Mini Raw White Mulberry Caramel Tartlette for Two

Vivapura recently sent me some white mulberries to try, and ever since then I have been in love with them. They have a wonderful caramel flavor that you would not expect from a berry, and therefore I have been using them in recipes that pair well with caramel such as in my Raw Mulberry Pecan Crunch Chocolates, and Vegan Mulberry Date Oatmeal Pecan Cookies. Since they are caramelly, I had to try using them in raw a caramel too!  I knew they would give it a wonderful flavor. I use raw caramel in a lot of desserts as a garnish, but I wanted it to be the star this time with my special ingredient.
I thought about making a large scale dessert, but since white mulberries are so precious, and I simply wanted to make a dessert large enough for two so I could share it with Eric, I made a mini tartlette.  Just a simple crunchy crust, and a really simple white mulberry date caramel that came together in less than a minute in my blender.  Altogether a super fast dessert that I made in 30 minutes.  Let me tell you, that caramel was luscious, and what did not make it into the crust, I scraped every last bit out of the blender to enjoy.  It tasted like caramel with a hint of white chocolate thanks to the special white mulberries.

It was the perfect size for two to share, and it was well worth the quick prep to make. And...if you are a big sweets person, you could totally take this down yourself and I would not blame you. It is that good.  If you have never tried white mulberries in caramel, you are missing out.  Get on it people!
