  • 3 Place 2 raspberries in center of each dough-lined muffin cup (reserve remaining berries for garnish). Spoon about 2 tablespoons almond mixture onto raspberries in each.
  • 4 Bake 16 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 5 minutes. Remove from muffin cups.
  • 5 In small microwavable bowl, microwave drizzle ingredients uncovered on High 30 to 60 seconds, stirring every 15 seconds, until melted. Drizzle onto cups; top each with 1 raspberry. Serve warm.

Expert Tips

*To toast almonds, heat oven to 350°F. Spread almonds in ungreased shallow pan. Bake uncovered 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown.

Substitute semisweet chocolate chips for white vanilla baking chips.
