About 2 Way Chocolate And Coffee Caramel Tarts

For a long time now,for my love of coffee and chocolate I have been thinking of making something with both the flavours. So, tarts were the basis of my idea and their fillings were combination of chocolate ganache done two ways - baked and chilled - and coffee caramel sauce which I made by adding coffee to the basic caramel sauce recipe. So even though to arrive at the very dish there are a few components you have to make and assemble but they are pretty simple and assembling them and coming to cherishing their taste wont take much time either. So try your hand this and I am sure you will love it 😀
