Updated on February 6, 2017
5 stars from 1 rating of Chocolate covered desserts

Cook Time

Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 15 min
Ready in: 20 min
Yields: 15-24 depending on fruit used


  • 16 Ounces Chocolate chips, (any chocolate works)
  • 2 Tablespoons Shortening
  • 1 Pound Whole strawberries, (Any other fruit works)
  1. In a double boiler melt chocolate and shortening, stirring occasionally until smooth. Take of heat.
  2. Insert a toothpick into the top of the strawberries.
  3. Dip strawberries into the chocolate mixture by holding the toothpick side.
  4. For a cleaner look turn strawberries upside down and insert the empty side of the toothpicks into a styrofoam block.
  5. Allow chocolate to cool. For a more fancy look melt some white chocolate chips in a double boiler and drizzle onto the chocolate covered strawberries.

For other fruit ideas you may use pineapple(cut into chunks or shapes), kiwis (peeled but whole), grapes (whole), cherries (whole with stem), oranges (slices), bananas (halved or sliced) and raspberries (whole).

      Love, love, love! Now I am craving for some chocolate.

      Perhaps, I'll dip some fruit inside to go for the healthier version. :P

      Thanks for sharing!
