  • Hello I Heart Nap Time readers! I’m Taryn from Design, Dining + Diapers and it’s so great to be back here. I have been loving all of the fun crafts and recipes already shared during the “Hello Summer” series and I’m so excited to be part of it. Today, I’m sharing an easy summer dessert that my family just loves, a Chocolate Cream Cheese Pie with Fresh Raspberries.

    This dessert is extremely easy to make and can be made in advanced or right before your guests arrive!

    I’ve also made this with fresh strawberries on top instead of the raspberries and it was equally as yummy! There are so many options.
