  3. Pour Oreo mixture into your prepared tin and press down gently to form an even layer. Pop in the fridge.
  4. Place chocolate in a large heatproof bowl and melt in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds, until smooth and creamy. Leave for a few minutes to cool slightly.

  6. To serve, decorate with extra whipped cream and fresh raspberries. Serve cold.

Notes

*To check if your cream is whipped – you should be able to tip the bowl upside down with any cream moving.
