Chocolate Covered Raspberries

It seems that chocolate covered strawberries get all the attention when Valentine’s Day rolls around. But if I had to choose, I’d say raspberries and chocolate are my favorite dessert combination. So why not Chocolate Covered Raspberries? 

Chocolate Covered Raspberries

Don’t get me wrong. I love chocolate covered strawberries. They’re beautiful and delicious.

But oh my goodness! I honestly can’t believe I haven’t thought to do this sooner. These chocolate covered raspberries were amazing!

You’ll want to use the largest, most firm berries you can find, just because they’ll be easier to dip. But these little chocolate raspberry morsels couldn’t have been any easier to make.

They’re also pretty easy to pop into your mouth. Repeatedly.

All I can say is “Move over chocolate covered strawberries. You’ve got competition!”

  4. i’ve made something similar before. they are delish!

  5. I love this idea, so simple, but so luscious!

  6. This is a good idea! I love raspberries, too!

  7. I’ve had these at a party and they’re addicting!! Want to do this for my own holiday celebration. I have one question though. Because of time constraints, I would like to make these the night before. How long would you suggest to have them in refrigerator? I don’t want to leave them in too long and they harden. Make sense?

    • It should be fine to do the night before. Just take them out of the fridge 30 minutes or so before serving so they come back to room temperature. The only issue might be the raspberries going soft. They tend to do that more quickly once they’ve been washed…..but I still think it would work okay.
