Sweet temptations when berries are at their very best.

Top Review by Crafty Lady 13

So quick and easy to put together and also made a great looking dessert. I didn't have brandy extract so I used vanilla extract. I also used a combination of strawberries, blackberries and blueberries. The cream cheese and hint of coffee flavor were a wonderful addition. I used a mint chocolate candy bar for the shaved chocolate. Yum! Made for Summer, 2009 Photo Tag. Update: This recipe is in my Top Favorites of 2009 Cookbook.
