Favorite Ingredient Friday


Today is the Valentine's Day Chocolate Edition of Favorite Ingredient Friday...I can't wait to save all these yummy chocolate recipes that are out there!

Chocolate Cream Angel Slices With Cherry-Berry Sauce
A cloud of chocolate-scented whipped cream with a luscious berry sauce floats on angel food cake.

Sauce
1. 1 can (21 oz) cherry pie filling
2. 1 cup frozen whole raspberries (from 12- to 14-oz bag)
3. 2 tablespoons amaretto, if desired

Angel Slices
1. 2 oz semisweet chocolate
2. 1 cup whipping cream
3. 1 tablespoon amaretto, if desired
4. 1 loaf (10.5 oz) angel food cake (about 7x3x3 inch)

Topping
1. 8 teaspoons chocolate-flavored syrup

Directions
1. In small bowl, mix all sauce ingredients. Cover; refrigerate until serving time.
2. In 1-quart saucepan, heat chocolate over low heat, stirring occasionally, just until melted. Remove from heat. Stir in 1/4 cup of the whipping cream.
3. In medium bowl, beat remaining 3/4 cup whipping cream with electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form. Beat in chocolate mixture and amaretto. Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate up to 2 hours.
4. To serve, cut cake into 8 slices; place on individual dessert plates. Spoon about 1/3 cup sauce over each slice. Top each with about 1/4 cup chocolate cream mixture; drizzle with 1 teaspoon chocolate syrup.
