- 1-1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking cocoa
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- 4 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1/3 cup raspberry liqueur
- 1-3/4 cups heavy whipping cream

- 2 cups fresh raspberries
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup raspberry liqueur
- 1. In a bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, sugar, cocoa and butter; press onto the bottom and up the sides of a greased 9-in. pie plate. Bake at 375° for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack.
- 2. For filling, in a small saucepan, melt chocolate with milk; stir until smooth. Remove from the heat; set aside to cool.
- 3. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Gradually beat in liqueur and cooled chocolate mixture just until combined. In a small bowl, beat cream until stiff peaks form; fold into chocolate mixture. Pour into crust. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
