A Little Pink Treat

My freezer will need defrosting soon… I’m waiting for the temperatures to drop so I can just pop everything outside while I de-ice it, but there’s no sign of winter yet… So in the meantime I did a stock-take and found lots and lots (and lots) of frozen berries!

And while regarding them, I had a vision… frozen raspberries (the last punnet) plus a bar of white chocolate

(I then found a bar of milk chocolate too!)

Simply melt some white chocolate in a bain-marie and, while it’s melting, line a freezer-proof tray with parchment.

Now the fun bit – whip half a punnet of raspberries (or other berries) out of the freezer and dunk in the chocolate, roll around using a cocktail stick and put on the parchment. You have to work quickly, as the berries shouldn’t defrost!

Put them back in the freezer immediately. Repeat with the milk chocolate.

I used 100g (4oz) white and 100g milk chocolate for a 250g (1/2 lb) punnet of raspberries.

Can be eaten directly from the freezer, or leave them to warm up a few minutes.

Warning: these do not keep for long (not in my household anyway!) 😉
