Chocolate Raspberry Cups Candy

You don’t need to be a chocolatier to make gourmet candy at home! With just four simple ingredients and a muffin tin, you can create these Chocolate Raspberry Cups that are perfect for your healthy Halloween celebrations.

To get started with this easy, no-bake candy recipe, grab a mini muffin tin and line it with eight paper liners. Put together the sweet yet tart fruit filling by combining frozen raspberries with chia seeds in a pot over low-medium heat. Once the raspberries are thawed, set the mixture aside to cool.

In the meantime, melt some chocolate chips with coconut oil in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time, stirring frequently. Divide the melted chocolate evenly between the eight muffin cups. Tilt the muffin tin to make sure that the sides of the liners are covered in chocolate. Place the muffin tin into the freezer to chill.

Once the chocolate is firm, divide the raspberry filling into the center of each chocolate cup. Melt the remaining chocolate and coconut oil and pour it over the raspberry filling. Finally, return your homemade candies to the freezer so they can firm up before you dig in!

Healthy Swaps:

You can transform these Chocolate Raspberry Cups into your own unique candy creation!

  • Swap the chocolate chips with dark chocolate, white chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate.
  • Watching your sugar intake? Use stevia-sweetened chocolate chips instead!
  • Replace the frozen raspberries with another fruit that you love. Try frozen strawberries, mangoes, cherries or blueberries. Any fruit that you love covered in chocolate will work!
  • Add a healthy crunch with a sprinkle of chopped nuts, such as almonds, cashews, walnuts or coconut flakes.
