So a white chocolate tart isn’t your cup of ganache? No prob. Go dark. Get salty. Get gooey about it.  We’re still talking about baking, right?

I think salted chocolate desserts are divine, the salty balancing out the sweet….and add a layer of caramel to it? BOOM, you made a fancy Twix, bitch!!!

The first time I made this tart it was not a complete success.  I made caramel, but as soon as I poured it into the crust, it seized up, and was too hard to really enjoy. I brought it to a weekend out of the city, and everyone was kind enough to eat it, but I was mad. It was not what I had set out to create.  So I researched it, looked at bunch of recipes to see where I went wrong.  The answer? Corn syrup.

Yes friends, corn syrup is so incredibly important if you’re making candy, or want to keep what you’re making soft.  Scientifically speaking, corn syrup acts as an interfering agent when you’re making your caramel; it goes in between your sugar molecules so they don’t latch back on to each other, which results in hard caramel. I bought organic corn syrup, so even if you’re squeamish about this ingredient, I did use the best possible option out there.  AND IT WORKED. I made this tart again for a friend’s baby shower  last weekend and the caramel was gooey and perfect. So without further ado.

It’s hot out. And I decided to experiment and create a summer tart. Something that makes you think of sunny skies when you eat it. I wanted to challenge myself to make white chocolate ganache, and I’m a huge fan of lemon. Pairing these things together made a dessert a sweet tooth can only dream of.

Things I learned: white chocolate ganache is very hard to make, I own many yellow pieces of clothing, and there are a lot of angles with a camera that can make you look pretty special. Luckily for you, none of those will show up here.

You’ll also receive double trouble this week.  Juxtaposed with this daytime sunshine tart, I also made a salted chocolate and caramel tart which I’ll post in a few days. Dark and sexy.
