    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 4 ounces semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
    • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
    • 6 ounces white chocolate, finely chopped
    • 2 pints strawberries, with stems (or)
    • 3 cups fresh pineapple chunks (or)
    • 36 fresh kiwi fruit slices (or)
    • 36 dried apricot halves (or a combination of all three fruits)
    • finely chopped almonds, for garnish (or pistachios)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Line a baking sheet with foil. For the chocolate coating: In a small heatproof bowl set over hot (not simmering) water, melt the semisweet chocolate with 1 teaspoons of oil. In another small heatproof bowl set over hot (not simmering) water, melt the white chocolate with the remaining 1 teaspoons oil. Leave both bowls over the hot water.
    2. 2
      Pick up one piece of fruit at a time and dip it into the melted dark or white chocolate, coating about half of each piece of fruit. If desired, drizzle the dipped portion with a contrasting color of chocolate and sprinkle with some chopped nuts. Place the fruit on the foil-lined baking sheet. Work quickly to coat the remaining fruit.
    3. 3
      Refrigerate for 5 minutes or until the chocolate is set. Keep in a cool place until ready to serve. (Fresh fruit should not be held for more than 4 hours before serving).

      Yum yum! As you can see, I used white chocolate and drizzled with dark. Super easy and delicious! I only did this with strawberries, though.

      This has to got to be the simplest way to make chocolate covered strawberries in the world! I made these Easter morning for our brunch. I only used the semi-sweet chocolate (no white chocolate, but I will next time when I actually have more time). And I didn't use any crushed nuts... they don"t need them. I lined my sheet tray with wax paper, rather than aluminum foil, and they did not stick at all after chilling (which I did on the front porch... only 45* here on Easter). I would definately recommend this recipe, and play with it to your liking. Soooo easy! (And if you really think about it... imagine how much you would spend to get a platter of chocolate covered fruits from a grocery store?!) Thank you for a wonderful idea.
