Chocolate Walnut Tarts

This is one of my favorite desserts.  I like chocolate and walnuts very much, so the combination of these two ingredients forms the ideal sweet  treat for me...!
Below you will be able to find the step by step instructions on how to make these tarts, and at the bottom of this post you can find the recipe.
-----------------------------------------------------------
The dough has to be hard enough in order for you to be able to grate it.
With the help of a spoon, divide the grated base into your silicone cupcakes pan.
Press the dough into the bottom of the cupcakes pan to form a unified base.

 Mix well the sugar, the cocoa powder and the egg.
 In a sauce pan heat the milk and dissolve in it the butter.  Do not boil.
 Pour the milk mixture into the cocoa mixture and mix well; add the vanilla essence.
 Place the chopped walnuts on top of the base.
 Pour the cocoa mixture into the cupcake pan.
 In a preheated oven, bake for 25’ to 30’ minutes at 180ºC.
Allow to cool in a wire rack.
