TWD: Chocolate-Crunched Caramel Tart


Carla of Chocolate Moosey chose the Chocolate-Crunched Caramel Tart for this week's Tuesdays with Dorie. It's gorgeous... and so delicious.


I wish someone had told me sooner how easy it was to make Dorie's tart dough! I believe I skipped a tart recipe a little while back because I didn't feel like messing with dough. But boy, it was easier and quicker than expected.


I baked this a few weeks ago for company and it turned out perfectly. Making the caramel ended up being fairly easy. And the layer of chocolate ganache set up beautifully. I couldn't get over how picture perfect it looked. This will definitely be a go-to recipe for company and special occasions.

Another Dorie success! Great choice, Carla!

I love her doughs.

They are simple.

This tart, even though it is simple to make, is way high on the taste scale.

Your tart looks perfect! The crust is very easy to make and turns out great. I'm still afraid of pie crust, though.

I didn't want to make this because I didn't want to fool around with the tart dough either. I agree with you, this tart is really pretty simple, and I'm glad I didn't skip it. Yours look so elegant and so very tasty!
