Chocolate-Covered Raisins are a classic candy that's easy to make at home. You'll never buy a box at the store again!

Eat these chocolate-covered raisins on their own, or add them to trail mixes, snack mixes, or yogurt. You can also experiment with substituting other dried fruits for some or all of the raisins in this recipe, and try mixing up the chocolate! White chocolate and milk chocolate both add different elements that can be fun to play with.

What You'll Need

  • 3 oz (1/2 cup) semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1/2 tbsp oil (coconut oil is suggested)
  • 1 cup plump, moist raisins

How to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.
  2. Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper or waxed paper and set aside for now.
  3. Place the chopped chocolate and the oil in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave until melted, stirring after every 30 seconds to prevent overheating.
  4. Once the chocolate is melted and smooth, add the raisins and stir until they’re well-coated with chocolate. The chocolate will be a thin coating on the raisins.
  1. Scrape the chocolate-covered raisins onto the prepared baking sheet and try to separate them, so there aren’t any large clumps.
  2. Refrigerate the tray to set the chocolate, for about 15 minutes, then break up any clumps into individual raisins. Store Chocolate-Covered Raisins in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
