A little goes a long way when it comes to this overwhelmingly chocolatey Salted Caramel Chocolate Tart, which is why it can yield up to 20 servings! If you like opulent desserts with rich flavors, this is recipe will change your life. Using the Thermomix, you can make both the pastry, and the dense, gooey filling. The salt and vanilla counterbalance some intensity of the dark chocolate, but don't be fooled – it's still a heavy hitter. Give yourself 2 hours total for this as cooling and setting times may vary.
