mini baileys salted caramel chocolate tarts | a recipe.

My approach to baking seems to be to stare at my kitchen cupboards long enough to work out what I can make from the ingredients I have. I will do anything to stop myself from walking to Tesco, even if I do only live next door. These Baileys salted caramel chocolate tarts come from one of those moments - I had one of these salted caramel pots sitting around in my fridge which was just asking to be used. I'd also put a bet on lots of people having a bottle of Bailey's kicking about in the house too, perhaps a leftover relic from Christmas.

You can mix your approach to these quite easily. For example, if you want to make something a little fancy but don't have a lot of time, you can buy the pastry cases and the salted caramel without too much of an issue and then instead of baking, it's more of a case of assembling. But neither of those things are actually all that difficult to make either. It's entirely up to whatever you feel up to and what your time constraints are.

Let me know if you give them a try, they're incredible, promise.
