Chocolate Salted Caramel Tart – This Chocolate Salted Caramel Tart is absolutely amazing. A buttery almond crust, gooey salted caramel and bittersweet chocolate ganache, all garnished with salted crystals. Chocolaty, rich and buttery, I fell in love with it from the first bite. Love the salt crystals as they don’t melt immediately and let your taste buds experience the sweet, the salty and the bitter in the same time.

This is the second time I make this Chocolate Salted Caramel Tart and I find it a fabulous dessert, totally irresistible. A suitable dessert for any special occasion and everybody will be more than delighted.

Don’t be afraid to give it a try, it is not a difficult recipe. The most difficult part is to wait for it to set so you can finally enjoy it.
Chocolate Salted Caramel Tart – The combination between sweet and salty has become one of my favorites.
