These Raspberry Rockets are chocolate stuffed raspberries. A simple and sweet treat! Plus, Raspberry Rockets is fun to say! Perfect for Valentine’s Day or anytime.
I’d like to say that I was so consumed with Super Bowl food (like my cheesy corn dip and mini tortellini kabobs), that I completely spaced on Valentine’s delicacies. But the fact is V-Day falls so close to my daughter’s birthday that all my focus is always on her special day. Also, if it doesn’t involve a large group or having the day off from work, then it ain’t no holiday!
But I know most of you are expecting soooomething. Come on Amy! Show me a red and white cake…some heart shaped cookies…a picture of people kissing…something!
So I bring you these Raspberry Rockets – raspberries stuffed with white chocolate. They’re red and white, involve chocolate, and no cooking.
You can absolutely stuff these with milk or dark chocolate, too!
if when you make these, be sure to buy ripe, but firm raspberries, very gently rinse them and allow them to air dry before stuffing them.
They’re a great after-school-snack or welcome-home-from-work-dear goodie, or I-could-have-just-given-you-fruit-but-stuffed-chocolate-inside-it treat that says I love you.

So all you need are raspberries and chocolate chips to stuff them with?
I use betty.crocker. I love. @bellyfull.net And.@eatyourbooks.com
I betty.crocker cook books!
Thank you so very much!!! Let the fun begin!!!!
The great “checkered” Better Homes and Garden is our most used cookbook. Still use our old one, as the newer ones changed the recipes!
Liked Very Culinary on Facebook :)
Liked EYB on facebook!
I probably use my Joy of Cooking the most – looking up recipes & techniques.
I always find good old church cookbooks have great tried and true recipes – but Betty Crocker is probably my most used.

Betty Crocker Old Cookbook, I don’t even know the year – it is old, old, old – it has my original pancake, etc recipes, which I really know by heart. The pages are taped, etc.
Just found your blog, just love it.
Better Homes and Garden Breast Cancer cook book!
My go to book is one with these glorious pictures. Its The Complete Encyclopedia of Vegetables and Vegetarian Cooking. I always end up there when I can’t remember how long to cook corn or ideas for making green beans taste good.
Not only did I “like” the EYC page, but I can’t wait to be a part of that, one way or another. I am doing some spring cleaning and had to relocate many cookbooks that I just can’t part with. Awesome idea!

I tweeted it!
I use my Betty Crocker Bridal edition cookbook the most. I have lots of cookbooks that I like more, but this one is handy when I need a basic recipe.
I turn to the Joy of Cooking first for most recipes!
I love Michael Ruhlman’s series…
Such a unique post you have here. Thanks for sharing!
How to Cook Everything by Mark Bittman. It has an answer to almost every cooking question I have.
I liked the Facebook page too
I just got it recently, but already Vegan Planet is becoming my most used cookbook!
I LOVE Heidi Swanson’s Super Natural Every Day! All the corners are bent already from me thumbing through it constantly.
A good friend of EYB on facebook!
Super Natural Every Day by Heidi Swanson
Exempt me from the contest, but I’m SO excited you’re on their! Makes searching your blog SO MUCH EASIER. But my most used cookbook at the moment is anything by Deborah madison. Love her.
I’d be popping those raspberries like they were fruit or something.
I like EAT YOUR BOOKS on FB
I Like you on FB
I like any cookbook by paula
America’s Test Kitchen or Cook’s Illustrated
I love old cookbooks just to have on the shelf but my go to book is the Betty Crocker old Cooky Book.
Deborah Madison – Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone is the BEST EVER, of course my favorite.
I really like taste
I LOVE going through old church cookbooks, sometimes I find the most amazing recipes !
I “like” you on facebook. The raspberry rockets look awesome!
The eat your books site sounds interesting, I’ll have to check it out. My cookbook that I made is probably my most used however, if I had to pick another, I’d say the Taste Of Home Diet book, I’ve found a lot of things in there. Thanks!
365 Easy Italian Recipes. I use it for ideas and proportions. It’s unpretentious and lies flat when it’s open. Then the 1950 Betty Crocker ring-bound cookbook for everything I made when I was teaching myself how to cook. Also lies flat!
My most used cookbook is probably the Wisconsin Herb Cookbook by Suzanne Breckenridge and Marjorie Snyder. I got it when I was in college and it just has so many delicious recipes that I make them even though they are just a tad too time-consuming for my busy life. I love it.
How cute are these?! And of course they’re healthy because they’re raspberries, right??? Right.
I’ve heard of this site before, and it sounds so fabulous! I adore my cookbooks, but being able to search them electronically would be so much more convenient than trying to remember where I read that “must-try” recipe.
At the moment, my most used cookbook is probably Ann Burrell’s Cook Like a Rock Star, but overall it’s probably Marcella Hazan’s Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking.
Much as I switch between the Joy of Cooking (both the 1975 and the 1997 edition) and the Doubleday Cookbook (1975 ed), it’s more likely I’ll find what I want in the Doubleday. I do admit though, if something is missing from there, the Joy of Cooking will have it.
My favorite quickbread recipie however is from a newspaper clipping from NYC from when I was a child. Works like a charm – and it’s a bookmark in the Doubleday :)
My most “loved” cookbook is my Betty Crocker cookbook, that somehow never got turned back in at the end of the school year, back in the 70’s. It’s lost it’s cover, the pages are slightly (LOL) worn..but it’s been my life saver from the 1st day we got married!
Those raspberries look delicious!!
I have not heard of eat your books but how handy would that be seeing as how I probably have 100 cookbooks!! Don’t really use them much since I have soo many but I would have to say Julia Childs volume 1 or The Joy of Cooking. Mostly for reference.
Thanks for the link. Love your photo. I can’t wait for raspberry season in my neck of the woods.
I have used Eat Your Books and found it really helpful. My subscription recently ran out and I do find myself missing it.
These days I use America’s Test Kitchen’s Family Cookbook a lot. It’s a gem.
. . . And I “like” VC on facebook. =)
Oh man, that’s awesome! I’d love, love, love to win this! My most used cookbook is probably Donna Hay’s “The Instant Cook”–it’s full of great, simple recipes.
