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

      It does sound a bit strange, but oftentimes the best things sound strange until you try them! I'd definitely give it a chance.

      I love Kiwi, and this is such a pretty site..I'm not sure I'd be inclined to dip it in chocolate, but I wouldn't mind a bit of chocolate after eating my kiwi. I love the natural sweet taste of a properly ripened kiwi:-)

    • MomwithAHook LM profile image

      Not sure but I'll give anything a try. Chocolate and fruit really don't please my taste buds but I love chocolate and I love kiwi so it might not be that bad. I would gather that it would be like chocolate covered strawberries due to the tang of the kiwi and the sweet of the chocolate though.

      I knew my ears were ringing! I've actually had kiwis dipped in chocolate, they're really good. The funny thing about kiwi fruit is that they actually were imported from China into New Zealand and other islands, they aren't native (but still taste delicious).

      Love kiwi! Since they taste a lot like strawberries to me, dipped in chocolate would work just fine in my mind. :)

      OK, anything chocolate has to be good. These look extra great. But, I do love your cooking motto best! May have to borrow it.

      I'm can pretend it's diet food, right, since it has fruit as the main ingredient. Looks yummy.
