Chocolate Raspberry Sticks are fun to make and are even more delicious than the store-bought variety. We always bought these little treats around the holidays when I was growing up, and it was a favorite holiday tradition.

I never even thought about attempting to make these at home until recently, but several months ago I made some Homemade Chocolate Orange Sticks and they were absolutely amazing!  Ever since then, I’ve been planning on making a raspberry version and I finally got around to it!  The results?  Just as good as the orange variety, and maybe even a little bit better!

CHOCOLATE RASPBERRY STICKS

  • 2 packets unflavored gelatin (about 1 1/2 Tbsp)
  • 6 oz. box raspberry flavored Jello
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup hot water
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • 1/2 tsp raspberry extract
  1. Soften the gelatin in cold water and set aside.
  2. Combine sugar, raspberry Jello and hot water, stir until dissolved.  Bring to a boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat.  Add the gelatin mixture and slowly boil on medium-low heat for 20 minutes. Remove from heat and add the raspberry extract.
  3. Pour into well-greased molds. I purchased this mold from Amazon, but I also used two mini loaf pans for the remainder of the mixture and the loaf pans worked just as well as the silicone mold.
  4. Let stand over night and then dip into melted chocolate.  I used the Chocoley Milk Chocolate and it was wonderful, but you could also use dark chocolate or even white chocolate to dip in.   Place the chocolate in a glass bowl and microwave for 45 seconds, then stir.  Continue to microwave in 15 second intervals, stirring in between each interval until the chocolate is completely melted.  I also drizzled a little white chocolate on top just for fun. Enjoy!

  1. You girls are fantastic! Chocolate and orange is delicious together! That’s a given. But now chocolate and raspberry is a whole “nuther”level of goodness! I do have a question:in step three you mention allowing the mixture to set overnight~is that refrigerated or at room temperature?

  2. When you use the mini loaf pans do you cut the jello into sticks before dipping them? I’m anxious to try these. I am able to get the orange ones in the store ( now i don’t have to) but raspberry…… oh goodness..

    • Yes, I cut the gelatin mixture into sticks before dipping them. I hope you enjoy them! My family has already eaten their way through a few batches this holiday season!

  3. I made these, but the candy was FIRM, no jell to it. I am going to have to break into pieces and then worry about breaking teeth. What could I have messed up on. I cooked for 20min, stirring all the time, but the last 5 minutes jelly was turning into strings. please help as I love chocolate jellies

    • I’m so sorry these didn’t turn out for you! I have made them a lot of times and have never had this happen, so I’m not sure what the problem is. It sounds like there was either too much gelatin or the candy was cooked too long – so if you did cook for 20 minutes, maybe your stove is hotter than normal? I would try reducing the heat on your stove and maybe only cooking for 15 minutes next time. The mixture should be really thick but still pourable. Hopefully this helps!

    • I’m not sure why they started to melt-I’ve never had that happen!!! My first thought is that either the jellies weren’t quite set up enough, or that the chocolate was too hot? I usually dip my jellies right into the chocolate as soon as it is melted, but maybe just let the chocolate sit for a minute or two after melting, stirring occasionally to let it cool down just a little bit. Hopefully that helps!

  4. If you could find orange jello, could you use this recipe to make the orange jelly sticks also? It seems easier than the one you already have, and I’m a “the less ingredients the better” kinda cook 🙂 thanks for sharing these I can’t wait to try them!

    • Yes, you could definitely use orange jello to make the orange version. I like the flavor of the orange juice a little bit better, but either way, they will turn out great!

    • I’m so sorry they didn’t turn out for you! I’m not sure why they would be gritty – it actually sounds like the mixture didn’t cook long enough because the sugar should fully dissolve.
