Salted Caramel is in a league of its own, am I right? If you don’t believe me {other than this recipe}, try these Chocolate Salted Caramel Cupcakes. or these Salted Caramel Skillet Brownies. Spectacular!

Another one that I love to make, because the kids go crazy for it is these Chocolate Cake Cups with Salted Caramel Ice Cream. YUM!

If you take inventory of the food items I always have on hand, one of them is Windsor Salt. This mineral is used for cooking and baking, to cleaning, a remedy for sore throats, and even as an ant deterrent. Needless to say, salt is a kitchen staple that I use daily.

Yet more often than not, it’s my cooking and baking sidekick, whether used right in a recipe or added after to finish off the taste. Recently I found a recipe for Blueberry Salted Caramel Tarts on the Windsor Salt website and knew it was one that I had to make.

Summer is approaching and thus, fresh affordable berries are becoming more readily available. Blueberries is one such berry that I literally crave, so I’m stockpiling new blueberry recipes because I know very soon I’ll be buying a gigantic box from our local market.

I recently made these Easy Blueberry Pie Bars, and they taste phenomenal!

You’ll notice this recipe has a number of steps; since you are actually making the tarts, salted caramel sauce and the mousse separately. Don’t let the length deter you though, I guarantee it’s worth the extra time in preparation.
