How to Make Chocolate Raspberry Bites?

Alright, let’s talk about the making process of these delicious chocolate raspberry bites. Now, we will go through every step to prepare it.

Frozen Chocolate Raspberry Bites

Step 1: Prep your raspberries

  • Rinse 1/2 cup of fresh raspberries under cool water.
  • Pat them dry with a paper towel.
  • In a small bowl, mash them up with a fork. Don’t worry about getting every little bit – some chunks are good!

Step 2: Add the chia seeds

  • Sprinkle one teaspoon of chia seeds over your mashed raspberries.
  • Give it a good stir to mix everything together.
  • Now, let this sit for about 5 minutes. The chia seeds will start to gel, which will help everything stick together.

Step 3: Shape your bites

  • Line a small baking sheet or plate with parchment paper.
  • Use a spoon to scoop out small portions of your raspberry-chia mix.
  • Roll each portion between your palms to form little balls.
  • Place these on your lined sheet or plate.
  • To help them firm up, pop the sheet in the freezer for about 30 minutes.

Step 4: Melt the chocolate

  • While your raspberry balls are chilling, let’s prep the chocolate.
  • Break 2 ounces of dark chocolate into small pieces.
  • Put the chocolate and one teaspoon of coconut oil in a microwave-safe bowl.
  • Microwave in 30-second bursts, stirring between each, until it’s all melted and smooth.

Step 5: Dip and coat

  • Take your raspberry balls out of the freezer.
  • One at a time, drop a ball into the melted chocolate.
  • Use a fork to roll it around, making sure it’s fully coated.
  • Lift it out with the fork, give it a little tap to remove excess chocolate, and place it back on the parchment paper.

Step 6: Add the finishing touch

  • Before the chocolate sets, sprinkle a tiny pinch of sea salt on top of each bite. This step is optional, but it really makes the flavors pop.
  • Put your chocolate-covered bites back in the freezer for about 15 minutes to set.
  • Once the chocolate is firm, they’re ready to serve and eat.

And there you have it! Your very own homemade chocolate raspberry bites. They are best enjoyed straight from the fridge or freezer. If you can resist eating them all at once, they will keep well in an airtight container in the refrigerator for about a week.

Now, let’s check out how others are rocking these chocolate raspberry bites. While scrolling on Instagram, I spotted @Glowcation whipping up these delectable chocolate raspberry bites using the simple ingredients we discussed. Looking at this recipe will make it easy for you to recreate this sweet treat at home.

Pro Tip for perfect chocolate raspberry bites: Freeze your raspberry mixture before dipping it in chocolate. It helps them hold shape and prevents melting. Also, use a fork to dip and tap off excess chocolate for a smooth coating. Sprinkle sea salt on top to take the taste of frozen bites from good to absolutely irresistible.

Substitutions & Variations Ideas

Now, let’s discuss substitutions and variations ideas that we can do. Various ingredients you can use and multiple ideas as per dietary requirements are listed here:

  • Berry Swap: Try strawberries, blueberries, or even blackberries. Each will bring its own unique flavor. I once used mixed berries, and it was like a berry party in my mouth.
  • Chocolate Options: Dark, milk, or white chocolate because they all work. I’ve even tried ruby chocolate for a fun pink twist. Just remember, different chocolates may change the sweetness level.
  • Seed Swaps: Try ground flax or hemp seeds if you want to replace chia seeds. They will still give you that nutrient boost and help bind everything together.
  • Flavor Boosters: Add a dash of cinnamon, a drop of peppermint extract, or some orange zest to the raspberry mixture. 

Now, for those with dietary restrictions:

  • Gluten-free: Good news! This recipe is naturally gluten-free. Just double-check that your chocolate doesn’t contain any gluten-containing additives.
  • Vegan: Use vegan chocolate (most dark chocolates are vegan, but always check the label). Make sure your nut butter is also vegan-friendly.
  • Nut-free: For a nut-free option, replace the peanut butter with sunflower seed butter or coconut butter. If using coconut, add a pinch more salt to balance the flavors.

It’s time to see how people on different social media platforms are creating these frozen bites uniquely. Firstly, look at this reel of Instagram user @larlarlee, who is preparing the chocolate raspberry bites very differently with various chocolates and toppings. Her creative twist adds a fun, gourmet touch to this classic treat.

Meanwhile, on Reddit, user @bettermeofficial is keeping it simple yet delicious, using only four ingredients and topping the bites with cashews.

Storage & Freezing

Let’s talk about keeping these tasty morsels at their best. For maximum freshness, pop your bites into an airtight container and tuck them away in the freezer. They will stay delicious for up to 3 months that’s if you can resist them that long.

When you’re ready to eat, take out as many as you want and let them hang out at room temperature for about 5-10 minutes. This little rest allows them to thaw just enough to be perfectly chewy without losing their cool.
