I loved these, made them a couple of weeks ago and twice since but forgot to review them. It is amazing what port does to the berries, i don't even like port as a drink but it turns them into absolute decadent deliciousness

mmmmmmmmm is the only way to describe this baby! I had a bunch of "left over" fruits from yesterdays lunch. Made this exactly as written except omitted the blackberries because I did not have any of thouse on hand, other than that I followed as written with very good results. My whole family loved this dessert.
