Mini Banoffee Tarts

 I'm crazy about making tart right now. 

Esp. a tiny size one, as it's cute and easy to eat too.
Now small perforated ring tarts are easy to find on the market (and they are not expensive), and they are very suitable for making this tiny tart. As the pastry will stick to the ring, it's so neat!


I made kinds of tarts lately, but today the one that I want to share with you is banoffee tart.
I think that I can (almost) use the word triple-tested on my recipe, haha, as I had to try my recipe many times before posting.
This Banoffee is triple-tested too.
The first time that I made it I used 70% chocolate in the ganache and for brushing the pastry. (well, when writing the recipe I wanted the chocolate to cut down the sweetness of the caramel but it's too much).
The result was too chocolatey!!!
When taking banoffee, the thing that comes first should be the caramel, not the chocolate, ^^"

So, I had to make it again.
This time I use 57% chocolate and remove the ganache. 

Yes, this is the recipe that I share with you. When eating the first thing that you will find is the caramel, followed by the creaminess of the cream and banana, and the last thing is the chocolate. Well if you really love chocolate, you can use a higher percentage but for me, this combination is the best.
For the caramel sauce, I used both a timer and thermometer while testing the recipe, if using a thermometer the temperature of the caramel is 113-115C.
