I love a dessert I can do in advance and this one works like a charm. I didn’t put mine in ramekins so I could display it, I just used my dessert cups. The gelatin makes the dessert a little too stiff for my liking, but the flavor is really good. I think the raspberries are a must and they pair nicely with the chocolate amaretto flavor.
