TWD: chocolate-crunched caramel “tart”

September 29, 2009

choc carm 1

When I first joined Tuesdays with Dorie, I invested in the book and immediately began perusing the pages for fun things to make. My sights settled on this one.  I know I am not the only one who has had this experience since almost everyone I know who has picked up the book has oogled over the picture.  When Carla picked out the recipe, I was (first) surprised that it hadn’t been chosen before and (second) thrilled to make it.

As I mentioned in my last post though, last week was k-razy!  I originally planned to just buy a premade crust, but then that didn’t even seem doable mid week.  I even made the ganash over the weekend to facilitate and encourage myself along.  When getting a crust didn’t seem likely, I poured my goods into ramekins and called it good.

Wow. This makes one incredible spoon dessert!  It was my first experience making caramel and man was it not scary!  This was so tasty and I never missed the crust.  It lived up to (and maybe even surpassed, in my opinion) the photo.  I will definitely be making it again.

    Wow..I really wish I could join TWD, as every recipe I see looks amazing. She’s so into chocolate and caramel..which is right up my alley. Your take on her tart looks decadent and gorgeous! Nicely done 🙂

    YUM! I love the tart filling in your photos, without the crust. I know what you mean about a delicious looking picture in the cookbook and was happy to see the recipe finally get picked.

    I like your peanut garnish! I made this in ramekins with a crust, but it would be good as a spoon dessert. It’s hard to go wrong with caramel and chocolate.

    The crust is my least favorite part of any pie or tart, so I think that the spoon version of this tart is just PERFECT! Just looking at the caramel on the spoon is making my mouth water.
