Raspberries and Chocolate

Raspberry Chocolate

Sometimes the simplest things in life are the most delightful.

And I need to focus on not over complicating my life.

So today, my dessert du jour are little fresh raspberries stuffed with dark chocolate chips thanks to the advice of Saucy Sprinkles. Who would have thought that a chocolate chip was just the perfect size to slip right inside a raspberry?

It's kismet I tell you.

These will be great for a garnish for a slightly more sinful dessert I have planned for later this week.  

But all by its lonesome is a pretty good way to end the day as well.  Also something I would love to share with some friends.

Another simple and beautiful thing is Jakob Dylan and Neko Case singing together at a tiny NPR desk concert.  Cannot get much purer then that.

  1. So you just somehow squeeze in a chocolate chip in a raspberry? Initially I though how did you fill them with chocolate :)))

  3. @Medeja Yup, a chocolate chip will just slip right in. It was like they were made for each other.
