Homemade Chocolate Covered Craisins

I think I am addicted to chocolate covered craisins, otherwise known as cranberry raisinets. They are so good and I have been eating way too many of them.

As I was eating my cranberry raisinets recently, I thought that I could easily make a version of these myself at home.

They are basically just chocolate and craisins after all. I also knew that an at home version would be a little healthier. Not only that I knew I could make them cheaper than I could buy them.

So, I decided to give it a try and see what I could come up with.  I am so glad I tried this.

The at home version is as good, if not better, than the real ones. Seriously these are so good and so easy to make.

My kids loved them and have been eating them like crazy the last few days. I will definitely be making more of these soon because the batch I made is already gone.

If you want to make these a little healthier, and higher in antioxidants, you could easily use a high quality dark chocolate. I love dark chocolate so I think they would be really good that way.

  9. Okay – these are ridiculously good!! I am not even fond of Craisins – my son is the lover of those things. But these are way too yummy! :) Too bad my fridge doesn’t have a lockable compartment, as these are going to seriously impede my weight loss desires :)

  10. This is a wonderful idea! I can’t believe I didn’t think of this! Especially since I use craisins in my fudge! Mmmm!

  11. I L.O.V.E the orange flavored craisins and I bet they’d be great covered in chocolate as well, but I think they are fantastic on their own. Yum!

    I’m sitting here at the computer munching on Craisins and I come across this? I wonder if I can get them done (or at least in the fridge) before my husband gets home from work. I’m sure he’d rather I be making him dinner. 😉

    Thanks for the idea!

  13. these look so good! we eat so many craisins here it’s ridiculous. :)

  14. So the chocolate chips are nut-free?

    • @barrie, I developed this recipe before we knew my daughter was allergic to nuts and peanuts. Now I read labels and some brands are safe for her and some are not. My suggestion is to just be careful and read labels to be sure they are safe for those with nut allergies.

      • @Lynn, I’m just looking for some brands to try for nut-free- My family doesn’t have the allergies, but my girls go to schools that are nut-free. I’d like to send it goodies, but can’t find a good chocolate chip on any lists…

  15. I’m addicted to chocolate covered craisins as well!! I have waited all year for them to come out and they aren’t in stores yet :( I am def going to be following ur recipe tonight
