Brachos Dilemma: What Bracha Should be Made on Chocolate Covered Raisins?
Provided by Revach L'Neshama (www.revach.net)

Since it is difficult to determine if the chocolate or the raisin is the Ikur, there is great debate if you should make Shehakol, Ha'Eitz or both. Interestingly Rav Eliashiv is quote as saying should make only Ha'Eitz since there are some opinions that the proper Bracha for Chocolate is really Ha'Eitz and not Shehakol.

Therefore for chocolate covered raisins we can rely on this opinion together with those who say that the raisin is the Ikur and make only a Ha'Eitz. However be sure to take a bite out of the raisin after making the Bracha so as you don't end up making the Ha'Eitz only on the chocolate against the commonly held opinion.
