A lighter, yet still decadent chocolate raspberry sauce. I have also used strawberry jam (light double fruit) instead of raspberry jam which turned out very well! I also omit the framboise.

So good! I bought some vanilla ice cream just for this sauce, and wasn't disappointed! Can't wait to try with strawberry jam (and cherry...the list goes on).
