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.
Lucas’s Stuffed Raspberries

Rinse and pat dry the raspberries. Stuff each one with a chocolate piece and place them on a serving plate.
