Fresh Berry Tarts
1 box VIP frozen tart shells or premade 9-inch pie crust
3 ounces dark chocolate

Bake the tart shells or pie crust according to package instructions. Cool completely. Melt the chocolate in a double-boiler or the microwave. Brush the chocolate over the sides and bottom of the pastry. Let set. Fill with the fruit. Place the jam in a saucepan with 2 tablespoons water. Warm gently and stir until smooth. Cool slightly, and then spoon the jam over the tarts to glaze. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Garnish with whipped cream or powdered sugar.
