Chocolate and caramel tarts

A nutty chocolatey crunchy crust and the creamy soft caramel filling, oh my. These tarts are decadent for sure. Topped with sea salted dark chocolate.

Ok enough mesmerizing, the tarts tasted awesome and I still want some- but I can eat no more. I’m totally full. With all their decadency, they are pretty filling.

I suggest you slice up the tarts in small bites when serving, or make one medium sized one that you can serve in slices. They keep for 4 days in the fridge.

Enjoy!
