How to make a giant chocolate hazelnut butter cup

If you like peanut butter cups, or any nut butter cup, from the candy aisle, then watch this: Bon Appétit food editor Shilpa Uskokovic likes them, too, so she created a hazelnut butter cup tart recipe.

This tart looks exactly like a giant Reese’s peanut butter cup, her favorite candy from childhood.

“Actually, it’s better, because the filling—made with hazelnuts here—is faintly crumbly, just like the original, and crispy-crunchy thanks to the addition of crushed-up ice cream cones. You could use a knife dipped in hot water and wiped clean to cut the tart into neat slices, but joyously hacking into it with abandon is more in keeping with the holiday spirit.”


“Hazelnuts feel festive and apropos of the holidays but peanuts or pecans (my personal favorite) are excellent swaps. Toast them as you would the hazelnuts.”
