What Are the Viral Raspberry-Chocolate Snacks?
The raspberry-chocolate snacks have already racked up over 4.5 million views on TikTok as of writing. Viewers seem to be resonating with their sweet, tart, rich flavor and easy preparation.

How Can I Make the Viral Raspberry-Chocolate Snacks?
The raspberry-chocolate snacks are incredibly easy to make, so long as you have a freezer. You’ll also need a couple of bowls, a fork, a baking sheet and some parchment paper.
To make the raspberry-chocolate snacks, you only need three basic ingredients. However, to upgrade your treats, try using a variety of chocolates, as in the video. You can use dark, milk and white chocolates to create beautiful and delicious combinations. Commenters also suggest adding chia seeds to the raspberry mixture or replacing the chocolate coating with yogurt for a healthier dessert.
- Fresh raspberries
- Melting chocolate disks
Step 1: Prep the raspberry mixture
In a large bowl, mash the raspberries with a fork until they are a uniform, jammy consistency. Add your desired amount of honey to sweeten the raspberries. Using a teaspoon, drop the raspberry mixture onto a parchment-covered baking sheet. Set the baking sheet in the freezer and let the raspberry discs chill until completely frozen, 1 or 2 hours.
Step 2: Melt the chocolate
When the raspberries are frozen, melt the chocolate. You can do this in the microwave or over the stovetop using a double-boiler method. Just be sure to stir consistently so that the chocolate doesn’t scorch.
Step 3: Coat the raspberry discs
Dip the frozen raspberry discs into the melted chocolate, turning them to coat. You may need to remelt the chocolate a few times. Place the coated raspberry-chocolate snacks back on the parchment-covered baking sheet.
Step 4: Pop ’em in the freezer
Chill the raspberry-chocolate snacks in the freezer until the chocolate is hardened, 15 to 30 minutes.
Step 5: Top them with more melted chocolate
Finally, if desired, drizzle a different color of melted chocolate over the raspberry-chocolate snacks to embellish them. Let harden on the cold chocolate.
You can then store the raspberry-chocolate snacks in the freezer for a quick, sweet snack!
