Raw Chocolate Raspberry Kisses

I don’t know your thoughts on Valentine’s Day but mine are that it’s all a very overrated ploy. A huge love campaign to make men and women spend a colossal amount of money all for the sake of “affirming” their love. Restaurants double or even triple their prices and even the simple red rose becomes as dear as a piece of Wagyu beef, and don’t even get start me on a bunch of roses! Now I’m not against showing your love- in fact I’m all for it! For me love should be appreciated and shown regardless of the day or date to friends, family, admirers and lovers, through words, affection, notes, texts, letters or for the more techy amongst us, an email/ tweet (#ILoveYou). Love certainly shouldn’t be about money or material and I find it so frustrating how much advertising is thrown in to our faces. My Facebook profile has even had advertising popping up all week offering me a bottle of champagne, chocolates, jewellery and some pretty scary looking underwear…needless to say all for crazy ridiculous prices.

So in honour of love, rather than Valentine’s Day I whipped up these white and dark chocolate raspberry kisses. Fruit and chocolate has always gone hand in hand but the combination of white/ dark and raspberries honestly takes it to another level! They are so simple to make and are sure to put a huge smile on any ones face!

  3. Wow, these look incredible, I wish I could have made them this past week. That raspberry oozing out looks absolutely decadent. I’d love for you to check out my raw/paleo chocolate if you have the chance (www.HninaGourmet.com), and let me know what you think.
