Prepare Raspberry Sauce by bringing juice to a boil in a small saucepan. Add cornstarch and whisk to incorporate; cook until thickened. Sauce may be made in advance and refrigerated.

in a small microwave-safe bowl, combine chocolate chips and butter. Microwave on high, stirring at 20-second intervals until melted and smooth. In another small bowl, combine cream cheese and confectioners' sugar; beat until smooth.

Assemble by placing 2 tablespoons of Raspberry Sauce on each dessert plate. Place 1 or 2 phyllo shells on sauce. In each shell place a teaspoon of cream chees mixture and a teaspoon of chocolate mixture. Serve immediately, or store in refrigerator up to 1 hour.

If desired, decorate with shaved chocolate, or Betty Crocker's Real Chocolate Dessert Decorations (available in most grocery stores).
