1/2 cup vanilla Greek yogurt
1/4 cup fresh raspberries plus additional for garnish (optional)
1/2 cup plus 1-1/2 teaspoons Food Club® Granulated Sugar
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons Food Club® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
2-1/2 tablespoons Food Club® Heavy Whipping Cream
1/2 cup Food Club® All-Purpose Flour
1/4 cup plus 1-1/2 teaspoons Food Club® Unsweetened Baking Cocoa
1 tablespoon instant espresso powder

2 large Fresh Harvest™ Grade A Large Eggs
1 teaspoon Food Club® Pure Vanilla Extract
1/4 teaspoon almond extract

1. In blender, purée yogurt, raspberries and 1-1/2 teaspoons granulated sugar; cover and refrigerate. Makes about 3/4 cup sauce.

2. In medium, microwave-safe bowl, heat chocolate and cream in microwave oven on high 30 seconds; stir until chocolate is melted. Makes about 1/4 cup chocolate mixture.

3. In medium bowl, whisk flour, 1/4 cup cocoa, espresso powder and baking powder. Brush 2 tablespoons butter in bottom and up sides of 12-cup standard muffin pan; dust with remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons cocoa. In medium, microwave-safe bowl, heat remaining 7 tablespoons butter in microwave oven on high 45 seconds or until melted; whisk in brown sugar and remaining 1/2 cup granulated sugar until combined. Whisk in eggs, 1 at a time, whisking until combined; stir in vanilla extract and almond extract. Add flour mixture; stir until just combined.

4. Divide batter into prepared muffin cups; using 2 small spoons, drop 1 teaspoon chocolate mixture in center of each cup. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 or up to 12 hours.

5. Preheat oven to 350°; let cakes stand at room temperature 5 minutes. Bake cakes 18 minutes or until tops of cakes are set; cool on wire rack 5 minutes. Makes 12 mini ganache cakes.

6. Run small knife around edges of cakes to loosen; flip cakes onto serving plates and drizzle with sauce. Garnish with raspberries, if desired.
