1 1/2 cups fat-free milk
1/4 cup chocolate-hazelnut spread (such as Nutella)
1/4 cup chopped hazelnuts, toasted

3. While crusts bake, combine pudding mix and milk, stirring with a whisk for 2 minutes.

4. Spread 1 tablespoon hazelnut spread over bottom of each warm crust. Spoon pudding mixture evenly over hazelnut spread in each crust. Chill in refrigerator 30 minutes or until ready to serve.

5. Sprinkle tarts evenly with hazelnuts and chocolate shavings, if desired.
