- 1 1/4 cups flour
- 1/4 cup almonds ground
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder unsweetened
- 1 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
- 180 grams unsalted butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- 1-2 tablespoons ice water
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate chopped
- In a large bowl, mix the flour, almonds, cocoa powder, 1/4 cup of the sugar and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt to create the pastry.
- Incorporate 110g of the butter into the flower mixture by breaking it into cubes. Use a for, blender or processor until crumbs begin to form.
- To the flour mixture, add the egg, vanilla extract and ice water to create the dough. Once formed, wrap in plastic, knead it to form a disc and refrigerate between 30 minutes - overnight.
- On a floured surface, or over the plastic, roll the dough so it is about 1 1/2 inches larger than your tart pan. Lift the dough, fill the greased pan and cut off the scrap edges. Refrigerate for 30 minutes before baking. Place in the oven for around 20 minutes at 350°F / 180°C.
- For the caramel, place 1 1/2 cups of sugar and the water in a saucepan. Heat over medium-high heat without stirring, until the mixture becomes caramel in colour.
- Remove the pan from the heat and add half of the cream. Cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring continuously. Remove from the heat, add the rest of the butter and salt and stir until smooth.
- Let the caramel cool slightly before pouring over the crust. Refrigerate for 4-5 hours.
- For the ganache, heat the rest of the cream in a pan until it begins to boil at the edges. Remove from heat and pour over the chopped chocolate. Leave for a minute before stirring until smooth.
- Pour the ganache over the caramel and refrigerate for another 2-3 hours. Sprinkle with sea salt and serve!
