This dessert is incredible. Instead of making it into a pie though, I doubled the ingredients and prepared it in a 9 x 13 pan. While I was making it, I knew it would be good, but was I wrong-it was FABULOUS!!!!! Everyone that had it mmmmmed and aahhhhhed their whole way through each bite. Outstanding recipe, thanks for sharing.
I was compelled to make this dessert after reading all the reviews. I'm a good cook who truly enjoys spending time in the kitchen...but there wasn't one person in my household of 5 who liked this dish. In fact, it sat around uneaten for quite awhile, and I ultimately threw away the last half. Considering how much we all like chocolate and desserts in general, I was really disheartened. I can't help but wonder if I did something wrong. Or perhaps that's the way it's supposed to turn out...but it's just not to our taste. And considering the numerous trips I made to various grocery stores in order to get all the ingredients, it was quite a letdown...for whatever reason.
This is a great recipe; a perfect "make-ahead" for company. I used 2.5 c of fresh raspberries and 0.25 c 10x sugar for the raspberry syrup.
WOW! Chocolate and raspberries, how much better can it get than that? I thought I had died and gone to heaven. Thanks for sharing.
This is excellent! The hardest part of this recipe was waiting the 12 hours to cut it (we only waited 8) and finding the Raspberry Syrup in my area. I never did find the syrup so I used the Raspberry Sauce (by The_Tattooed_Chef) from this site and just made it a little thicker and it worked perfectly. This is light, airy, and delicious. Everyone loved it. I will be making this again. Thanks for sharing!
Outstanding! I had to make my own raspberry syrup as others did. Smuckers.com does have it available on-line and you can search the site for the product availability near you (thank you Lindsay!). DH raved on and on and got the neighbors to come over to try this. Everyone loved it. Perfect pie for a hot day - no cooking and you feel like you are eating a chocolate raspberry cloud! UPDATE: I found raspberry syrup at Walmart in the ice cream topping section.
This was so simple and yet so tasty!
Very good! I'd like to try to make a healthy version of this. But it looked really beautiful... I used red food coloring in the whipped cream, and put raspberries and grated chocolate on top. Everyone liked it.
