Mini Granola Chocolate Fruit Tarts

My fridge is full of berries and I love it!
Summer is the best!

After dinner  I was craving something sweet, but healthy too.
Is that too much to ask??
I remembered seeing chocolate fruit tartlets on SkinnyTaste a few days ago and
thought they looked so yummy so I made my own version.

Sweet tooth problem solved :)

Granola Dark Chocolate Fruit Tarts

I wanted bite size treats so I used a Pampered Chef mini muffin pan.  I also used a tart
shaper to make the indentation for the chocolate filling.  That pan is the best!  I use it all
the time.

I didn't have any graham crackers since we have been making firepit s'mores a lot this
summer, but I did have Purely Elizabeth granola, so I improvised.
I also used Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate Melting Wafers since I was out of heavy cream
and they are so easy to use.  I love them!

I loved the way they turned out!
Bite sized chocolate fruity goodness.
And pretty healthy too for dessert.
