chocolate tarts

These tartlets take about 10 minutes to make and another 2 hours to chill. Buy good quality ready made sweet tartlet shells (available at supermarkets) to save time. After they have been chilled, dust with cocoa on top with raspberries or strawberries or decorate with whipped cream blobbed on top with chocolate shavings.
