* 4 cups fresh red raspberries
* 5 tablespoons sugar
* 2 teaspoons finely shredded orange peel
* 2 cups whipping cream
* 1/4 cup raspberry liqueur (Chambord) (optional)
* 4 squares (3-inch) bakery brownies: milk chocolate, blond, or marbled brownies cut into chunks
Set aside 8 to 10 of the berries.
In a bowl combine remaining berries, the sugar, and orange peel, place the berry mixture in a 1- to 1 1/2 quart compote dish or serving bowl.
In a chilled mixing bowl combine whipping cream and liqueur (if using). Beat with chilled beaters of an electric mixer on medium speed until soft peaks form. Spoon on top of raspberry mixture. Top the whipped cream with brownie chunks and reserved raspberries.
