Caramel Cups

Time for a nice Wednesday pick-me-up. These are a little left over invention of mine. They are so simple and use store cupboard ingredients. But, most importantly, they are absolutely scrumptious. Consider them to be caramel shortbread but in a pastry cup. Yum!

To make you caramel cups – take some shortcrust pastry (I used leftovers from another pie. My pastry was also infused with orange zest). Shape the pastry into cupcake tins and bake as normal. Take out and leave to cool. You can do this a few days in advance if you’d like and add your filling later. Or even just buy your pastry cups ready made. Next add a generous table spoon of dulch de leche (caramel sauce) to each of your cups. Smooth out the top and finish with pouring some dark melted chocolate on top. Leave to cool and there you have it. You’re ready for the week 😀

      Thanks, for the pastry you need: 350g of plain flour, 200g of butter (cut into pieces), 100g of icing sugar, the zest of one orange. Blitz all this together in a food processor (or crumb it by hand) and at the end add one egg yolk to bind it. As for how long to bake it for I did mine at 170 degree C but kept an eye on them until they were golden. Enjoy!

    Those looks delicious! I’m afraid I would eat a bunch all at once and then feel sick! Caramel is just too good!
