Chocolate Tart Filling from Meriel of Mmm Dessert!

  • 200 grams (1 cup) sugar
  • 6 Tbsp melted butter
  • 115 grams (1⁄2 cup) heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 3⁄4 tsp sea salt



In a saucepan, heat the sugar on medium/low, stirring with a wire whisk occasionally as you heat it until dissolved and it’s a light amber color and smooth. This can take a while and it’s important to let all the crystals melt without the color getting too dark. Pull it off the heat for a bit if you see its unevenly cooking (lots of crystal bits not melting in an already too dark melted sugar.)


Lower the heat and slowly whisk in the melted butter until combined. Be careful as it can pop and splash at first.


Remove from the heat and add the cream, slowly.


Add the vanilla paste and salt and stir until combined.


Let cool in a heat proof bowl and refrigerate until you’re ready to enjoy!
