This recipe is just like me sweet, multilayered, quick to get ready and has some hootch in it lol
I came up with this because my sweetie wanted something chocolate, and I wanted something with raspberries in it. I asked him what he wanted, and thougnt well why not do BOTH?
Hence a beautiful looking dessert that satisfied both of us. —jane mcmillan
