Like a rich candy bar in a tartlet crust, these are a perfect little treat with coffee after dinner, when you want a little something but don’t quite know what. I like these made with pecans, but you could omit them for a pure chocolate filling—just finish the tops of the tartlets with some chocolate shavings. The caramel emphasizes the flavor of both the chocolate and the pecans perfectly.
