Chocolate Sea Salt Caramel Tart


1. Place the sugar, corn syrup, and ½ cup of water into a saucepan and cook on medium heat until the sugar is a rich, brown color. Add 3/4 cup of the heavy cream (watch for steam!) and stir until incorporated.  Stir in the butter and sour cream until smooth.  Pour into a precooked crust and cool until slightly firm.

2. After the caramel has slightly cooled, heat the rest of the cream in a saucepan until boiling. Pour in chopped chocolate.  Let stand for 2 minutes and stir until smooth.  Pour on top of caramel tart and top with sea salt. Refrigerate until chilled, about 2 hours.
