OH. MY. GOODNESS. Yes, this is the real deal! One of the easiest, most spectacular tarts we have ever feasted on! With only six ingredients and an hour of time, this was seriously the smoothest three layers of decadent lusciousness ever served for a special birthday celebration!
Start with a thick Oreo cookie crust, followed with a smooth homemade salted caramel layer, and top with a dark chocolate ganache that rivals the best dark chocolate truffle. This smooth caramel sauce was so easy to make, and would also be delicious drizzled over butter pecan ice cream or a slice of fresh baked apple pie!
I used a deep 10-inch french tart pan, which made serving a breeze. While I am not crazy about Oreo cookies - my kids will eat them by the handful - but that being said, this crust was tender, chewy and incredible! I used a combination of Ghiradelli 60% and 72% Bittersweet Chocolate as a base for the smooth ganache, and sprinkled with flaky Fleur De Sel (sea salt) right before serving.
With so many family birthdays in September, this was a wonderful change from birthday cake and ice cream. Happy 21st Birthday Melissa - this was a special treat for our very special girl! Love you always,
