Lucas, who just celebrated his 5 1/2 birthday, came up with this idea when his evening “snack plate” had both raspberries and miniature dark chocolate chunks.  Later, I interviewed him.

Me: What made you think of the idea?

L: I really actually made them up because raspberries have holes in them.  I thought we could put something in them.  Raspberries…they aren’t really crunchy.  They are too easy to chew so I made them harder to chew by putting chocolate chips in them.

Me: Do you have any advice for people who want to make them?

L: Stick the chocolate all the way in so it doesn’t fall out.

Me: Sometimes a package contains mushy raspberries.  What do you do with those?

L: We mostly probably eat them.

Me: When is a good time to serve these?

L: A time when friends come over, play dates, birthday parties…

Me: Are these a dessert?

L: Not really because raspberries are not a dessert.  It’s a snack.

Me: How many do you like to eat?

L:  I don’t know … 10.
