Tips for Making this Recipe
Use good fresh fruit. Making sure you are using fresh ripe fruit is important. You want to make sure none of the berries have mushy spots and they firm.
Dry Fruit. Make sure the raspberries are fully dry. After washing them, use a paper towel too dry them, if they are not fully dried then the chocolate will not stick to them.
Use a quality chocolate. When you are making chocolate covered fruit the most important thing next to to using quality, ripe fruit is the chocolate that you are using.
Melt the chocolate in a double boiler instead of the microwave. You will get a much smoother melted chocolate and not have any clumps in the melted chocolate. If you have never used a double boiler to melt chocolate it is super easy, just follow the steps for how to melt chocolate in a double boiler.
Dip while the chocolate is still warm. To get the most sanding sugar on the bottom of the marshmallows you want to dip them in the sanding sugar as soon as you have dipped them in the chocolate.
Variations of this recipe
If you want sugar free chocolate covered cherries you will want to use a chocolate like Lily’s chocolate chips.
You can use dark chocolate, milk chocolate or white chocolate. My personal favorite is dark chocolate.
You can add a drizzle of a different chocolate then what you use to dip the raspberries if you want to.
I like to dip them individually, but you can also dip them in groups of 2-3 raspberries so you have chocolate covered raspberry clusters.
