This indulgent chocolate recipe combines rich chocolate with flavoursome salted caramel to delicious effect. Break through the thick chocolate layer to reveal the super sweet caramel in these tasty little puds

Ingredients

  • For the caramel
  • 30g unsalted butter
  • 100g light muscovado sugar
  • 150ml carton double cream
  • 1⁄2 level tsp salt flakes, plus extra for decoration
  • For the chocolate layer
  • 300ml carton whipping cream
  • 200g bar dark chocolate, melted
  • Few drops of vanilla extract
  • You will also need:
  • 4-5 glasses, for serving

Method

  • To make the caramel: Melt the butter in a pan and add the sugar and cream. Stir the mixture over a low heat until it dissolves, then increase the heat and simmer the sauce until it thickens slightly to a caramel consistency. Off the heat, leave the caramel to cool for about 10-15 minutes. Stir in the salt flakes. Pour the mixture into the serving glasses and leave to set.

  • To make the chocolate layer: Bring the cream to the boil and pour it over the chocolate. Add the vanilla and stir until the mixture is smooth. Pour the chocolate mixture over the caramel and leave to set. Sprinkle salt flakes over each before serving.
