Recipe Notes

  • I used 72% dark chocolate and frozen berries.
  • Store the candy in an airtight container the refrigerator.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Put the raspberries into a mixing bowl along with the chia seeds.
  2. Use a fork to mash them together. If you are using frozen raspberries, add up to 1/4 cup of water, 1 tablespoon at a time, to help blend the mixture.
  3. Place spoonfuls of the mixture onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Freeze for at least 1 hour and up to 8 hours.
  4. Before removing raspberry bites from the freezer, put the chocolate into a microwave-safe bowl and melt in 30-second intervals, stirring the chocolate after each segment. (My chocolate took 90 seconds.)
  5. Remove raspberry bites and use a fork to dip them into the chocolate mixture. Before placing them back on the parchment, drizzle a small bit of chocolate onto the paper and place them on top. Continue to dip and place back on the parchment until they are all covered.
  6. Serve immediately or place into an airtight container and freeze for up to one month.
