Ingredients

  • For the Chocolate:
  • 4 ounces dark chocolate chopped (I used Trader Joe’s Belgium 72% dark)
  • 3 tbsp organic butter divided
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • For Raspberry Filling:
  • 3/4 fresh raspberries rinsed and drained
  • 4-5 Medjool dates pitts removed (soak dates in warm water if they are firm, then drain)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp honey

Instructions

  • Add dark chocolate to small sauce pan and cook over low heat on stove with two tbsp butter, stirring constantly to prevent burning.
  • Once chocolate and butter are melted, add in honey, cocoa powder, and remaining tbsp butter. Continue stirring to incorporate and ensure chocolate does not burn.
  • Meanwhile add raspberries to small pan, along with dates, and honey, cook over low heat, using fork to stir and mash raspberries and dates.
  • Cook raspberry mixture 4-5 minutes, then lower heat to a simmer and let thicken another 2-3 minutes. Continue to use fork to mash and blend dates and raspberries.
  • Once chocolate has melted, add small spoonful to your chocolate moulds. If you do not have any specific shaped molds, you can use a muffin tin and just add small spoonful of chocolate to bottom of each. {Make sure you keep approx 1/3 of the chocolate to add to molds after raspberry filling.}
  • Tilt your chocolate mold or muffin tin slightly in all directions so the chocolate begins to coat the sides.
  • Add mold to freezer for approx 10 minutes to allow chocolate to harden.
  • Once chocolate has frozen and raspberry mixture has blended and thickened, add small spoonful of raspberry filling to each mold and spread/flatten to make room for additional chocolate.
  • Add the remaining chocolate to each mold on top of the raspberry filling. If using a chocolate mold, go ahead and fill to the top, if using a muffin tin, add enough to cover the raspberry filling {the muffins are a much larger "mold", so you will not fill it up}. Smooth the chocolate out to create a fairly even bottom, then return to the freezer for an hour, or until chocolate has fully hardened. Remove and serve!
  • Store in refrigerator or freezer.
