Add melted butter and blitz again until well combined. Press mixture into a 22cm loose-bottom tart tin and refrigerate. Pour half the cream and all the vanilla into a saucepan. Bring to the boil, remove from heat and add chocolate. Stir until chocolate has melted and mixture is smooth. Transfer chocolate mixture to a bowl. Allow to cool. Whip remaining cream, fold into cooled chocolate mixture. Spread half the chocolate mixture over biscuit base and leave to set for a few minutes. Crush raspberries with a fork and stir through icing sugar. Spread raspberry mixture over chocolate layer. Top with remaining chocolate mixture and chill tart for 1-2 hours until firm. Dust with cocoa, top with raspberries and serve.
