Forget about the calories – this dessert has a large helping of ‘the feel good’ factor.

Suitable for vegetarians

Dark chocolate 50g (2oz), broken into small pieces
Boiling water 4 tbsp
Fresh pineapple 2 thick slices
Double cream 90ml (3fl oz)
Your favourite liqueur such as Grand Marnier, Kirsch, Rum or Brandy
Raspberries 12
Ginger biscuits 4, crushed

1 Put the chocolate into a small bowl, add the boiling water and stir until melted.

2 Using a large plain round pastry cutter (a little smaller than the pineapple slices), cut out the flesh from each slice. Then, using a small plain round pastry cutter, remove the hard woody core. Cut the pineapple into small pieces.

3 Pour the cream into a mixing bowl, add your chosen liqueur and whisk until the cream holds a soft, floppy peak. Then gently fold in the pineapple, taking care not to over mix, as the mixture will then be too stiff.

4 Spoon the cream into two large wine glasses, alternating layers of raspberries and the melted chocolate and sprinkling the crushed biscuits over the top before the final drizzle of melted chocolate. Serve immediately.
