Ingredients
  • 3/4  cup 
    raspberry jam
  • 1   tablespoon 
    raspberry liqueur or orange juice
  • 3   ounces 
    semisweet chocolate
  • 1   ounce 
    bittersweet chocolate
  • 2   tablespoons 
    honey
  • 1   tablespoon 
    brandy or orange juice
  • 2 1/2  cups 
    whipping cream
  •  
    Chocolate curls or grated chocolate
Directions
1.
In a small saucepan heat the jam over low heat until melted, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Stir in raspberry liqueur or orange juice; set aside to cool completely.
2.
In another small saucepan heat chocolates over low heat until melted and smooth. Remove from heat. Stir in the honey, brandy or orange juice, and 1 tablespoon of the whipping cream until well combined. Transfer mixture to a large bowl and set aside to cool completely.
3.
In a chilled, large mixing bowl beat the remaining whipping cream until stiff peaks just form. Remove 1 cup of the whipped cream and set aside. Stir 1/2 cup of the whipping cream into the chocolate mixture to lighten. Fold remaining whipped cream into the cooled chocolate mixture.
4.
Spoon the chocolate mixture into 6 stemmed wine glasses or dessert dishes. Top with reserved whipped cream. Spoon cooled raspberry sauce over and top with chocolate curls. Cover and chill for 1 to 6 hours. Makes 6 servings.
Tip
  • For chocolate curls, slowly draw a vegetable peeler across the edge of a bar of semisweet or milk chocolate. It works best if chocolate is at room temperature.
