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?
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!”
