Chocolate Covered Raisins

This image courtesy of

It may surprise you to hear that it is quite easy to make Chocolate Covered Raisins at home. Best of all, this recipe from Dorothy Delaney requires minimal cooking. Plus, dark chocolate is a great source of antioxidants, making this sweet treat good for you.


Other options to add to the chocolate mixture: orange extract or juice, peppermint

Use dried cranberries, dried raspberries or other dried fruit instead of raisins if desired.

Instead of cacao butter, feel free to use coconut oil. Also, you can use lucuma powder instead of the mesquite. You can substitute a pich of vanilla powder for the extract.
