AShazRecipeIconIt's not very often that I manage to bake something that looks as pretty as it tastes, but these adorable Raspberry and White Chocolate Caramel Tarts are finally fitting of that category!

This was a recipe I developed over Christmas time when I was feeling notably festive and wanted something that is easily shared between family and friends. With a gooey caramel filling, encased in a gorgeous shortbread base, and then topped with white chocolate and a single raspberry, you'll definitely get a few comments for delivering these to the table!

Raspberry and White Chocolate Caramel Tarts

Ingredients

  • 1/4 c brown sugar
  • 1/3 c butter*
  • 1 1/4 c plain flour

Filling Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp butter*
  • 1 1/2 tbsp golden syrup
  • 2/3 tin of condensed milk*
  • 1 1/2 tbsp custard powder

Icing and Decorations

  • 200 g white chocolate buttons
  • 1 punnet of raspberries
*I use a reduced fat or "healthier" version

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F) and lightly grease a 24 mini muffin tin.

    For the shortbread base, the easiest way is to use your cake mixer. Put brown sugar and butter into your cake mixer bowl and using a paddle attachment, beat until light and fluffy. Add in flour gradually, until a dough is formed and knead this until smooth.  

  2. Take a small portion of the cough, a couple of tsps, and press it into disc. Place it in the tin and using a utensil with a round end (like a pestle or end of a rolling pin), gently push it into the tin. 

  3. Bake for 18-20 mins until golden brown. At about the halfway point of cooking, gently push down the centres with a teaspoon to ensure they don't rise too much in the middle. Remove from the oven and leave to cool in the tray for 5 mins, then transfer to a wire rack for cooling and filling. 

     

Filling Directions

  1. To make the caramel filling, put all the caramel ingredients into a saucepan and cook over low-medium heat until well mixed and thickened - about 5-7 mins. Let it cool a bit before filling the cups. 

  2. Fill each cup with caramel up to just below or even with the shortbread top. Let the caramel set for 10-15 mins before topping with the white chocolate.

     

Decoration Directions

  1. Using a double broiler (or the trusty microwave!), melt your white chocolate until runny. Using a teaspoon, gently spoon a dollop of white chocolate over each tart (one at a time!) and spread the chocolate around to cover the caramel with the back of the spoon. Before the chocolate cools, top with a fresh raspberry!
