    This sounds wonderful. Like you I love the combination of chocolate and raspberry. I'd posted a chocolate-raspberry pie a while ago which has hazelnuts in the crust. I've bookmarked this for when I want to indulge!

    Debated about whether or not to spend so much typing time on such a beautiful weekend. Oh well...between cooking for company, why not? Hope you enjoy it as much as I do. I also like it since it doesn't make a ridiculous amount. I hate stale cake. :(

    I wish you had posted this yesterday because I would have made this instead of the trifle I made! But as soon as it's gone I'm going to make this. It sounds delicious!
