Technically, I should hate raspberries.
From the ages of 12 to 15, I spent my summers picking raspberries starting at 7:30 am most mornings. My friends and I thought we were raking in the cash by earning $2.25 for each flat (12 cups) of berries that we picked. AND if you stayed the whole season, you got a $0.25 bonus for each flat picked.
I loved berry bonus day.
Even at the age of 12, I took my bonus and bought a fabulous pair of shoes with my hard earned cash.
Needless to say, I have consumed more raspberries in my lifetime than the average woman.
Even after spending so many early mornings with this seedy berry, I still truly adore it. On high carb days, it is one of my favourite things to indulge in.
When I saw this fabulous Figure Competitor friendly dessert idea, I nearly swooned.
Off I ran to the grocery store to create the Pinterest inspired chocolate raspberry rapture at my house.
Do you have any idea how much raspberries cost in the middle of winter in the sub-arctic?
Basically a million dollars.
I just couldn’t do it.
Apparently I won’t be basking in this glorious treat until summertime.
If you live in a temperate zone where berries don’t have to be imported via plane, train, and ship, give this a try and let me know what you think!
I have no doubt it would be fabulous. I am desperately trying not to drool while I write this post.
