CHOCOLATE COVERED RASPBERRIES — Fresh raspberries are covered in dark chocolate for a decadent yet healthy treat.
It seems like chocolate covered strawberries get all the attention. 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. And they always impress, no matter when or where you serve them.
But oh my goodness! I honestly can’t believe I haven’t thought to do this sooner. These chocolate covered raspberries were amazing!
Based on how quickly they disappeared, I’ll be sure to double the recipe next time.
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. I like to leave a bit of the raspberry peaking through.
But feel free to dunk the entire raspberry in chocolate if you’d like. It’s actually a little easier to cover the entire berry, and more chocolate is never a bad thing.
These raspberries are also pretty easy to pop into your mouth. Repeatedly. I’m speaking from experience here.
But hey, if you’re going to eat a lot of dessert, it may as well be one that’s mostly fruit, right? All I can say is “Move over chocolate covered strawberries. You’ve got competition!”
If you’re looking for a healthier way to satisfy a sweet tooth, I highly recommend these Chocolate Covered Raspberries.

Tips for Choosing and Storing Raspberries
Appearance: Look for berries that are bright and uniform in color. Avoid berries that look dull, dark, wrinkled or dried out. Be sure to check the container for crushed or moldy berries–don’t forget to check the bottom too!
Storing: Do not wash raspberries until you are ready to use them. Store them in the container you bought them in, or some type of breathable container. Avoid keeping them in the coldest part of your fridge.
To freeze raspberries, arrange them in a single layer on a baking sheet. Place them in the freezer for a few hours, then pour the frozen berries into a large zip-top plastic bag or container. Frozen berries will keep for up to 10 months.
