Today's Tuesdays with Dorie posting is a bit late on purpose. I wanted to wait until the temperature outside was civilized before standing over a hot stove. This week's selection was chosen by Carla of Chocolate Moosey, and a delicious one it is.
Last Saturday, I did a lot of baking in the early morning because I knew that by late afternoon I wouldn't want to set foot in the kitchen. One of the baked items was the tart crust. I just packed it away until today and it was very nice to have it ready to go.
I did reverse the cooking process a bit. I made the ganache first so it could cool to room temperature. Then I made the peanut-caramel layer, using honey roasted peanuts from Trader Joe's. The caramel layer was nice and gooey. And very tasty.
By the time I was ready to add the ganache layer, it was nice and thick -- not too thick, but just the right consistency to pour and stay in place.
Even though I refrigerated the tart for not more than 30 minutes, the peanut-caramel layer was still soft, flowing a bit on the plate.
There were no complaints about this dessert. Definitely a winner.
As with every recipe this group tries, there are many variations and results, so stop by the TWD blog and take a look at all the other chocolate-caramel tarts.
