Fruit Medley with Chocolate Sauce & Spicy Cream Topping

Yummy dessert in minutes!

Now tell me, could you resist this?

Don't panic!! Now stay with me. This recipe looks far more complicated that it really is. I promise!!! 

Here is my recipe for this gorgeous dessert:

4  large strawberries, washed & roughly chopped
1/2 cup blueberries, washed
1/2 cup blackberries, washed
Chocolate Sauce:
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup heavy (whipping) cream
Spicy Cream Topping:
3/4 cup heavy cream, divided
2 tablespoons sugar
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

This is how I put this dessert together:

Fruit Preparation:
1. Wash and dry each of the three types of fruit. Place each type in a separate bowl.

2. Using four stemmed wine glassed, place one layer of each type of berry in each wine glass. Be sure the strawberries are placed between  layers of the blueberries and blackberries. Set aside.

Chocolate Sauce:
3. Place chocolate chips and heavy cream in the top of a double boiler or in a heat resistant bowl over boiling water. Stir occasionally until dissolved.

Cream Sauce:
4. While the chocolate chips are melting, place 1/2 cup of heavy cream in a small bowl, Add sugar and cayenne. Stir to thoroughly combine. Set aside.

5. Beat remaining 1/4 cup heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Reserve one or two berries of choice for each glass.

Final Preparation:
6. Spoon 1/4 of chocolate sauce over  berries in each of the four wine glasses. Repeat with cream sauce. Garnish with a spoonful of whipping cream and top each with a berry or two.
