Rich Truffle Wedges Recipe

Rich Truffle Wedges Recipe

I've made and served this decadent dessert numerous times - to the delight of guests and family. It has a fudgy consistency and big chocolate taste. The tart raspberry sauce complements the flavor and looks lovely spooned over each slice. -Patricia Vatta, Norwood, Ontario
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. + cooling Bake: 25 min. + cooling YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 6 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 3 eggs
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • GLAZE:
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • SAUCE:
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen unsweetened raspberries
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • Whipped cream, fresh raspberries and mint, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a microwave or double boiler, melt butter and chocolate; stir until smooth. Cool for 10 minutes. In a bowl, beat eggs, sugar, vanilla and salt until thickened, about 4 minutes. Blend in chocolate mixture. Stir in flour; mix well.
