  • 4 ounces chocolate wafers (such as Nabisco Famous Chocolate Wafers)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 tablespoons 2% reduced-fat milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons unflavored gelatin
  • 10 ounce 1/3-less-fat cream cheese, softened
  • 1 1/4 cups powdered sugar

  • 1 ounce bittersweet chocolate, melted and cooled
  • 1/4 cup whipping cream
  • 1 1/2 cups raspberries

Place whipping cream in a clean bowl; beat with a mixer at high speed until stiff peaks form. Gently fold one-fourth of chocolate mixture into whipped cream. Fold whipped cream mixture into remaining chocolate mixture. Spoon chocolate mixture into prepared crust. Chill 6 hours or until set.
