Caramel Chocolate Truffle Tart
A silky, dark, intensely flavored chocolate tart is an elegant conclusion to any meal. With a no-bake filling that requires only four ingredients, it’s also amazingly easy to prepare.
Why This Recipe Works
We began developing our caramel chocolate truffle tart recipe by stripping away the extraneous ingredients—flour, eggs, nuts, and other additions that diluted or detracted from the chocolate flavor. We preferred the simplicity and direct flavor of a ganache filling. After much trial and error, we found the right ratio of chocolate to cream to make a tart filling with the chocolate intensity and melt-in-your-mouth texture that we were after. We also found the exact amount of butter needed to give the filling of our caramel chocolate truffle tart recipe a glossy sheen and silky smoothness.
