Tuesdays with Dorie: Chocolate-Crunched Caramel TartSeptember 29, 2009 at 1:24 am | Posted in groups, pies & tarts, sweet things, tuesdays with dorie | 55 Comments
Carla of Chocolate Moosey chose one sexy tart for TWD this week– Dorie’s Chocolate-Crunched Caramel Tart. Soft bittersweet ganache on top of caramel and peanuts…this is rich and decadent. Using a high percentage chocolate and taking your caramel to a deep amber keeps it from being overly sweet. It’s a special occasion tart that’s surprisingly easy to make, especially if you’ve had some chocolate shortbread dough hiding out in the freezer for a rather long while (I used it instead of making a new batch of sweet tart dough).
