This salted caramel chocolate tart is one for the record books. It has a crumbly graham cracker crust, layered with a salted caramel stuffed with peanuts and chocolate ganache and topped with candied peanuts. It gets no better than this.
This Salted Caramel Chocolate Tart is insanely delicious. I came up with this recipe for the Eat The Culture's Black History Month Virtual Potluck! The theme this year is Afrofuturism and I could not be more excited to participate in this project with over 30 Black food bloggers.
This recipe has influences from West Africa, the chocolate and coffee notes - and then peanuts. Both candied peanut on top and the caramel layer that has peanuts added for a nice crunch. It's truly blissful. I cannot get over this creation, so much that I made it three times. For my neighbor, for my parents, and for myself. Let's talk about it!
I’m proud to collaborate with more than 30 Black recipe developers as we celebrate Black History Month 2022. This Virtual Potluck explores Black food through the lens of Afrofuturism. Our collaboration of recipes explores the intersection of the Black diaspora via culture, future, geopolitics, imagination, liberation, culture, and technology.

As I mentioned above, the theme of this years Black History Month collaboration is Afrofurturism. I love this term because it is subjective and you define what it means to you.
For me, it means integrating the foods that my grandparents and great grandparents ate with recipes that my mom taught me and putting my own spin on it. Furthermore, it's the food that my children will make for their families and so own and so forth.
This term hit a little different this year. While making this salted caramel chocolate tart, I really thought about my baby boy and what I would want him to cook for his family one day. It was such a beautiful thought - him taking my recipes and adding to it (or taking away) certain ingredients to fit his tastebuds.
Check out the recipe from last year's collab - my peanut curry braised ribs!
This salted caramel chocolate tart is nothing short of decadent. I mean you've got a buttery graham cracker crust, a sweet caramel layer with peanuts, then chocolate ganache, then meringue and chopped candied peanuts for garnish. If you're a chocolate lover, this tart is for you.
Peanuts are used in so many different cultures in Africa. From currys to desserts, it's truly a staple ingredient. In addition, The cacao bean, which is the basis of chocolate, is grown in West Africa. I wanted to tie these ingredients into this salted caramel chocolate tart and also merge in some of my favorite things to make that I grew up eating.
This salted caramel chocolate tart requires some pretty basic ingredients. See below:
I did make a quick meringue to go on top, which is technically the icing on the cake. But totally not required. If you'd like to make meringue, you simply need egg whites, sugar, and cream of tartar or white vinegar. (don't worry, you can't taste the vinegar) I'll include exact quantities below in the recipe card.
I also used a deep tart pan for this recipe. Of note, this salted caramel chocolate tart does not require any baking. So, this is technically a no bake recipe, which I love.
