A decadent chocolate and caramel tart, cures the cravings of all chocolate lovers. Fleur de sel chocolate and caramel are a winning combo, anyone who is into dessert will be totally thrilled with this indulgent tart!
Yesterday was my hubby’s birthday, i wanted this tart to look as romantic and as sinful as it tastes, one bite and he is in another realm! I guess i succeeded.
To make the crust you need:
- 2 cups flour
- 2 tbsp dark cocoa powder
- 1/4 cup caster sugar
- 200g butter cut in cubes
- pinch of salt
Mix flour, cocoa, sugar and salt. Add the butter and mix with your hands. At the beginning while adding the butter it will resemble the breadcrumbs and by the final cube of butter it will form a big clump.
Wrap it and let it rest in the fridge for half an hour before rolling in a mold. I used a rectangular one of 36x11x2.8 cm (14″x4 3/4″x1″). Preheat oven to 180°C. Poke the dough with a fork (it will prevent the dough from getting puffy). Baking for 20 mns.
Let it cool to room temperature before applying the first caramel layer. you will need almost 5 tbsp of caramel(i used a ready made caramel from bonne maman). Put it in the fridge for 2 hours then pour the chocolate ganache over and return it to chill in the fridge for another 4-6 hours before serving.
To make the ganache you need 100g chocolate fleur de sel chopped, 150 ml cream and one tbsp butter. Heat the cream for 2 minutes in the microwave, add the chopped chocolate and butter and whisk until u get the glossy ganache. Usually i don’t use butter in the ganache unless i want the glossy effect to chocolate. If you want to booze it up you can add 1 tbsp of fine whiskey or rum, depending on your preference.
