Yum yum yum. These are white chocolate raspberry cups- a tasty little nibble, ideal for the summer. Imagine serving these up at your garden party or bbq. They look good, taste good and the best bit is that they’re really easy to make.

Using wonton wrappers means there’s no need to faff around making pastry and they are more solid once baked than filo pastry.  However, having now made them I’d advice folding down the pointy edges as they can be a bit sharp. No one wants to poke someone’s eye out with their dessert now do they.

So first things first. Grease up a cupcake tin and carefully mould your wonton wrappers into each hole. We used 2 overlapped to create a solid basket. Whack these in a preheated oven at 175C for 7ish minutes or until golden brown and then leave to cool. First job done!

While the wrappers cool down you can get on with the filling. To make this melt together 150g white chocolate with 65g of mascarpone in a bowl over a pan of simmering water. I know you all probably already know this but it’s important to make sure the bottom of the bowl isn’t touching the water, when melting chocolate. Especially white chocolate as it burns really easily.

Once all the chocolate has melted and has combined with the mascarpone, take the bowl off the heat and mix in the rest of the mascarpone and then whisk in the double cream.

Once everything is whisked together and you have a creamy, smooth mixture, spoon it carefully into your cooled wonton cups and pop a raspberry (or any other berry you fancy that’s small) on top! Now whack these into the fridge for a couple of hours to set.

And while you wait you can always test the mixture by dipping any left over raspberries you might have into it. We might have done this a little bit….(or until we felt sick).

Just before you’re ready to serve them take them out of the fridge and top with some white chocolate curls and a sprinkling of icing sugar and they’re ready to go!
