  1. Pour 200ml of the cream, the milk and caster sugar into a saucepan. Add the vanilla extract, stir well and bring to a simmer.

  2. Add the chocolate, olive oil and 2 tbsp of the orange liqueur and remove from the heat immediately. Allow to sit for a minute or two, then stir well until smooth – you don’t want to overheat the cream.

  3. Divide half the raspberries between serving cups/glasses then pour the chocolate mixture over the top and tap to settle any air bubbles.

  4. Set aside to cool for 1 hour, then top with the remaining cream, raspberries and a drizzle of orange liqueur.

  5. If you want to make in advance, store in the fridge for up to 3 days, but remove 1 hour before serving to just soften.
