Then being careful as this will be very hot, pour the caramel evenly over the baked base, then cover and leave to set over night at room temperature.
Make the chocolate topping.
Prepare a sauce pan with water bring to a simmer, put the plain chocolate into the heat proof bowl and place onto the pan. After a few minutes the chocolate will start to melt. At this point start stirring it until it has melted completely, then pour over the caramel evenly.
