Chocolatier’s Tip

If serving just to adults, add 2 tablespoons of Amaretto to the cream for a bit of a kick!

Easy
6 - 8 people

Ingredients

  • 180 g Lindt EXCELLENCE 70% Cocoa Dark Chocolate, chopped
  • 100 g Lindt EXCELLENCE Raspberry Intense Dark Chocolate, chopped
  • 200 g fresh raspberries, plus extra for serving
  • 1 x 22 cm all-butter sweet pastry case
  • 250 ml double cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • To decorate:
  • Shelled pistachio nuts (optional)

Method

Step 1.

Pop the chopped chocolates into a heat-proof bowl and set aside.

Step 2.

Put the pastry case onto a flat plate. Arrange the raspberries on top in an even layer - ensuring they are evenly distributed across the base.

Step 3.

Pour the cream and vanilla extract into a small saucepan and slowly bring to a simmer, stirring often.

Step 4.

Pour over the chopped chocolates and stir gently until you have a smooth melted chocolate mix (you will have flecks of raspberry pieces from the EXCELLENCE Raspberry Intense Dark Chocolate).

Step 5.

Pour the chocolate ganache over the raspberries in the pastry case and gently smooth over the top to ensure all the berries are covered and you have a smooth, even layer of chocolate ganache.

Step 6.

Leave to cool before covering and chilling for at least 3 hours - or until set.

Step 7.

Serve slices with a sprinkling of chopped pistachios and extra fresh raspberries, if wished.
