Salted Dark Chocolate Tart Recipe

Publisher Photo
When I was little, my grandpa always had a bag of caramels in his truck and a few in his pocket. Whether we were camping or going to a movie I always enjoyed sharing caramels with him. Now I try to put caramel in as many of my desserts as possible, including this sweet-and-salty tart. —Leah Tackitt, Austin, Texas
