Spread jam on only one side of each slice of bread and position jam-side down in baking dish until the slices of bread are snug. Pour the mixture over bread.
Sprinkle in and around each slice of bread with the chopped chocolate. Let stand for 30 minutes to allow bread to soak up the mixture.
Meanwhile preheat the oven to 320°F. In a small saucepan combine the 1 cup of raspberries with the ¼ cup sugar and 2 tbsps of water. Let simmer for about 5 minutes on medium high heat, stirring constantly, until the desired consistency is reached. (The sauce will thicken further as it cools.) With a fine sieve strainer, strain the sauce to remove any seeds. Let cool.
