Caramel chocolate tart

As we entered into the final weeks of the Great Blogger Bake Off it becomes a whole lot clearer that I would have probably left the competition weeks ago!

However not being one to quit I decided to carry on with the Great Blogger Bake Off competition and keep trying.

For the semi finals week we had the choice of a chocolate tart, chocolate soufflé or a chocolate and biscuit showstopper. Now after watching the masterpiece’s made in the show there was no way I could even attempt the chocolate showstopper and knowing how notoriously hard soufflé’s are it had to be chocolate tarts to bake!

I couldn’t find a recipe that I liked so in the end I mixed, matched and blagged my way through the recipe and surprisingly it tasted really yummy!!

For this recipe I received a voucher to be able to use purchase some Stork with Butter to use with this bake, I am always using Stork in my bakes anyway but it is good to see that they have brought out a new product which is easy to use straight from the fridge.
