These are too good so let’s get BEASTY!!

What will you need?

1/2 a portion of my pasta frolla.

I would make half the recipe unless you want to freeze the rest or double the amount we are making here.

You also need to add in 2 tablespoons of Dutch processed cocoa to the dry ingredients for a rich chocolate dough.

Remember: DO NOT OVER WORK THE DOUGH!!

1/2 tin of Condensed milk.

2 good squirts of golden syrup.

30 g of butter.

130 g chocolate chips

1/4 cup of cream.

P1070254 (800x600)

Roll it out..

Make the Pasta Frolla and let it rest for a minimum of an hour.

Turn out onto a very lightly floured bench and gently roll out the dough.

I used a medium-sized muffin tin, well-greased as my moulds.

You can if you have moulds, use them, you can play around with the size as well.

Cut dough and quickly place into the muffin tray.

Pre heat oven to 165 Celsius.

Bake the pastry shells for 15-20 minutes.

Remove from the oven and allow to cool.

While the shells are baking and then cooling, make the caramel.

Combine the condensed milk, butter and golden syrup in a small saucepan.

Heat on a low heat and combine ingredient well, slowly cooking until a thick caramel mixture appears.

Usually about 10 minutes.

Spoon caramel into the shells and place back in the oven for 5-10 minutes.

Remove from oven and allow to cool.

To be ganached!

Yummmm

Ganache...

Ganache…

While the caramel filled tarts are cooling, make the ganache.

Warm the cream in a little saucepan and add in the chocolate.

Do not mix over heat, if you need to, do it over a double boiler but the choccy should melt in the warm cream.

Mix well , allowing to cool and when it thickens, spoon onto the top of the caramel tarts.

Allow to cool and set.

Tasty...

  1. Thanks Fae….Your ears must be burning as was just thinking of you….a question re rosewater as they use this alot in Persian baking, don’t they?
    This probably sounds weird but can I use rosewater and just reduce it to be a syrup or do i make a sugar syrup and add rosewater? what would you do? I just made some rosewater, pistachio and marzipan buns but was going to drizzle a rosewater syrup over them….
