Milky Way Tart
What better way to spend a cloudy, chilly October 31st? With the doorbell ringing in just a few hours, I am not sure we will get the main event (that's ok, we had it last night for dinner). We will, however, be able to grab bites of the Obatzda (I included the link so that you can read all about it) during the neighborhood candy spree. And when the doorbell stops ringing, we will turn off the lights, turn off the pumpkin candle, close the door behind us and run inside for a slice of my idea of a gourmet candy treat.
There are three wonderful layers of sweetness in this tart; a chocolate pastry crust, a gooey caramel layer and a chocolate-malted chocolate whipped cream. All three make for an undeniably rich tart.
I was inspired by an old Bon Appetit magazine recipe, but of course, I have my adaptations. I used my own chocolate pastry dough and to really make this like a Milky Way, I added a secret ingredient; chocolate-malt milk powder. I used Ovaltine brand which has plenty of vitamins, so it's good for you right?? The addition of this secret ingredient really gives it that malt chocolate nougat taste. Finish off the tart with a drizzle of melted chocolate or you can just dust the top with a little cocoa powder. Whichever way will be good.
It's perfect for Halloween, but let's be honest. Chocolate and Caramel are well received anytime of year!
Have a safe and happy Sunday!
