Inexpensive Ways to Show Your Valentine Just How Much You Care

I have long since given up hope of ever growing out of my sweet tooth. Childhood me would be relieved to find out that adults actually do still love dessert. Fortunately, giving into your sweet tooth doesn’t have to mean passing out in a sugar coma after downing an entire pack of Oreos. With fresh fruit and a rich chocolate hazelnut spread, this chocolate hazelnut and berry puff pastry tart is the perfect healthy, grown-up dessert. With simple, clean ingredients, it’s a guilt-free way to give into your sweet tooth.

Fresh Fruit & Nutty Chocolate

As far as ingredients go, this chocolate fruit tart keeps things simple. Start with a large whole-wheat puff pastry sheet for a healthy crust. Once baked, this pastry is the perfect fluffy, flaky base for your delicious dessert tart.

And now for the fun part. Everyone knows chocolate and hazelnut can only mean one thing. Yep, Nutella. For this healthy dessert, we’ve kept things light by using our own Skinny Nutella Spread. This healthier version of the sinfully good spread stays light thanks to coconut milk and honey. That said, this skinny version doesn’t miss a beat when it comes to creamy chocolatey goodness or rich hazelnut flavor. And at just 54 calories per tablespoon, this skinny alternative is much easier on the waistline and the conscience.

Our skinny sweet speed makes the perfect filling for this puff pastry tart. Just a quarter of a cup spread over the cooled puff pastry makes this dessert rich and chocolatey — everything you want in a dessert.

Nothing pairs better with sweet chocolate and rich hazelnuts than fresh berries. This chocolate hazelnut and berry puff pastry tart features the can’t-miss trifecta of blueberries, raspberries, and sliced strawberries. Sprinkled over the rich chocolate hazelnut spread, these berries add fresh flavor and natural sweetness to this guilt-free dessert.

The Perfect Skinny Dessert

The best kind of healthy dessert is the kind of dessert that doesn’t have to go out of its way to be healthy. This dessert tart is naturally light with fresh, healthy ingredients that pack natural sweetness. Present this delicious and elegant chocolate hazelnut and berry puff pastry tart to guests and no one will write it off as “diet food.” But at only 150 calories per serving, you’ll be able to enjoy it in peace without sacrificing your health and fitness goals.

Serve this dessert chilled, and top with light whipped cream or a small serving of vanilla frozen yogurt. Dig in and let your sweet tooth sing!

Chocolate Hazelnut and Berry Puff Pastry Tart

This beautiful and scrumptious tart is made with 5 fresh and wholesome ingredients so eat up and enjoy.
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Yield 12 people
Serving Size 1 square
Course Dessert
Cuisine American

Ingredients

  • 1 whole-wheat puff pastry sheet (roughly 12 inches by 6 inches)
  • 1/4 cup chocolate hazelnut spread (we used our Skinny Ms. Skinny Nutella Spread)
  • 1/4 cup raspberries fresh
  • 1/4 cup blueberries fresh
  • 1/2 cup strawberries fresh, sliced

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Place the puff pastry on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Roll up a small portion of each edge to create a crust. Using a fork, prick just the bottom of the pastry several times. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes or until puffed and golden brown. Let cool.
  • When the puff pastry has cooled completely, spread the chocolate hazelnut spread over top. If it is too hard to spread over the pastry, warm the chocolate hazelnut spread so it is slightly melted. Sprinkle the berries over top. Chill until ready to serve.

Notes

To make this recipe ahead, add the berries just before baking.
Also, to add an egg wash to the crust, use a pastry brush and brush the crust with the wash just before adding the berries.
Egg wash: whip together 1 egg and 1 tablespoon water or milk. Discard any remaining wash.

  1. This is absolutely delicious. I didn’t have the time to make the nutella from scratch, so I bought one from the supermarket. Nonetheless, this is so yummy and I can’t wait to make it for my family and friends. You need to make this immediately. Thank you for the recipe!

    1. Thanks for the feedback, Anita! This one happens to be one of my personal favorites 🙂 We’re happy to hear that you loved it!

  2. Hi There,
    I’d like to know if I make this ahead, do I add the berries, and how long can it keep in the refrigerator before serving? As well, does the pastry need an egg wash before baking?
    I’ve already made the Skinny Nutella Spread and it’s delicious!

    1. Hi Mary-Anne,
