On large platter, spread Cookie Chips in a single layer over entire plate. Chips should overlap. Blend yogurt a bit to soften so it spreads easily. Pour yogurt over Cookie Chips and with knife or spatula spread evenly. Leave edges a little exposed. Set aside.
Cut fruit into small dice sized pieces and set aside to make ganache. Once ganache is ready. Sprinkle fruit over top of yogurt evenly. With a spoon, drizzle ganache over top of fruit as seen in the picture.
Place chocolate in bowl and set aside. Place cream in small pot and bring to a boil. Immediately shut off heat and pour over chocolate in bowl. Allow chocolate cream mixture to sit one minute to soften chocolate. With fork or whisk, blend cream into chocolate until a dark ganache is formed. Extra ganache can be stored, covered in the refrigerator for 5 to 7 days. To reuse, warm gently over a water bath or in microwave until softened. Can be used over ice cream.
