Home made Caramel & Chocolate Custard Tart

Yummy caramel and chocolate custard tart. Original recipe from BBC Food. I adapted it and doubled it and added a few things to make it caramel custard and chocolate custard.

Ingredients for home made Custard:
1L Milk
30ml Vanilla Essence
240ml Caster Sugar
8 Eggs, yolks only
90ml Cornflour
90ml Butter

Ingredients for the Caramel Custard Layer:
1 Can of Caramel

Ingredients for the Chocolate Layer:
200g Chocolate cut up into blocks.

Ingredients for the base of the tart:
250g Crushed Biscuits
50g Melted Butter

Method:
Whisk together the sugar, egg yolks and cornflour together in a bowl.

Heat up the milk in the microwave for 5 to 10 minutes, till warm. While whisking add in the cornflour and egg mixture.

Place the mixture into a pan on the stove and cook the mixture over a gentle heat, stirring continuously, until the mixture becomes thick. It will just come to the boil.

Remove from the heat and pass the mixture through a sieve into a clean bowl. Add the butter and stir until melted and throughly combined.

Devide the custard into two bowls. In the one bowl add in the can of caramel and fold in till well combined.

In another bowl, add in the 200g of chocolate blocks. Fold into the custard, until well combined.

In a glass bowl, add in 250g of crushed biscuits. Mix together with the 50g of melted butter. Mix together with a fork, so no clumbs form.

Press into a prepared tart pan and place into the fridge.

Remove the tart pan and pour over the caramel custard. Spread evenly using a spatula till the base is well covered.

Pour over the chocolate custard and spread evenly using a spatula. Place into the fridge overnight, till set. Serve with a dollop of fresh, whipped cream and enjoy!
