To be honest, I’ve never been a fan of salted caramel anything. But everyone around me seems to be in love with this flavor combo, so I decided to give it a shot. And I’m glad because I loved them 🙂
These little bites of deliciousness are filled with flavor!
It starts off with a tart shell. Then I made a dark chocolate ganache and put a dollop inside. I then added a layer of caramel on top of that and drizzled chocolate and sprinkled some salt.
Unfortunately I didn’t take step by step pictures…. So bear with me… But I drew something to show everyone what the tarts should look like when assembling
Alright…. Recipe time 🙂
You can find the tart shell at
8 oz heavy cream
8 oz dark chocolate
1 tbsp vanilla extract
Pour chocolate into a heat resistant bowl. Heat heavy cream to a boil. Slowly add hot cream to chocolate while stirring. Once chocolate is melted, stir in vanilla.
Set aside in room temperature until the chocolate has firmed.
*You may adjust the thickness of ganache by simply adding more or less heavy cream.
1 c sugar
1/2 c Brown sugar
1/2 c butter
1 c half & half
1/2 c corn syrup
1/2 tsp vanilla
Begin by adding all ingredients except the vanilla into a pot. Cook on medium high until it reaches a boil. (15-20 min) stirring occasionally.
Once it reaches a boil, you will continue to cook the mixture for another 25-30 min. Cook until caramel reaches 244 degrees or firm ball stage.
Remove from heat and add vanilla.
Pour into a greased pan or mold and let firm.
With my extra I made some caramel candies and salted them
I didn’t wrap them up and make them pretty. But you surely could wrap them in parchment paper.
