Ready In:
1hr 40mins
1 terrine




  • Melt the chocolate on top of a double boiler. (if no double boiler, heat some water on a saucepan, not boiling, and use a mixing bowl that can withstand heat. place the mixing bowl on top of the hot water and, using a whisk, stir the chocolate until melted. ).
  • In a small saucepan, mix the espresso and heavy cream and boil. Once boiled,whisk it into the chocolate.
  • Before you put any of the chocolate on the mold, you must line with plastic wrap so you can take the terrine out when ready. To do this, cut of as much plastic wrap as you think you need. Pour a little oil on one side of the wrap and with a pastry brush, spread it until the whole side is oiled. Place the wrap, oil side down, on your mold. Make sure there's some wrap hanging down on the side to make sure you can pull it out of mold later.
  • Place half the chocolate mixture into your mold and place in freezer until solid, 20-30 minutes.
  • Once the chocolate is solid, place as many raspberries as you'd like to cover the solid chocolate. Cover with remaining chocolate mixture (if that mixture has also become solid, just place on top of double boiler again. ).
  • Freeze until solid. Once you are getting ready to serve, place some parchment or wax paper on a plate. Pull the plastic wrap out carefully ( run some hot water outside the mold if it helps to loosen it) place the terrine on top of your plate, getting rid of the wrap. Serve with a few fresh raspberries on top.

<p>I don't really like answering about me sections, but here goes nothing.....I live in Chicago, IL. Went to culinary school. Used to work in a french restaurant in Downtown Chicago as a pastry chef but now I am a stay at home mom. I went to school for cuisine, not pastry, and actually I am much better at cuisine, however I've always wanted to study more pastry. I am not bad at it, I'm actually very good (tooting my own horn), but everyone says I have a natural talent for cuisine. Either way, I love cooking because it is my meditative time. However, when I cook at home, no one dares to walk into the kitchen because I am very bossy and they would rather not deal with me....heehee! <br />I also love to craft, read, and write. I write a lot. Been working on short stories lately, but I've always been more of a poem freak. I love to read....I have a massive collection of books....every type of book. They are mostly cook books and poetry collections, but I also love history, religion, drama, suspense, romance (not the cheesy kind, my favorite book of all time is love in the time of cholera by gabriel garcia marquez, I have yet to see the movie), mystery, murder mystery (second favorite book is and then there were none by agatha christie). <br />And my rambling continues....I come from a small family, I suppose, 1 brother 1 sister and my parents. My brother is married with 3 kiddies, my sister is a single mom of 1. I am engaged to the love of my life. To clarify, engaged is in parentheses because we cannot legally get married yet. I am a lesbian and I am very hopeful to the legalization of gay marriage because I would marry my girlfriend in a heartbeat. We have a 5 year old son, Joel,and a daughter from her previous relationship, Ashley, 12. I will post some pictures on here as soon as I have some time. Enough rambling....thanks for reading, if you actually stayed awake through the whole thing. <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /><a href= target=_blank><img src= alt= /></a></p>
