Dress up fresh fruit for a special occasion. Imagine how elegant a tray of bite-sized, chocolate dipped fruit will look at your next gathering -- and how amazing they will taste.
- 1 3/4 to 2 cups (11.5- to 12-oz. pkg.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate, Milk Chocolate or Premier White Morsels
- 2 tablespoons vegetable shortening
- 36 bite-sized pieces fresh fruit (strawberries, oranges, kiwifruit, bananas or melons), rinsed and patted dry
LINE baking sheet with wax paper.
MICROWAVE morsels and vegetable shortening in uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power for 1 minute; STIR. The morsels may retain some of their original shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until melted; cool slightly.
DIP fruit about halfway into melted morsels; shake off excess. Place on prepared baking sheet; refrigerate until set.
FOR A FANCY DRIZZLE:
MICROWAVE 1/2 cup NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Premier White or Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels or Baking Bars, broken into pieces in small, heavy-duty plastic bag on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power for 1 minute; knead. Microwave at additional 10-to 15-second intervals, kneading until smooth. Cut tiny corner from bag; squeeze to drizzle over fruit. Refrigerate until set.
Review This Recipe
Quick and Easy
I had tried this to give as a birthday gift for a friend of mine, and this past September I made them for a friends wedding but made them to look like a tuxedo for the groom. Quick and easy. Great recipe but it only works with WAX Paper I had ran out and tried parchment instead and that was a disaster.
