FRUIT GANACHE BAR


I love chocolate desserts. Who doesn’t? And this is a quick recipe for your sudden chocolate cravings made with biscuits covered with chocolate ganache and decorated with the fruit of your choice. There are lots of variations that you can make depending upon the season and the fruits you like. You can also top with a dollop of cream if you are not a fruit fan.

This dessert can be made into these bars, as a pie or tart. The taste will be the same – divine !

SERVES 8 – 10 

INGREDIENTS

For the Base
Marie biscuits/Graham Crackers 200 gms crushed
Raisins 1/4 cup
Vanilla Extract 1/2 tsp

For Ganache
Dark Chocolate 250gms (I used Morde)
Fresh Cream 200 ml (I used Amul)

For Decoration
Orange 1
A few Grapes
You can chose kiwi, cherry, strawberry or any other fruit of your choice

METHOD

To make Ganache
Heat cream on a very low heat in a heavy bottomed pan. When it’s ready, it should be very hot, but not boiling, and tiny bubbles will appear along the edges of the surface.
Pour the cream over the chopped dark chocolate and let it stand for 10 minutes.
Mix until thick and smooth ganache is formed.
Let this cool completely at room temperature.

For the Crust
Place the biscuits in a food processor and pulse to form fine crumbs.
Add Vanilla extract and raisins in it.
Mix a little more than half of the ganache with the crushed biscuits. (Just enough to bind the mixture together)

Finale

Line a loaf pan with parchment paper and press the crust mixture into the base of the pan.
Freeze the pan for 10 minutes till set.
De-mould the crust on a wire rack. Keep a tray underneath the rack.
Heat the remaining ganache , if need be add a tsp of water.
Pour the ganache over the crust and level it on the sides with a palette knife.
Refrigerate it for 10-15 minutes till set.
Slice the dessert into bars and decorate with the fresh fruit of your choice. I have used Orange and Grapes.
Serve cold.
