  • In a heavy saucepan, over a low heat, melt sugar till it get deep amber color and all crystals disappear. Add the butter piece by piece stirring continuously. Remove from heat and add the cream so so so slowly stirring with no stop. Till smooth. Keep aside to cool 5 minutes only and then pour it over the cooled crust.
  • Sprinkle with salted peanuts evenly. Keep aside to harden and cooled.
  • Topping:
  • Bring the cream to simmer point. Take care do not burn or you will get a bad taste. Once you reach simmering point, remove from heat and pour over the chopped chocolate.
  • Leave to set for 2 or 3 minutes then whisk till all chocolate melts and mixture is smooth.
  • Keep in room temperature for 1 ½ to 2 hours. Then whisk again till thickened slightly.
  • Note: It is so important to know at which point you should stop whisking, you don’t want it so thick or grainy. You need a pourable smooth texture but still thick.
