3 Chocolate-Covered Fruits For The Perfect Snack

Everyone knows that the chocolate-covered fruits are the best part of any dessert buffet. They're so good, in fact, that you've been known to knock a few people over just so you could get first dibs. For those of you who just can't get enough of these delicious little treats, we've got some good news: these 3 recipes will show you how you can easily make your own at home.

1. Chocolate-Covered Bananas

You'll Need:

  • 1 banana
  • 10 oz melted chocolate
  • 3 oz chopped hazelnuts
  • 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk

Here's How:

1.1 Remove the banana peel, cut the banana in half, and cut off a small section of the pointed end so that the banana can stand upright. Carefully hollow out each banana half with a knife.

1.2 Melt the chocolate, dip the the thinner side of the banana halves about halfway in, and sprinkle chopped hazelnuts on the chocolate end. Stand the banana upright and let the chocolate set.

1.3 Boil a can of sweetened condensed milk for about 4 hours – this will turn it into dulce de leche.

Tip: Boil the sweetened condensed milk before you prepare the bananas.

1.4 Once the can has cooled, pour the dulce de leche into a piping bag and fill the hollowed-out sections of the bananas with the caramel cream.

2. Chocolate-Covered Kiwi Pops

You'll Need:

  • 1 kiwi
  • 7 oz milk chocolate
  • 2 oz coconut oil
  • popsicle sticks
  • 2 oz white chocolate

Here's How:

2.1 Melt the chocolate and coconut oil in a water bath.

2.2 Cut the kiwi into ¼ inch-thick slices and remove the skin.

2.3 Stick a popsicle stick in each kiwi slice.

2.4 Dip the kiwi slices in melted chocolate and let them dry. Use the melted white chocolate to create a swirl design on the hardened dark chocolate shells.
