Berries and Cream Tart with Chocolate Crust

pbMakes 8 slices/b/p
h2Chef's Note/h2
pI like the combination of raspberries and blackberries with chocolate. If you prefer, strawberries will work just as well. If you are not a chocolate fan (really?), leave out the cocoa powder. As a side note, the crust recipe will also make 18 chocolate butter-nut cookies in case there is a kid still trapped inside you./p
