Raspberry Chocolate Cups
The first of many recipes in our ‘You Can Do Better’ series. First up? Homemade candy with only 5 ingredients. DIY raspberry chocolate cups with a sprinkle of sea salt to be exact. You can eat these year round, it’s only a plus that it doubles as a gorey treat for Halloween.
1.5 cups dark chocolate chips
2 tbsp Chefs Life Cooking Oil
1 cup frozen or fresh raspberries
1.5 tbsp agave nectar
1 tbsp chia seeds
20 mini muffin liners
Over medium high heat, fill a pot with about three inches of water. Bring to a boil. Pour the chocolate chips into a bowl and place over the heat to melt. Stir in the Cooking Oil to combine. Set aside.
In a small pot, combine the raspberries, agave, and chia seeds. Cook for about 5 minutes, or until the raspberry becomes thick and lightly bubbles. Set aside for 5 minutes to cool.
Place your mini muffin liners on a platter. Using a spoon, carefully paint the bottom of each liner and a quarter way up the sides. Place in the freezer to set. Once hard (only a few minutes) drop in a teaspoon of the raspberry jam. Freeze again for 5-10 minutes. Finally cover with the reserved chocolate. Freeze again for 5 minutes. Sprinkle it with sea salt and serve.
