Berries with White Chocolate Sauce

Berries with White Chocolate Sauce
600 gr 4 field berry mix, frozen

Sauce:
3/4 cup pure white chocolate chips (6 ounce)
3/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 tsp almond extract

Garnish:
1/4 cup almond, blanched, sliced

Pour some water in a small pot and heat it up over medium-low heat. Place the chocolate and heavy cream in a glass bowl. Place this bowl in the the pot with the boiling water. Stir occasionally. Melt the chocolate and cream mixture.

Leave the frozen berries out for 30-35 minutes at room temperature in a service plate. Pour the hot sauce over the berries. Sprinkle almonds on top. Serve immediately with a spoon.

I've cooked this Ina Garten recipe from her TV show a few times for my family, and we all loved it. I wanted to share with you after adding a bit of a Turkish touch with the almond extract and almond slices:)
