Why You'll Love These Chocolate Covered Raspberries
It's no secret white chocolate and raspberry just go together. They're a match made in heaven. Adding a coat of dark chocolate to adds even more sweet flavor to this simple snack. It's the perfect treat for any weeknight, girl's night, or Valentine's Day. Make a batch of these with chewy red velvet cookies for a romantic dessert board.
- No baking required.
- Great treat to make with kids.
- They're done in under 20 minutes.
- Healthy frozen snack on demand.
- You only need 3 ingredients.
- Fresh raspberries: I recommend fresh raspberries because they're plump and juicy!
- White chocolate: any white chocolate melts well so grab chips or a bar! Pascha makes a great dairy free white chocolate! You could also use a white chocolate made with Stevia for lower sugar content like Lily's!
- Dark chocolate: I love using dark chocolate because it's a good balance of bitter to the sweet fruit and it's also naturally dairy free. Use dark chocolate chips or a dark chocolate baking bar.
How to Make Chocolate Covered Raspberries
- Wash the raspberries and gently pat them dry with paper towels, being careful to not damage or break them.
- Place the white chocolate in a medium, microwave-safe bowl and heat in the microwave for 30 seconds then stir and repeat until it's melted and smooth. You can also place the chocolate in a double boiler to melt it.
- Use a toothpick to poke the bottom of the raspberry (the closed small end) and dip the raspberry in the melted white chocolate. Do your best to fill the whole of the raspberry with chocolate.
- Place the dipped chocolate on the prepared baking sheet on its side and repeat with all fo the raspberries. When they're done, place the baking sheet in the freezer.
- While they're chilling, melt the dark chocolate the same way you did with the white chocolate. When the raspberries and white chocolate are frozen and set, repeat the process with the dark chocolate and place back in the freezer. Freeze until set and serve frozen.
Expert Recipe Tips
- Use a toothpick to dip the raspberries in the chocolate because the raspberries are so small and the chocolate can easily cover your fingers.
- Use parchment paper for easy clean up.
- Clear out room in your freezer before you begin. We're freezing an entire sheet pan so it's a great idea to have room before you start.
- Melt your chocolate in increments of 30 seconds to avoid burning.
- Let them come to room temperature for 5 minutes before you enjoy them to soften a bit. This is what I like to do with the storebought trü frü raspberries too.
When the chocolate covered raspberries are completely frozen, transfer them to an air tight container and store them in the freezer for up to one month (if they last that long!).
The best chocolate for dipping is a high quality chocolate (with a large percentage of cocoa butter). If you can find a high quality chocolate bar that's best. However, chocolate chips work too. You might need to add a bit of coconut oil to the chips to help them melt easier.
If your chocolate is too thick, you can add a teaspoon or so of coconut oil to help thin it out.
Yes, you can use chocolate chips! However, chocolate chips were created to keep their shape and withstand the heat, so you may need a little help from the coconut oil. If you're using chips, be careful not to overheat the chocolate and don't forget to heat in increments. Have some coconut oil on stand by if you need it!
More Fruit to Dip
We think chocolate covered raspberries are so delicious, but you can get creative with this method and try dipping more real fruit. You could have a variety of these and create a spread for your friends and family too choose from!
- Strawberries (or any other berry)
