Chocolate Berry Tarts Recipe

I sometimes use ready-made graham tart shells if I'm short on time. Either way, this rich berry dessert is an elegant treat. —Louise Gilbert, Quesnel, British Columbia
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + chilling YIELD:2 servings


  • 5 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1 cup chocolate graham cracker crumbs (about 5 whole crackers)
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 3 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup fresh blackberries
  • 1/3 cup fresh raspberries
  • Confectioners' sugar


  • 1. In a small microwave-safe bowl, melt 4 tablespoons butter; stir in cracker crumbs and sugar. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of two 4-in. fluted tart pans with removable bottoms. Freeze for 1 hour or until firm.
  • 2. In a small saucepan, combine the cream, cinnamon and remaining butter. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat; stir in chocolate chips until melted. Pour into crusts. Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour.
  • 3. Just before serving, arrange berries over filling; sprinkle with confectioners' sugar. Yield: 2 servings.
