Salted Caramel Chocolate Tart
This tart is so good, so rich, so salty sweet -- it might make you sweat. A tiny sliver will do, my friends. There are 3 components: the chocolate dough, the caramel filling, and the chocolate glaze. And I admit I took a full Saturday afternoon to do it. (While piddling with smaller, non-essential tasks during the waiting periods.) But a grand prize awaits for you. Since it's rich it will last a while (with 2 people, like here), and on that last slice, a week or so later -- everything will seem worth it. We kept ours in the refrigerator when we weren't indulging ourselves.
As a bit of history, Ms. Hesser explains that this tart made its creator (Claudia Fleming) famous and sparked the salt-in-desserts craze that we all know and love.
