My DH is a dessert freak. So I let him pick out a new recipe for his birthday dessert. He choose this and it's a good thing he did. It was so yummy and a great change up from cakes. This is so easy to put together. I found this in Easy Home Cooking "Fun foods for kids" April/ May 2001 issue. Note Cooking time is refrigerator time.

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Stir together crumbs, cocoa and powdered sugar in medium bowl, stir in melted butter. Press mixture onto bottom and 1-1/2 inches up the side of a 9 inch spring form pan. Bake 10 minutes, cool completely.
  3. Puree and strain raspberries; set aside. Sprinkle gelatin over cold water in small bow; let stand several minutes to soften. Add boiling water; stir until gelatin dissolves completely and mixture is clear. Beat cream cheese, granulated sugar and vanilla in large bowl until smooth. Gradually add raspberry puree and gelatin, mixing thoroughly; pour into prepared crust.
  4. Refrigerate several hours or overnight. Loosen cake from side of pan with knife; remove side of pan. Spread raspberry preserves over top. Garnish with Chocolate Whipped Cream. Cover; refrigerate leftovers.
  5. Chocolate Whipped Cream: Stir together 1/2 cup powdered sugar and 1/4 cup Hershey's Cocoa in medium bowl. Add 1/2 pint chilled whipping cream and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract; beat until stiff.
