Recipe: Chocolate Dips!

I needed a pick-me-up today. A BIG pick-me-up. And what better way is there to cheer oneself up than with chocolate? I don't think there is one. Perhaps a puppy. Anyhow, this is a pretty self-explanatory recipe, but I thought I'd post it in case there is someone out there who has yet to actually make chocolate-dipped fruit themself. And you haven't lived until you have!

Step 1: Find fruits and chocolate. Preferably ripe fruit and preferably chocolate chips/bars of chocolate.
Step 2: Make a double-broiler: Heat water on low and place a bowl on top to gently heat the chocolate, keep stirring so it doesn't burn! Add a small dash of cream if your chocolate is too thick.
Step 3: Dip things in chocolate.
Step 4: Place in refrigerator for 20-ish minutes or until brown goo stops dripping off your food.
Step 5: Enjoy one of the simplest/delicious treats known to man.

Happy eating!

  1. Excellent Cara. I have trouble not burning chocolate, when I try to melt it, so I will use a double boiler next time.

    I showed your blog to N last week and she loved the post about the quilt! XX
