Easy but effective, chocolate dipped fruit is a healthier option you can bring to your next gathering or give as a gift.
Fruit ( I used strawberries and bananas)
Chocolate (I used dark chocolate chips)
Nuts ( I used walnuts and pistachios)
To melt chocolate, use a double boiler. If you do not have one, do what I did and use a metal bowl bigger than your pot. Make sure no water gets into your chocolate.
Crush nuts. Place is containers suitable for dipping.
Dip tip of skewer into chocolate.
Place chocolate end into fruit.
Place skewered fruit into a cup to allow chocolate to set (5 minutes or so)
Dip fruit into chocolate and then into a topping. If your fruit doesn't stay on the skewer while dipping, try using a spatula to spread chocolate over fruit.
Repeat with all fruit. Place in glasses to allow chocolate to set.
Arrange in a glass or vase, add a ribbon if you like. Tada! A bouquet anyone would love.
