Step 1: Get some fruit. Wash it and make sure it’s dry. In my case, the fruit was cherries.

Step 2: Dump some chocolate chips in a bowl. More than you think you’ll need. Microwave for 30 seconds, stir. Microwave for 30 seconds, stir. Repeat until the chips are melted.

Step 3: Stir in a couple tablespoons of shortening, for smoothness.

Step 4: Dip fruit in chocolate and place on a wax-paper-lined cookie sheet or tray. If you followed my directions and melted more than you needed, find something else to dip. Cookies, pretzels, or in my case, Clementine wedges.

Step 5: Put the tray in the fridge, but not for too long because condensation will discolor your chocolate.

Step 6: Do not open the fridge and have the fruit fall all over the floor (or in my case, do this). If this happens, salvage the fruit that did not touch the floor.

Step 7: Enjoy.

Haha Emily those look divine :) I've actually been thinking it may be chocolate covered something that I'm craving! Maybe I'll get some ghirardelli 100% and dip my clementine wedges in, that sounds REALLY good. I've done frozen berries before and that's okay, I think the clementines may be better :)

Hi there! Stopping by from the etsy forums :) Don’t these just look sinfully yummmy! Love the cherries, but I bet everything tastes better dipped!

I had several clementines go bad last week b/c I couldn’t eat them all. Now, had I thought of this, I can assure you they wouldn’t have been wasted. Such a simple idea. Kicking myself for not thinking of it!

I can’t believe I didn’t think of chocolate covered fruit!

I recently melted a box of Bakers semi sweet chocolate, and added a 1/4 teaspoon of peppermint extract, and dipped Ritz crackers in that.. thin-minty-goodness! Then I used plain chocolate and dipped pretzels in it. (I still have a few left over). My next venture.. chocolate covered bananas and cherries! Yum! I’m drooling just THINKING of it!!

I can’t believe it but I don’t think I’ve ever had a chocolate covered cherry before! That looks amazing – I’m sure I would love it because I love all other chocolate covered fruit :)

You’re welcome, Mandi! I hope you enjoy it. I’m not a huge banana fan, but they’d be great in chocolate. :)

Oh. My. Goodness.
that is SO yummy looking! You’ve inspired me – I have some leftover chocolate (melting chocolate) from Christmas and I’m going to go dip some bananas!! Thanks for the idea and instructions!
