Chocolate Raspberry Mini Bites

Picture of Chocolate Raspberry Mini Bites
My first Instructable! These mini-cakes put a smile on my face. I was inspired by delicate tea cakes and petit fours.

Bite-sized chocolate chip cakes made with all organic ingredients. Dipped in dark chocolate and covered in a fresh raspberry buttercream frosting. A classic combination of raspberries and chocolate.

After 35 minutes check the cake by inserting a toothpick in the center. If it comes out clean, the cake is ready. If not leave it in for 5 more minutes.

Remove the cake from the oven and let it sit for about 10 minutes in the pan

Invert the pan onto a plate (use oven gloves) and remove the cake and let it cool to room temperature. This may take 45 minutes.
