Hi Bold Bakers!
One of the best things about my Bigger Bolder Baking cookbook is how it’s organized. Each chapter is based on a kitchen tool, so you know exactly where to go with what you’ve got on-hand — no matter what kind of kitchen you have. My Salted Caramel and Peanut Chocolate Tart is from the chapter No-Oven Needed — and when you don’t have an oven, it’s too hot to use the one you’ve got, or you’re just looking for some sweet simplicity, my cookbook has you covered in every situation.
Peanuts, chocolate, and caramel are one of my favorite combinations. Something about the salty crunch of the peanuts, the sweetness of amber caramel, and rich chocolate just work. This no-bake wonder combines all 3. The tart looks sophisticated but is actually super simple to make and brings out the kid in whoever is eating it, as it’s almost a nod to some of my favorite candy bars!
What Kind of Chocolate Does A Salted Caramel Peanut Chocolate Tart?
Besides the look of this lovely tart, the other thing that makes it a bit more grown-up is the bittersweet chocolate ganache. My Rich Chocolate Ganache is made of only cream and really good quality bittersweet chocolate. The use of less sweet chocolate elevates the tart and makes it not overly sweet.
What Kind of Crust Does a Salted Caramel Peanut Chocolate Tart Have?
The base of my Salted Caramel and Peanut Chocolate Tart is my classic Graham Cracker crust. This is a great way to add flavor and take away fuss when making a pie or tart as it’s made with just butter and Graham cracker crumbs. You can even make use my Homemade Graham Crackers! However, feel free to use digestives, rich tea, or any plain vanilla cookies you like.
How do I Make Salted Caramel Sauce?
Although caramel is only a few ingredients, it does take some technique to make. Luckily, my Signature Salted Caramel Sauce recipe has it all broken down for you. This one is foolproof, leaving you with a silky sweet caramel sauce that works so well not just in this tart but on top of ice cream and all kinds of other treats. If you want an in-depth crash course on making caramel head over to my post on Troubleshooting Caramel!
How Do I Store A Chocolate Tart?
Since this tart is no-bake and sets in the fridge, I suggest wrapping it tightly with cling wrap or in an air-tight container after it’s set and storing in the fridge.
How Long Will It Last?
If covered nice and tight this tart will keep really well in the fridge for up to 4 days, enjoy!
