12 Days of Holiday Sweets: Chocolate Caramel Tart

In our April 2009 issue, our executive food editor, Todd Coleman, wrote about his love for Marlow & Sons, a local restaurant adjacent to his Brooklyn neighborhood. We featured the restaurant’s chocolate caramel tart on our cover: oozing caramel topped with a solid layer of chocolate and sprinkled with sea salt. Back in the springtime, when we eagerly devoured the many iterations made in our test kitchen, we had little resistance to overindulging on this near-perfect tart. We guarantee you that your holiday guests will equally powerless to resist this showstopper dessert. —The Editors
