Then roll your dough out on a lightly floured work surface to line a Mason Cash Bakewell 24cm Quiche Dish, pricking several times with a fork. Cool in the fridge for at least half an hour.

Step 2

Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas 6 (180°C fan) then blind bake the pastry case for 15 minutes by lining it with foil or baking parchment and filling with Mason Cash 600g Ceramic Baking Beans. Remove the beans and foil and bake for a further five minutes until golden to prevent a soggy bottom.

Once set, top with grated chocolate, chocolate chips and smashed caramel. Enjoy!
