Mini Chocolate-Raspberry Nut Cups

Vickie Parks


A rich and decadent chocolate-raspberry mini dessert with a touch of walnuts that are perfect for any special occasion. These mini desserts are individual size, so they'll satisfy your sweet tooth on those days when you just want a sampling of something sweet. This was my entry in the Ready, Set, Cook contest #15 (on another site), which required using specific ingredients. I was quite happy with this entry and I try to make these every Christmas now, because they're so good and everyone seems to love them.

How to Make Mini Chocolate-Raspberry Nut Cups


  1. Place chocolate chips in a glass bowl (I used a 1-cup glass measuring cup) for 45 seconds on High power in microwave oven. Add raspberry preserves and chopped nuts, and stir well. If chocolate is not completely melted, return bowl to microwave and continue to heat on High at 15-second intervals, stirring each time, until chocolate is completely melted.
  2. Spoon about 1 teaspoon of the melted chocolate mixture into 12 foil-lined candy cups, filled about 3/4 full. Refrigerate for 10 minutes to allow the individual desserts to "set".
  3. Optional: Garnish each with a fresh raspberry or fresh chocolate shavings for added appeal.
