-looking dessert on the buffet!

I've been making, and devouring this recipe for years. The photo isn't quite accurate. The chopped chocolate sinks to the bottom, making for a black-bottom cupcake effect. Everyone loves this, and enjoys it because macadamia nuts are such a treat!
