For the love of chocolate with a Classic Twist

When it comes to desserts my feet are both firmly planted in the chocolate category.  Chef Karen Blanche from Guvon Academy shared her recipe and demonstrated how to make her Salted Caramel Brittle Chocolate Torte on #GrootFM this morning

This Torte is so good and sinful that it should be forbidden.  It is all about flavour, colour and texture sheathed in extreme opulence. The sea salt really complements the taste of the chocolate and deepens its flavour.  Certain occasions call for luxurious indulgence with quiet restraint. Just like a LBD (little black dress) that is chic with just a smattering of sass, this swoon-worthy dessert is the quintessential must-have as the ultimate trump card to your dinner party success.  .

Get your daily dose of sweetness with this sinfully delicious salted caramel brittle chocolate tart that is quietly elegant, outrageously rich yet deceptively simple to make.

It would be just plain wrong not to share this recipe with you.
