Chocolate-dulce de leche tart

When David mentioned making dulce de leche from condensed milk I decided to try it.

I did some research and the recipe I finally used was easy.  I poured the milk into a baking dish, covered it tightly with aluminum foil, and baked it in a water bath for 1-1/2 hours. You must be careful to keep the water level about half way covering the baking dish.

I was really pleased with the results and very happy with myself for trying.

The chocolate tart dough was simple to prepare,  the dough easy to work with.

The filling is made from eggs and milk into a thickened pudding texture and then  strained into the melted chocolate.  Flaky sea salt is sprinkled on top before putting it in the oven.

This is a very rich dessert, best if served in small portions.   It is really delicious and perfect for chocolate lovers.

  1. Ro, I think that is one of the most beautiful and perfect desserts you have ever made – and, all from scratch. That is tastes delicious is a bonus. Good for you. I am sure Patty gobbled up her piece or, two. Fabulous job this week. Bravo to you for the “chin up” advice. I am trying. You know that. And, every time I start to take a step back, I will think of you not wanting to fall on your derriere. As for my visual of you, it will ALWAYS be when you were living the life of a Queen in our high-priced hotel in Seattle several years ago. Somehow you were smart enough to stay home and have breakfast in bed while your crazy daughter and I got up at 5am to go to some dismal market that was not yet open. How did that happen! Happy Thanksgiving to your crew and love.

  2. You nailed it, Ro! “a very rich dessert, best if served in small portions”
    You inspired me to make my own dulce de leche, though I followed the directions for doing it in the slow cooker. I’m so glad I learned how easy it was.
    Wishing you and your family a wonderful Thanksgiving!!!! xo

  4. Yours turned out beautifully! I wish I had taken the time to make my own dulce de leche. I love how rich and caramelly yours looks. That said, this tart was delicious, even with a runny filling, so I’ll be trying it again, properly.
