{simply} sweet


It's so simple, it's silly. Everyone has probably seen it or done it already, but Saucy just felt like stuffing her raspberries with dark chocolate and white chocolate chips today. As if the raspberries weren't sweet enough.


They're cute on their own or they'd be even cuter on ice cream. What about making a white chocolate raspberry ice cream and garnishing it with some of these little fellas?

That would be nice.


That would be very nice.


It's especially nice if you use the best quality chips you can find. It's kind of at Saucy's insistence... she'll cut corners where she can but she cannot, she will not cut corners on: toilet tissue, laundry soap, disposable razors or chocolate chips. In some cases, a girl just has to get herself the best that money can buy.

Are we agreed? What else?

Delicious! Great and easy idea :)

Cassandra said...

And no, I've never seen that before...never even thought about it!! But it looks delicious!

Laine said...

Yummy! I also am frugal minded but never scrimp on carseats, toilet paper, sheets, and make-up brushes.

Trish the Dish said...

Those look SO yummy! Must try them... Don't scrimp on hair products either. Nothing like a head full of straw.

Melanna said...

Those are really pretty! I have NEVER thought to do that. But I will now!
I agree with all your non-scrimpings and Laine's sheets post. Hubby and I were talking about that last night. Thread count really does make a difference.
Good quality vanilla for my baking is a must. I REFUSE to bake with artificial and I save my special mexican vanilla (from a friend and not available except when she goes and gets it) for anything I'm serving to guests because it's SO good.

What a great idea for raspberries, and to add them to the top of your ice cream. I will have to make this for my kids in the spring.

I'd love to pin this. Would that be ok?

Made these for book club this weekend -- took all of 5 minutes and they were a huge hit by all the adults and the kids. What a dirty little trick to get your kids to eat their produce! I usually add bacon to whatever I'm trying to sell to them, but chocolate chips work too :) Thanks for the beautiful photo, inspired me (saw it on Pinterest)

piper lawler said...

Are these mini chocolate chips! I bought ghirardelli chips and my raspberries got smashed by them. They tasted yummy though! Next time I'll try the smaller ones

Looks like at great snack for my daycare kids. We are going to try them next week. Fun thing is that they will be able to make them as well as eat them. Thanks for the tip.

Sunny said...

Just used this recipe at one of our parties and it was delicious. I blogged about it and gave you credit for this ingenious idea. Our raspberries sat out in the sun for a bit and the chocolate melted and wow. Wonderful stuff.
