Chocolate Covered Raspberries

I honestly can’t believe we haven’t shared this recipe (if you can even call it that!) sooner. Chocolate covered raspberries have been the pinnacle of decadence at our house for years thanks to our generous neighbors. We grew up living next door to the owners of a local chocolate shop (shout out to Rebecca’s chocolates in Sandy, UT!).

When our neighbors had extra dipped fruit at the end of the night, they’d drop by a little white paper bag at the side door. The minute we saw their faces, it was a race to be the one to receive the bag of goodies. And we’d immediately dig through, hopeful to find a small paper cup filled with raspberries and creamy chocolate. Mmmmm.

If you love an explosion of flavor, a contrast of textures, a perfect balance of tart and sweet, and the feeling of indulging while eating something fresh, then you are going to love making your own chocolate covered raspberries.

I can’t even call this a recipe because it really is more a list of suggestions! And as far as making homemade chocolates goes, this is a really straightforward, and quick to pull off treat. As in you can make it 15 minutes before your dinner guests arrive and they won’t have a clue!

Indulge in a little decadence with this simple, yet elegant confection!


  • Fresh raspberries- washed and dried
  • Melting chocolate- compound or couverture
  • Sprinkles or decorations (totally optional)
  • Paper Candy Cups



Wash and dry your raspberries- they drier they are, the better your chocolate will set and the longer your raspberries will last.


Place three raspberries in the bottom of the candy cup.


Drizzle or spoon melted chocolate over the berries. Make sure all three berries have some chocolate touching them, or you'll leave a little berry behind in the cup.


Dust a little topping or sprinkle on top if you desire.


Allow chocolate to harden, and eat it up!


Alternately, you could pour a little chocolate into the bottom of your candy cup, and place your raspberries on the top, allowing them to be the star of the show! Either way, you're going to totally enjoy this tart/sweet, indulgent/fresh combination!


This treat is best enjoyed the day you make it, so don't wait!
