Blackberry-White Chocolate Fool with Toasted Hazelnuts

As in the traditional English recipe, this recipe uses a mixture of pureed blackberries and whipped heavy cream as the base for this "fool," and adds white chocolate and crème de cassis, a liqueur made with blackcurrants, to deliver even more decadence.
