Here's how easy it is...
  1. Preheat oven to 200°C (180°C with fan) Gas mark 6.

    Line a tart dish with the pastry and blind bake for 10 – 15 minutes till cooked and beginning to turn golden.

    Remove from the oven and allow to cool before removing the baking beans.
  2. To blind bake: Lightly grease a tart case then line with a thin layer of pastry.

    Cut a circle of baking paper an inch larger than the tart.

    Line the pastry with baking paper and then fill with baking beans; this will weigh down the pastry as it cooks.

    Bake until cooked and turning golden round the edges. 

  3. Turn the oven down to 160°C (140° C with fan) Gas mark 3.

    Add the Carnation caramel, chocolate and eggs to a bowl.

    Mix gently until smooth (avoid making too many bubbles) and pour into the tart case.
  4. Place in the centre of the oven for 25-30 minutes or until the filling is set and starting to rise. Remove and allow the tart to cool completely before cutting.
  5. For a shortcut baked chocolate tart, use a pre-cooked pastry case and skip straight to step 3.

    Can you make this with the caramal one too?

    Carnation says:
    Hello Clare, this recipe is wonderfully simple, the secret is the Carnation Chocolate. Maybe give Quick Banoffee Pie a go if you want to use Carnation Caramel?
