Sunday Cake: Milky Way Tartelettes

Mmhhhh, Milky Way Tartelettes by Maury Rubin are almost like Milky Way and are our Sunday cake today! Delicious chocolate, caramel on top and still chocolate mousse … that can only taste delicious, right? The recipe is actually quite simple, just be patient!

Milky Way Tartlets

The Milky Way Tartelettes have been waiting for weeks on our Pinterest board for little sweet sins to finally try it out. The long preparation time, which is mentioned here in the original recipe of Maury Rubin of thecitybakery , has always deterred me, but for the birthday of the man it may well be something special. That’s why I put myself in the kitchen the day before and just started! And lo and behold, it does not take that long. The individual steps are made quickly, you only have to wait a bit in between.

That’s what you need for six Milky Way Tartelettes

For the tartlets

  • 200 grams of flour
  • 60 grams of baking cocoa
  • 120 grams of butter
  • 150 grams of powdered sugar
  • 1 big egg yolk (I took two small ones)

For the caramel and the mousse

  • 100 grams of milk chocolate
  • 475 milliliters of cream
  • 60 grams of butter
  • 150 grams of sugar
  • 3 tablespoons of water

Milky Way Tartelettes – here we go. , ,

First we do the tartelettes . Simply mix the butter with the powdered sugar and add the egg yolk and stir. Then mix cocoa and flour and stir. Form into a ball, wrap in foil and bake in the fridge for two hours.

In the meantime you can prepare the mousse . Just chop the chocolate roughly and place in a bowl. Then heat 350 milliliters of the cream and pour over it. Stir with a whisk until the chocolate has dissolved and the mixture is smooth. Then allow to cool and also in the fridge. At least four hours.

In the meantime you can deal with the Tartelettes again. Grease six small tartletettes, roll out the dough and put it in! Then the whole thing has to be refrigerated for another hour, but after that you can bake it for about 12 minutes at 180 degrees in a preheated oven. The dough should then look slightly dry. The formation of bubbles is normal, you can just push in with a spoon.

The Tartelettes must cool completely. I have prepared all the steps so far in the evening and then continued with the caramel the next morning. Heat the remaining cream (130 milliliters) with the butter in a small saucepan and stir well. At the same time mix the sugar in another pot with the water and heat. And always stir well. If that’s too much for you, first heat the butter mixture and then set it aside. Bring the sugar mixture to a boil while stirring until the whole looks like liquid amber. Then add the butter and cream … it will bubble quite nicely. Remove from heat and stir well. Then you can transfer it to another container. The next three quarters of an hour but you should stir again and again.

Now you can build the Milky Way Tartelettes together. To spread the caramel on the tartlets. Then take the chocolate cream mixture out of the fridge and whip it into mousse. Distribute on the Tartelettes and the whole thing is done! You guessed it already has to go back to the fridge … but only two hours. Then some cocoa to deco on top and you can finally enjoy! Delicious!

A beautiful Sunday,
