I confess, I love Pinterest. There is something so wonderful and inspirational about looking at all of these crafty, clever things that other people have made. I furiously repin things to my own board, determined to do everything from make my own deodorant to having crafty decorations for every holiday. (Oh yeah, I work full time...that's no big deal right)?
It's tricky, because I do love trying new and interesting things, especially when it comes to eating (actually just dessert, poor David is in charge of the real food). But eventually, what I realized about Pinterest, is that I hardly ever actually try anything that I find on there.
So, I am going to try to make some things I have pinned. Perfect. I have looked at my pin for these chocolate chip stuffed raspberries for weeks. I am going to do this. Raspberries are in season, I have them in my fridge, I always have chocolate chips. Yes, this is happening.
Ok, side note, I just clicked over there to find a link to what I am talking about and somebody repinned a recipe for homemade floam! I LOVED floam when I was a kid and now I just spent 10 minutes learning how to make it and wondering if in fact I can grate packing peanuts when I don't even have any kids... also, who has time to grate blessed packing peanuts!
I then realized, what the heck am I going to do with a bowl full of raspberries stuffed with chocolate chips? Do you take that to a party? Do you know how many raspberries I would have to stuff with chocolate chips to take to a party? And then, upon arrival, my friends would look at me like, did you seriously just stuff a whole bowl of raspberries with chocolate chips? I clicked on my pin to find the link, but of course it was a dead link. Perfect.
Maybe I could just make them for a snack for myself. So I set upon that adventure. For starters, the Ghiradelli chip that I like are to big for a raspberry. So I go and dig out the regular ones. After literally about 5 raspberries, I realized how much easier it would be to just pop a handfull of raspberries and a hand full of chocolate chips in my mouth. Actually, a great snack. And I will be deleting that pin, because it makes no sense what so ever for me to stuff raspberries with chocolate chips.
Chocolate Chip Stuffed Raspberries
- 5 chocolate chips
- 5 raspberries
Take 1 chocolate chip and 1 raspberry. Stuff the chocolate chip into the raspberry. Repeat until exasperated. Toss a handfull of chocolate chips in your mouth with a handull of raspberries.
