Celebrate with cake! Chocolate Raspberry Cake Bites to be exact! They are like cake pops without the sticks and with a healthy twist.
Happy 6th birthday Recipe ReDux. In honor of Recipe ReDux’ 6th birthday, Recipe ReDux members are celebrating with cake and other small bite desserts.
I’ve been celebrating a lot lately. My sister’s birthday, Father’s Day, my birthday, and now Recipe ReDux’s birthday. Let’s celebrate with CAKE! .. Cake Bites to be exact.
This recipe idea came to me as I was waiting in line at Starbucks and was looking at the cake pops in the glass case. I wonder who first created the cake pop? It’s such a clever idea, but I always found them way too sweet. Cake plus overload on frosting blended into the cake to make the cake pop shape. I was curious if it would work with yogurt. Guess what – it did! (or I wouldn’t have posted this recipe)
I know my typical dessert combo is chocolate and peanut butter (like here, here, and here), but I also love the chocolate raspberry combination. Okay, let’s be real.. chocolate and anything. Hi my name is Julie and I’m a chocoholic.
- 1 (18.5 oz) chocolate cake box mix (+ ingredients according to the package directions)
- ⅓ cup vanilla Greek yogurt (I used 4% vanilla Siggi's)
- ⅓ cup seedless raspberry jam, melted
- 2 cups dark chocolate chips
- 1 teaspoon coconut oil
- 6 tablespoons raspberry jam
- ¼ cup raspberries
- Bake 9-inch chocolate cake according to package directions. Let cool completely.
- Crumble cake into a large bowl. Add the yogurt and melted jam; mix well. Shape into 1-in. squares. Place on baking sheets. Freeze for at least 2 hours or refrigerate for at least 3 hours or until cake balls are firm.
- Melt dark chocolate chips with coconut oil over a double boiler or in the microwave. Spread a teaspoon of raspberry jam. Dip each cake bite in melted chocolate; allow excess to drip off. Top with raspberry pieces.
- Refrigerate until chocolate has set. Store in refrigerator until ready to serve.
