Raspberry Mole with Chicken Driscolls

Created by:  Rose Marie Plashinski

Toast peppercorns, cumin, anise, vanilla and cloves in a dry skillet over medium heat, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir frequently to prevent scorching. Remove from pan.
Heat cocoa butter in same skillet over medium-high heat. Brown the chilies on all sides. Add walnuts, 170 grams of raspberries, chocolate and toasted spices. Stir until chocolate is melted and incorporated, being careful not to burn ingredients. Add broth and wine and bring to a simmer. Simmer 5 minutes or until slightly reduced.
Place mixture in a blender and puree until smooth. Strain through a mesh sieve. Season with salt.
Serve with grilled chicken breasts and cubed fried sweet potatoes. Garnish with sesame seeds and remaining raspberries.
