Confesses photographer Kenzilicious of their tantalizing chocolate subject, "Like all great obsessions, I feel compelled to create great art in celebration of my muse, my cruel yet delicious mistress." Their object of affection? Dark-chocolate-covered raisins from Trader Joe's.
If you'd like to try making some chocolate-covered raisin clusters yourself, simply combine one 6-ounce package of your preferred chocolate morsels with 1/4 cup dark corn syrup (for the protective glaze) in a double boiler. Bring water to a boil then lower heat to a simmer, stirring the chocolate mixture constantly until melted and smooth. Stir in 2 tablespoons powdered sugar, 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract and two cups of raisins. Drop onto waxed paper by half tablespoons. Chill until hardened and store in your refrigerator -- though we can't imagine they'll last very long.
