White Chocolate & Raspberry Semifreddo

         'Semifreddo', is an Italian dessert. Semifreddo means 'half cold'. It is frozen, but because it has whipped egg whites and whipped cream folded into it, it does freeze up quite as hard as ice cream. A cheat's ice cream. It's deliciously creamy and slightly airy enough to feel it dissipate on your tongue. It's effortless and heart & soul satisfying dessert. This amazingly retro frozen dessert is just perfect for anytime. It is elegant, velvet, cozy and easily be made in advance.
