Great fun Sharon! I had a hard time keeping daughter #3 out of these. I had been dipping other foods, and had some chocolate left so tried this, and am glad that I did. I didn't bother with the toothpick, just threw some fresh berries into the melted chocolate, then fished them out - one by one - with my dipping fork. It was easy, pretty and a fun addition to all the other sweets.

I had fun with this recipe. It started with the cranberries, which were very good. Nice pop under all that chocolate.(I used frozen cranberries, and that worked fine) I also wanted to dip some other things, strawberries, walnuts and peanuts. Fun and good chocolate snacks were had by all! Thank you Sharon 123.

This looks like a yummy recipe. However, if I am going to stick each cranberry with a toothpick, then I'll also go a step further and do something decorative with it. For example, use skewers instead and make these the tip of a fruit bouquet, eg #149494. Or perhaps make decorative strings of the berries with needles and thread and then let kids dip and dry them on the parchment paper.
