Chocolate-Raspberry Fudge Bites

Pin It!


That’s what May said to us poor folks in Texas. Throughout April, we were treated to warm, sunny weather. But May hits and—bam!—suddenly it’s pouring rain and 40 degrees!

So much for April showers bring May flowers.

In an attempt to brighten my mood, I turned to chocolate.


My afternoon snack did the trick: chocolate-raspberry fudge.

Aren’t they supercalifraga-adorable-licious?!?

Expialidocious. Instead of making a cake, as I normally do with this recipe, I cut the fudge into bites this time. Who doesn’t love bites, right? Just looking at the photo makes me smile again. Oh, and now I want some more fudge! So that you don’t have to click back, here’s the recipe again:

Chocolate-Raspberry Fudge Bites

  • 80g raspberries (2/3cup)
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder (16g)
  • 4 tbsp coconut butter or Homemade Coconut Butter
  • Scant 1/16th tsp salt
  • Sweetener: I like 5g agave, but my testers like 1 1/2 to 2 tbsp (20-30g)

Melt your coconut butter, then add the raspberries (I like to use frozen, thawed berries and melt them a little too) and other ingredients. (I have not tried this recipe with coconut oil, and therefore I can’t vouch for the results if you make that substitution.) Mash until it’s completely smooth, like chocolate butter. (If you wish, you can use a blender, but I never do. I just put it all in a Magic Bullet short cup and mash with a spoon. Use as frosting, or fridge/freeze. (If you freeze, be sure to thaw before eating.) This makes a very small serving (I used a mini springform for the slice in the photo), so if you want a regular-sized cake, make a bigger batch!! (Triple or quadruple for a normal-sized cake.)

See original fudge cake post for Nutritional Information.

(This version probably has fewer calories because raspberries aren’t as calorically-dense as bananas… but what’s a calorie-count anyway, if not an estimate?)

Unfortunately, while chocolate and raspberries work wonders for one’s mood, they have no effect on brightening dismal weather. It continued to rain all day… with more rain predicted for tomorrow. Yuck.


Dinner was comfort on a plate: Bread-Free Vegan Stuffing

In between snack and dinner, I escaped to the mall—I go stir-crazy if cooped up in the house all day (even if I’ve gotten exercise via the dreadmill). But before my great escape, I managed to make some yummy things in the oven. You might have heard me talking about these mysterious yummy things, yesterday, on Twitter. 😉


This week is going to be full-on desserts!
Cake, cookie dough, chocolate… prepare your tummies! Starting tomorrow, when things get sprinkled.

    Your photos look super yummy! Can’t wait to see what recipies are ahead. Chocolate is a favorite of mine!!

  4. When I am stuck in the house all day, I can feel myself getting lazier by the minute, and I HATE it! LOL! If it’s planned, I’m ok, but if it’s because of the weather or something like that, I get so irritated!

  5. RAIN!>!!? EW EW! i wish i could send you the sun over here!!. um LOVE FUDGE- even better when its bite sized because eating lot sof little bites seems less naughty than eating a giant piece- even though Id probs eat the whole batch anyways! um this week sounds like a DELICIOUS LINEUP!

    Mary Poppins was one of my favorite movies as a kid, along with Cinderella.

    Those fudge bites are so cute, and look perfect with that little raspberry on top.

    Happy Monday!

    Haven’t seen Mary Poppins in ages! I think my favourite parts are still the ones that involve Bert, however you spell his name. 🙂 The chimney sweep! I loved when they went to that world in the pavement picture, haha.

    And yes, you’re definitely not alone in terms of feeling like you’re going insane when stuck inside all day. I even get cabin fever like that when I’m sick and am supposed to stay put! Haha, it’s good to hear that you got out, even though the weather was blah.

  8. Oooh, I’ve been meaning to make that fudge, thanks for the reminder 😀 Can’t wait for dessert week 😀
    I sometimes get stir crazy from being inside too long, and sometimes it doesn’t bother me. Weird 😛

  9. Julia says:

    I had my wisdom teeth removed on Saturday and I’ve been stuck inside for the past three days! It’s awful. It’s rainy here too, and I’m going stir crazy. Can’t wait for my chipmunk-sized cheeks to go back to normal so I can get up and exercise…

  10. Your blog always makes me drool 🙂 Love ya katie!!

  11. Emily says:

  16. Girl, I seriously want to reach through the computer and eat that raspberry fudge because it looks INSANE! I LOVE LOVE LOVE your recipes! Stay fab girl!

  17. Lenna says:

    I loved Mary Poppins when I was a child, but I haven´t seen it on the TV programme for like 10 years! It was so lovely movie, I should probably re-watch:)

  18. Holly @ The Runny Egg says:

    Bring on the desserts!!!

    Usually I feel stir crazy when I’m cooped up inside all day (like yesterday!) but I actually enjoyed it — laying around and watching tv was the perfect way to start my week! 🙂

  19. A.Cook says:

    That first picture is some serious food porn! Really gorgeous!
    I am studying for finals all week so I’m feeling very stir crazy, especially because it’s so sunny and pretty out (though still sort of cold…low 50’s, wind) in Boston. I’m sitting in the living room with all windows open and blinds pulled up though, trying to feel a little outdoor spirit!

    1. Ugh it’s colder in Tx than in Boston? Double ugh. No, triple!
      If you DO get a chance to go outside, breathe in some fresh air for me! 😉

  20. Alex@Spoonful of Sugar Free says:

    I have to be outside…I am completely dreading my 3-day long car trip next week. 3 whole days stuck in the car while I look around outside and see beautiful, Spring weather and all the budding flowers….blech! I am going to need to bring myself some raspberry fudge, too, to cheer myself up in the car 🙂
