I have a custtomer who is asking for this. I was thinking of add some rasperry extract or LorAnn oil to my regular chocolate recipe. Any other suggestions that may be better????

Why not add raspberry preserves to your chocolate mix? I did that when I couldn't find raspberry extract at the last minute and it came out great!

I thought of that...but wasn't sure it would turn out. How much did you add?

I replaced 1 cup of wet (I think sour cream) in my recipe with 1 cup of raspberry preserves (no sugar added). At first I didn't think it was going to come thru, but actually it was pretty prevalent! I even said that next time I would probably dial it back a bit, maybe 3/4 cup...but that's just specifically my tastes, I'm not a HUGE fan of raspberry, but I wanted to try making something different as far as flavors. icon_biggrin.gif

All of my taste testers (sister, boyfriend, coworkers) said the raspberry was a good amount. Not too much, not too little.
