Here at Thought, it's a rare occasion that we bypass the opportunity to bake. Especially when it involves chocolate. So when our friends at Divine Chocolate
, asked us to take part in their #MakeSomethingDivine campaign, we of course jumped at the chance. And this time, we had some great competition. From mint chocolate cheesecakes to chilli chocolate pots, truffles to brownies, there was a truly mouthwatering array of chocolatey treats. But it was Harriet's Pistachio Raspberry & Chocolate Cheesecake that won everyone's vote. So, since it was so delicious, we decided to share this Divine chocolate recipe with you. Enjoy!
