  • Lightly whip the cream and fold into the cheese mixture.
  • Spread one baked pastry strip with the raspberry jam and top with the cream cheese mixture.

  • Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of hot water.
  • Spread the icing evenly over the mille feuilles and pipe thin parallel lines of chocolate on the icing.
  • Drag at regular intervals with the tip of a knife to give a feathered effect. Allow to set.
