The filling for these Raspberry Cream Filled Chocolates by Nissrine Boufawaz is made with raw cashews, lemon, vanilla, coconut and brown rice malt syrup. It gets its bright pink color and slightly tart flavor from fresh raspberries. Making them is a bit of a process, but don’t let the multiple steps scare you off, as they’re totally worth it. You can store them in the freezer and have them as a frozen treat, or leave them in the fridge and enjoy them like a chocolate-covered cream. But don’t leave them at room temperature.
