An adaptation of Dorie Greenspan’s Chocolate-Crunched Caramel Tart from her book Baking: From My Home to Yours, the luscious combination of chocolate, caramel and port offers a burst of flavors that delicately melt on your tongue. A silky port ganache conceals a layer of creamy, yet crunchy walnut caramel for a delightful contrast. Rather than use Dorie’s dough, we opted for a chocolate crust to magnify the chocolate intensity. The recipe can be prepared as one large tart, but we prefer the adorable charm of individual tarts. We also recommend serving at room temperature for the most luxurious texture, and within a day or two of being made.
