It’s summertime! It’s chocolate raspberry cluster time!
What follows is one of our simplest summertime go-to recipes for a cool (refrigerated) treat on a hot day. Taken straight from fridge, you can’t beat these tasty, mouth-watering chocolate raspberry clusters, but you better eat them right away or they might melt!
That’s one of the reasons I decided to grow Heritage red raspberries. Another reason is that red raspberries contain high amounts of ellagic acid which has been found to suppress the development and growth of breast cancer tumors.
Chocolate Raspberry Clusters
68 big red raspberries, chilled ( makes 17 clusters w/ 4 berries) or (13 clusters w/ 5)
2 TBSP butter
1/2 cup dark chocolate or milk chocolate chips
pinch of sea salt
2. Make your chocolate raspberry clusters little works of art. Place berries in clusters of four (or five) on a cookie sheet covered in wax or parchment paper, then drizzle small spoonfuls of chocolate, while hot, over the center.
Allow to cool in the fridge until set. They should hold together nicely when totally chilled.
Easy, pretty, and delicious! You can nibble off the raspberries one at a time or pop the whole thing in your mouth and let the chocolate melt s.l.o.w.l.y! Exceptional both ways!
These elegant little chocolate raspberry clusters also show off fancy-dancy when presented on a pretty serving plate and would be the perfect finish for a special event.
