Caramel Chocolate Mousse Tart...

The test kitchen is creating quite a few tarts of late!
And this Caramel Chocolate Mousse combination is a keeper!
 The ingredients are convenient - a packet of vanilla biscuits, a pot of thickened cream, easy melt chocolate and a tin of ready to eat caramel.
 Once you have prepped your biscuit base and it is in the fridge. 
Whip up a chocolate mousse using a hand mixer to beat to fluffiness.
 Fold in the egg whites and gelatin and set aside while you...
 dollop delicious caramel onto the biscuit base.
Level the caramel layer with a spatula,
then top with the mousse.
Leave in the refrigerator for at least four hours.
 Decorate the top as desired.
I used a cake stencil and icing sugar.
 Slice into portions...
 And serve with a dribble of fresh cream.
The Caramel Chocolate Mousse Tart is a quick to make dessert for special occasions.
 It makes a large tart so will serve about 10 people.
