I Heart Cooking Clubs : Potluck - Chocolate, Dried Fruit and Nuts Tart


This week is Potluck time at I Heart Cooking Clubs so if you check the blog you'll find all sorts of recipes !
I had a dinner with all my High School friends on Friday and brought some dessers but this tart was so welcomed or better it was kidnapped and Fabio didn't want to let it out of the kitchen !
The crust follows this recipe. I used half of it and prebaked it in a rectangular pan.
It is then scattered with any kind of dried fruit and toasted nut (I used dried apricots, raisins, almonds and hazelnuts) and covered with a ganache made with 285 grams heavy cream heated with 2 Tbs dark brown sugar and mixed with 200 grams dark chocolate.
I got the recipe from 'Ministry of Food', but my copy is in italian so I do not know the original name for the tart (Torta di cioccolato, frutta e nocciole).
