Chocolate Chiboust with Raspberries

Valentine’s Day is a special day for people in love. This is a great dessert to share with that special someone and of course, the fresh raspberries give this creation the suitable colour of love. Tête-à-tête, an intimate ‘head to head’ represents the closeness between two people wanting to share everything together. Very fitting for Valentine’s Day wouldn’t you agree?
