Midweek Raspberry Dessert

I made this dessert less than for 15 minutes! Needless to say, it’s a perfect treat for busy days. Don’t know about you, but I need something sweet after the main course! ­čśÇ I really miss pies or danishes, if I don’t eat them at least once a week. Exactly┬áthe same┬ásituation was yesterday┬á– the pantry was full of my fav dark chocolate, but I wanted a pie or cake!
┬áI’m a huge fan of Jamie Oliver and even consider him as my virtual mentor! ­čÖé Might you’ve seen food-videos with him and another young guy – Donal Skehan; they both provide┬áinspirational┬áideas and recipes. I love┬áraspberries! So, I chose this recipe, but adapted it, and made chocolate crust. And wow! Tartlets tasted soooo good! Reach chocolate crust along with tender berry filling gave the brilliant result! Yum!
