These are easy to make and so good! Great in the summer as a sweet treat or for a dessert. You can use any fresh berries you want, I usually use raspberries, blackberries and blueberries or cut up strawberries. The cook time below is actual time it takes for the chocolate to set. The cups make this easier then trying to dip the little berries in the melted choclate.
- 1 (12 ounce) bag white chocolate chips or 1 (12 ounce) bag vanilla chips
- 1 cup blackberry, rinsed, drained and dry
- 1 cup raspberries, rinsed, drained and dry
- 10 cupcake liners
- Place cupcake liners on a plate. Put 3 or 4 berries in each cupcake liner.
- Melt chips according to package directions (usually 30 seconds at 50% power, stir and reapeat until melted).
- Spoon about a tablespoon of melted chocolate into each cupcake liner ontop of the berries.
- Add a couple additional berries on top of the warm choclate that you just spooned into the cupcake liners, gently pushing the berries into the choclate.
- Repeat steps 3 and 4 until all of the berries and choclate have been used (or until the cups are desired size).
- Place in the refridgerator or cool lace for about 30 minutes to let choclate cool and set. Note: the choclate should set at about room temperature if not it is not too warm. Best served at room temperature so the choclate is set but not too hard that you can't bite into it.
Totally LOVE these! Super easy to make & fast! I only had half a bag of white chocolate so I did some with milk chocolate chips as well, but the white chocolate contrast with the berries (both raspberry & blackberry) was much more striking. The first one I made I forgot to add berries first & just spooned the chocolate in. So then I pushed it gently into the creases of the cupcake liner & layered from there. In the end, I think I really liked the chocolate base for the berries when eating the candy, so in the future I may melt more chocolate & make bases for each of them. I like these right out of the fridge, but DH has to let them warm up before he can bite into them. Either way, they are delish & made great use of the fresh raspberries I bought. I used frozen blackberries (what I on hand) but I would advise against using frozen berries, if possible. Even thawed, drained, spread out on paper towels & then patted dry, they still eeked out lots of juice into the cupcake liners. :) We'll be making these again & again. Thanks for sharing, Lindsay! Made & enjoyed for New Kids on the Block tag.
