High tea elegance

The Chocolate treasure raspberry cakes are so elegant. For the little time and effort it took to prepare these individual cakes, I received high compliments from my guests. With an abundance of summer fruits, I can't wait to try Chocolate treasure mini apricot or peach cakes.

This recipe was so easy and the presentation was great! This is definitely a keeper for dinner parties! I made half with raspberries and half with strawberries and they both were a hit!

Such a wonderful dessert!

I do luncheon meetings 1 x per month for my boss, and I am always looking for "individual" desserts, or some type of dessert bar. {Naturally, I use this site extensively!!} Anyway, I made these for the last meeting and you would have thought I had just invented sliced bread! They raved and raved, so of course I had to give out the recipe. We are having a few friends in for SuperBowl Sunday and This will be the crowning touch!

very good

I made this for my kids and they loved it. It is going to be a favorite in my house for a long time. Thank you.

WOW!!!!

If I could I would give this 6 stars! They are easy, and absolutely out-of-this-world! The only thing I changed was that I used creamy caramel treasures instead of choc. creme(the store didn't have any). I think this worked even better than the chocolate creme would have! Thanks so much 4 this recipe! Will make this over and over again
