Nutty Dark Chocolate Covered Raspberries

Updated: Jan 4

These raspberry chocolate treats turned out to be so refreshingly tasty! They're the perfect combination of sweet, salty and cold. I used a few things I had at home to create this recipe. Now I will say, they didn't turn out the prettiest, however, who really cares as long as they taste great, am I right?

Next time I make these I'll do a few things differently like freeze the raspberries first, then dip them in chocolate and nuts. It still worked using fresh raspberries, but I had to be a little more careful when covering them. IMO they are best enjoyed if you freeze them first then let them sit on the counter for a few minutes before eating so they soften just a little bit. They taste best cold so they'll only need to sit for a few minutes. You may in fact like them right out of the freezer, so give them a try both ways. These are a great dessert to bring to a dinner party, as an added snack when having people over, or to keep in your freezer for yourself when you're craving something sweet with your glass of wine :) The best part about these is you can feel good eating them because they're sugar free and dairy free. I used Lilly's dark chocolate chips which are sweetened with Stevia and are diary free. You can thank me later for this sweet gift from heaven!

  • If you don't have Lily's dark chocolate chips, use whatever chocolate chips you have

  • If you don't have raspberries, use blackberries, blueberries or strawberries

  • If you don't have sunflower seeds, use chopped almonds or cashews

I n g r e d i e n t s

Lily's Dark Chocolate Chips (dairy free)

organic raspberries

sunflower seeds and/or sliced almonds

parchment paper

*I didn't list measurements because you can really make as many or as a few of these as you want depending on what you have on hand at home.

D i r e c t i o n s

Line a tupperware container or cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Rinse and dry raspberries.

I would suggest freezing the raspberries before covering with chocolate.

Melt chocolate in microwave approx. 20 seconds at a time and stir until melted.

Cover raspberries with chocolate and immediately dip in nuts so they stick to the chocolate.

Place dipped raspberries on parchment paper.

Freeze raspberries.
