Chop 1 ounce dark or semi-sweet chocolate. Whip 4 ounces whipping cream with 2 tsp sugar and 1/2 tsp vanilla extract.

Layer the raspberries, whipped cream, and chopped chocolate in serving glasses or bowls. To garnish, sprinkle with grated chocolate or crushed pistachios. To make the dessert healthier, you can substitute whipped cream with plain Greek yogurt.
