Weight Watchers Chocolate-Raspberry Cups Candy Recipe
– 6 tbsp semi-sweet chocolate chips
– 3 tbsp Smucker’s Seedless Red Raspberry Jam, or similar product
– 12 fresh raspberries (washed and dried)
Place chocolate chips in a small microwavable bowl and microwave on high, stirring every 15 seconds, until chocolate is melted and smooth, about 1 minute.Spoon 3/4 teaspoon of melted chocolate into a small foil candy cup (1-inch wide by 3/4-inch high). Use a small flat paint brush to spread chocolate evenly over bottom and up sides. Place one whole raspberry, upside down on top of chocolate, on the bottom of each cup. Repeat with remaining cups, place them on a plate and refrigerate for 3 minutes or until chocolate is firm. Spoon 3/4 teaspoon of jam into each chocolate-lined cup. Tap bottom of each cup on counter to settle jam.Reheat remaining melted chocolate in microwave, stirring every 10 seconds, until chocolate is completely smooth. Spoon 1/2 teaspoon of melted chocolate over top of jam in a foil cup. Use brush to spread chocolate to sides so that it seals in jam. Repeat with remaining 11 foil cups. Refrigerate 3 minutes or until chocolate is firm, or allow chocolate to firm up at room temperature, about 3 hours. Enjoy!
