Chocolate Covered Kiwi
Chocolate Covered Kiwi is Fun to Make and Delicious to Eat
Have you ever eaten a Kiwi? Have you ever tried Chocolate Dipped Kiwi?
Kiwifruit is harvested in the fall and is a delicious, pretty little green fruit that is a rich source of Vitamin C. It is grown in several countries, but it is a commercial crop from Italy, New Zealand and Chile. When I can get this delicious treat, I enjoy serving them in addition to our standard selections.
I have recently been dipping fruits in chocolate as a special treat for my family and I happened to have one hand. I asked myself, "well, why not?" So, I peeled the little sweetie, cut it into slices and started dipping. Let me tell you, Chocolate Covered Kiwi is a fabulous, tasty little morsel that will now be high on my list of totally awesome dipped fruit. I do believe I personally have a new favorite, so move over bananas, apples, grapes, cherries, pineapple and oranges. There's a new guy in town and he is delicious!
Oh, and did I mention, the green makes a beautiful color addition to the tray for banquets, luncheons, teas and buffets? It also makes a healthy and delectable afternoon snack or even an easy appetizer or dessert. Whatever the reason, I am sure you will find it to be wonderfully scrumptious too.

Easy Directions for Chocolate Dipped Kiwi
Step 1: Cover a cookie sheet with wax paper ~ The cookie sheet will make it easier to move your Chocolate Covered Kiwi.
Step 2: Melt Your Chocolate ~ If you use Saco Dolci Frutta, you can melt the chocolate in the microwave in their package container. Melt the chocolate in the microwave for 2 minutes on medium and stir the chocolate until it is completely melted. Other chocolates will need to be melted in a double boiler or a microwavable dish.
Step 3: Peel Kiwi and slice (One Kiwi will only slice into 6 or 7 pieces)
Step 4: Dip the Kiwi slices in the chocolate. Since Kiwi Slices are juicy, a few of them required double dipping :)
Step 5: Set on wax paper to cool
Step 6: When you have dipped all of your Kiwi slices in chocolate, serve or eat.
Best if not refrigerated
