Chocolate Salted Caramel Strawberry Tart


What’s Black Friday? Shopping of course! And my favorite place to shop is one of the most magical shops in New York.. Sur La Table. OMG, it’s like cooking heaven. I would have bought everything but my bank statement was saying ‘Sara, you’re poor, don’t do that’. But I had to buy at least one thing: a white pie pan.

Of Course two days later I was baking and this is the result! A chocolate tart with salted caramel, strawberry sauce and dark chocolate ganache. The preparation is a little bit long but with patience the result is really great!
