  • 1
    Heat oven to 425°F. Place pie crust in 10-inch tart pan with removable bottom as directed on box for One-Crust Filled Pie. Press in bottom and up side of pan; trim edges. Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until lightly browned and dry in appearance. If crust puffs in center, flatten gently with back of wooden spoon.

    Sprinkle 1 cup of the chocolate chips over hot crust. Let stand 5 minutes to soften. Gently spread chocolate over crust. Refrigerate to set chocolate. Reduce oven temperature to 375°F.

    In 2-quart saucepan, heat granulated sugar, brown sugar, corn syrup and whipping cream to full rolling boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly with whisk, until sugar is dissolved. Reduce heat to medium-low to just maintain a full boil. Cook 8 to 10 minutes, stirring frequently, until mixture thickens and starts to turn a slightly darker caramel color. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla and cranberries. Let stand 15 minutes. Stir in cashews. Spoon mixture evenly over chocolate layer.
  • 4
    Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until filling is bubbly and cashews are golden brown.
  • 5
    In small microwavable bowl, microwave remaining 1/4 cup chocolate chips and the oil uncovered on High 1 minute, stirring twice, until smooth. Drizzle over tart. Cool completely on cooling rack, about 2 hours. Refrigerate about 1 hour or until chocolate is set. Remove tart from side of pan. Store in refrigerator.

Expert Tips

This rich tart is a good keeper. It will keep for several days if tightly covered.

Semisweet chocolate chips can be used instead of the dark chocolate chips.
