Caramelised White Chocolate Tart
1 Hr 60 Min Serves 6


Ingredients

  • 1 x sweet pastry case
  • 300ml double cream
  • 260g caramelised white chocolate
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2tsp salt

Method

  1. 01. Note from Head Chef Ryan: Caramelised white chocolate is a favourite of mine, a deep roasted flavour but maintaining the sweetness and smooth chocolate qualities. For such an interesting taste it is surprisingly simple to make. At room temperature the caramelised white chocolate will be solid and can be stored in a airtight jar for 2 months. Sprinkle it on ice cream, cakes, poached fruits (pears, apples) or melt it and re-set it into a pastry case for a tart.
  2. 02. Preheat oven 120C
  3. 03. Break up the chocolate (any amount) into even chunks onto a silicone mat or baking parchment and place it in the hot oven for 30-60 minutes
  4. 04. Take it out and fold it over every 5-8 mins, then when it has caramelised and resembles crumble leave it to cool and harden
  5. 05. Boil the cream, pour over the white chocolate and stir until melted and smooth
  6. 06. Add the eggs and salt to the mixture then pour into the pastry case and bake for 20-25mins at 180C
  7. 07. Leave to cool until set
