Salted caramel recipes you need to make immediately

We all know that the key to a great dessert, is lashings of caramel. What's even better, is lashings of caramel with a smidge of salt to offset the sweetness. Whether your ultimate weakness is a cake, torte, brownie, brittle or tipple we've got the salted caramel recipe of your dreams...

Salted caramel tortes and tarts

This salted caramel chocolate torte is the only dinner party dessert you'll ever need. It's a sure-fire showstopper and is deceptively easy to make, which is everything we require from a dessert. If you want something with a buttery pastry rather than a crunchy biscuit base, try our chocolate, hazelnut & salted caramel tart. It's studded with nuts and has an addictive fudge filling.
