Chocolate tartlets with Salted caramel feeling

It's amazing how much staff do we need to live and on the other hand how little we need to survive. The last two months was tough. When you live in the place which is filled with tourists and bursting with life in times of crisis is safe but it might feel like you are in the creepy movie. Well the view and sound of see make you fell comfy. Although I wouldn't be myself if I wouldn't say that I have something better to cheer you up. Chocolate tartlets with salted caramel feeling and crunchy hazelnuts inside. 


  • 1 shortcrust pastry 
  • 150 g dark chocolate 70%
  • 75 g whipping cream
  • 100 g chopped hazelnuts
  1. Preheat the oven - 180°C.
  2. Prepare 6-8 tartlet moulds. Any shape you have will works well. 
  3. Place the short crust pastry on a working surface.
  4. Line all moulds with pastry and trim off the access. By using a fork pinch few times pastry on the bottom. Repeat with all.
  5. Bake tartlets for 12 min until pale golden brown.
  6. Take out from the oven and let it cool.
  7. Remove from the moulds. Set asie.
  8. Chop chocolate and place in the mixing bowl. 
  9. Warm up the cream and pour over chocolate. Mix well.
  10. When is all melted and combined put into the fridge. 
  11. Stir every 10 min until is ready to pipe on mini tarts.

  1. Take one tart shell. 
  2. Fill up half way with salted caramel. (recipe below)
  3. Sprinkle with hazelnuts. 
  4. Put in the fridge for 10 min to let caramel settle.
  5. Remove from the fridge and pipe chocolate ganache on the top of the caramel.
  6. Garnish with 1/2 hazelnut.
  7. Put in the fridge for 1 h to let it settle.

Salted Caramel

  • 125 g sugar
  • 50 g cold butter
  • 75 ml double cream
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  1. On a medium heat melt sugar. Use a small pot with thick bottom.
  2. When the sugar become golden brown add cold butter. Start stirring with rubber spatula. It will be foamy but this is exactly how this should looks like. 
  3. When the butter is completely combined with sugar - add cream. Again the mass will be very foamy but keep stirring just to combine everything well. 
  4. In the very last end add salt and stir well. Remove from the heat and set aside. 
  5. You can also move it to the jar and keep it in the fridge for the further use.

How do yo like this pretty ladie? For me looks kind of perfect.

Some people listen to relaxation music, some of them tidy up. Some bake and cook just like me. I am glad I found this unique place which I can call "mine". I can share recipes with you and hopefully show that it's always can be cheerfull and easy to cook/bake. It can also be a fun even if you take a shortcut sometimes.

Wherever you are I wish you best.
