These raspberry chocolate cream cups are unbelievably delicious whilst being raw, dairy-free, gluten-free, grain-free AND free from any added sugar. It is hard to believe that these are as delicious as they are. Fun to make, great for kids and they won't take your blood sugar on a mile long high either. Packed with good fats, fibre, antioxidants, vitamins and nutrients, these treats really are pretty special. The cup's are made from hazelnuts, raspberries, almond butter, sea salt and desiccated coconut. They have a lovely chewy consistency which is a great contrast to the hazelnut chocolate cream which is buttery, indulgent and thick- just like Nutella but without the 57 cubes of sugar (yes, that is in ONE standard jar).
