Chocolate caramel clementine tart
I 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.
