This dessert is somewhat of a transition, it bridges the gap between too much and feeling deprived. When a bowl of raspberries doesn't sound so great to your sweet tooth, raspberries drizzled with chocolate surely does...without going over the top. Guilt free.
I like Trader Joe's Pound Plus 72% dark Belgian Chocolate. You can play around with the amounts depending on where your sweet tooth lies. This will make a drizzle that sets up as a brittle drizzle, the same texture and hardness of the original chocolate bar. If you like yours to be more pliable like a ganache, add 1 tablespoon of cream to the melted chocolate.
1.5 ounces dark chocolate
12 ounces organic raspberries
Slowly melt chocolate over low heat, stirring frequently. Carefully wash raspberries in a bowl of water and dry with paper towels. Place raspberries on silpat or parchment and drizzle with melted chocolate. Place in refrigerator 15 minutes, but no longer than 6 hours. We get 4-5 serving from this, but use your own judgement.
