Stir in one half portion of the seedless raspberries into the mixture

Pour mixture into pie crust

Bake at 325 for 40 minutes until almost set (may need a few extra minutes depending on oven)

TOPPING

Pour sour cream mixture onto pie

Spoon remaining seedless raspberry portion onto pie and swirl a toothpick or small knife to make a spiral pattern

Bake another 10 to 12 minutes

Cool completely on a wire rack

DECORATION

Cut remaining whole raspberries in half and arrange one circle on the outside of pie then make a heart shape in the middle of the pie with the cut raspberries

Soften the chocolate bard slightly in the microwave (10 seconds at a time)

Take a potato peeler and scrape the sides of the bar to make small chocolate curls

Place the chocolate curs on the outside of the heart shape all around the heart

Refrigerate 3 hours or overnight (is best)!
