This dessert is so easy to make though it takes a little extra time and effort, tastes great and looks beautiful on the table. The blend of berries and chocolate was light and blended wonderfully. This is an excellent elegant dessert for any get together. It is super easy and delicious! The crust is wonderfully chocolate and the filling is creamy with the raspberry glaze and strawberries on top. The vanilla flavor of the white morsels perfectly offsets the berries and I will make this again. Bring this to any gathering, and you certainly will get rave reviews.
