Chocolate Berry Tarts

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

    The nutrition info is correct (for the measurements listed.) However, I find the measurements for the crust to be off. To make a 2-serving tart: 1/2 cup of graham cracker crumbs, 1 tsp of sugar and 2 1/2 tbsp butter. The nutrition info for each is: 564 calories, 40 g of total fat, 68 mg cholesterol, 211 mg sodium, 56 g total carb, 20 g sugar. A decadent dessert, but for someone without diet restrictions :D

    I think the nutrition info is wrong; I'm guessing it's about half of what is reported on the recipe.

    I agree with bubala -- 796 calories for 1 dessert!!! If that's not a mistake, it definitely needs a makeover.
