Carla of Chocolate Moosey chose Chocolate-Crunched Caramel Tart, for this weeks Tuesdays with Dorie. If you are looking for a super rich chocolate dessert that looks like you went all out, this is for you. I loved the sweet tart dough and the layer of caramel and peanuts was delicious but, the top layer of chocolate gauche was almost too rich to eat. I caution you to follow the instructions very carefully and use low heat when making the caramel. I burned the first batch and had to make it over. I also decided to use half bittersweet chocolate and half semisweet chocolate to try to tone down the chocolate flavor a bit.
My family's opinion on the tart was split. Half liked it and the other half thought that it was just too rich. They all loved the caramel and peanut layer. I was undecided but I will say that I enjoyed it much better the next day after it was well chilled. The crust was still good and the chocolate layer tasted like truffles.
