Seriously Chocolatey COCONUT CARAMEL TART

An unctuous rich butter pastry tart filled with mouth wateringly sweet coconut caramel.

What makes it the ultimate summer Seriously From Waitrose dessert?

It is one of those desserts where everyone wants seconds, even those who profess not to be sweet toothed. The entire dessert vanishes at one sitting and it is an excellent follow-on to summer barbecues or al fresco meals.
