- 1 cup dark chocolate, finely chopped
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1/2 cup fresh raspberries
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup chocolate shavings, for garnish
- Place the finely chopped dark chocolate in a heatproof bowl.
- In a saucepan, heat the heavy cream over medium heat until it just starts to boil.
- Pour the hot cream over the chopped chocolate. Let it sit for a minute to soften the chocolate.
- Gently whisk the chocolate and cream together until smooth and glossy.
- Cover the chocolate ganache with plastic wrap, ensuring it touches the surface to prevent a skin from forming. Refrigerate for 2 hours.
- In a separate bowl, combine the fresh raspberries and granulated sugar. Let them macerate for about 15 minutes.
- Using parfait glasses, layer the chocolate ganache and macerated raspberries alternately.
- Repeat the layers until the glasses are filled, finishing with a layer of raspberries on top.
- Sprinkle chocolate shavings over the final raspberry layer.
- Refrigerate the parfaits for an additional hour to set before serving.
