1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine cocoa and fruit jam and simmer for 1-2 minutes to cook the cocoa. Watch carefully, and reduce heat if necessary as mixture will burn quickly.
2. Place beans and cocoa mixture in a food processor or whir with an emulsion hand blender until very smooth.
3. In a medium bowl, whip cream with sugar until stiff peaks form. Reserve about 1/2 cup (125 mL) for topping dessert if desired.
4. Fold bean mixture into remaining whipped cream just until blended.
5. Fill individual serving dishes or layer with fresh fruit in a larger bowl. Chill before serving. Serve with additional whipped cream and fruit, if desired.
