Raspberries were my pick. So from my side, I have made these cute little Chocolate Dipped Raspberries. Well a little confession time here, I was going to make a Raspberry Jam. But after 3 failed attempts, I gave up. I was so frustrated that day, that I needed a chocolate fix. I grabbed this packet of chocolate covered dried raspberries that we recently bought from a store. They were amazingly delicious and munching on these surely lifted my spirit. So I thought why not try these with fresh raspberries.
The very next day I made this recipe. I have just dipped fresh raspberries in melted dark chocolate, which had some vanilla in it. Then decorated these and refrigerated them until they were set. These little treats are absolutely bites of heaven. My family loved them so much, I had to make more batches.
I am sure, you and your family and friends would enjoy these as well. These are great for kids and grown-ups too. For a grown-up version, add some chocolate liquor in the melted chocolate and dip raspberries in it. Isn’t that tempting? These are perfect little treats for any theme gathering. They make an impressive hostess gift too. How about saving this recipe for upcoming holiday parties? For any occasion, these would be great to serve and enjoy. For now, they are my night time chocolate fix. Try them soon.
Let’s go through the recipe.
- 1 cup dark chocolate candy melts/ chips
- 1 cup fresh raspberries
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- ½ tsp oil
- Edible decor as needed
- Start by washing raspberries and pat them try.
- Line a tray or dish with parchment paper or wax paper.
- In a double broiler, add dark chocolate and melt. You can do this microwave too.
- Once melted add the vanilla extract and oil. Stir well.
- Now dip a raspberry in the melted dark chocolate, coating just half of it. Sprinkle the edible decor on the chocolate coated raspberry and keep it on the parchment paper.
- Repeat this with rest of the raspberries.
- Once done, transfer these to the refrigerator to set (till chocolate hardens)
- They are ready to serve.
