Chocolate & Sea Salt Caramel Tart
3 cup sugar
½ cup corn syrup
½ cup water
2 1/4 cup cup heavy cream
¾ cup butter
4 tbsp sour cream
15 oz milk chocolate
Sea salt for garnish
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.
