I made this dessert earlier this summer and OHMYGOSH you guys. It was insane.
Or… so I was told. I made it for a work meeting. All I know is it was licked clean within an hour time span.
Thanks to Vera over at Oh My Goodness Chocolate Desserts for the easy to follow instructions and recipe. Springforms and I have a history of disasters, but this little raspberry crumble number redeemed our friendship.
PS. You should click on her link above for legitimate photos of the dessert. Much more pleasing then my kitchen lighting + iPhone snaps. Lazy at best when capturing food shots. Whatevs.
