Chocolate caramel clementine tart

tartI shlepped back from our trip a variety of food related items.  Two of them were a bottle of chocolate caramel from Auer, the oldest chocolate shop in Nice and a bottle of clementines that have been soaking in Grand Marnier from Provence.

We had friends over for dinner and I wanted to whip up a quick dessert.  I had puffed pastry in the freezer so it made my life simple.  I defrosted it in the fridge that morning.  I made a shell with the pastry, baked it and let it cool in the late afternoon.  Then I took the jar of chocolate caramel and brushed it over the bottom of the tart.  Then I took the clementines and spread them over the top.  I baked it for about 20 minutes at 350 to set it.

It was delicious.  You could do this with anything.  Chocolate sauce, sliced bananas, sauteed apples, etc.  Makes for a quick and yummy dessert that people think you spent hours on.
