    I think this looks out of this world delicious! I love raspberry. I especially like it with chocolate, so I think a great cup of hot cocoa would be so good with it...or a cup of chocolate-raspberry coffee would be awesome as well.
    As always...Great job!!!!! Thanks for sharing.
    Can't wait for your next dessert! :D
