Chocolate Covered Fruit DIY Recipes Reviewed

Fruit Trays Are Fabulous!

Chocolate Covered Fruit DIY Recipes Reviewed - Chocolate Fruit Tray
Fruit trays have been gracing event tables for many years. Whenever friends or family are planning a wedding shower, baby shower, tea, reception or party, I always volunteer to bring the fruit tray.

For decades, I have prepared Chocolate Covered Strawberries for my family. Purchasing chocolate covered strawberries from a candy store, can be very expensive. Making my own, is inexpensive and easy.

One day I was preparing a fruit tray for a gathering and I decided to take a side dish of chocolate covered strawberries as a special treat. I looked at the prepared fruit tray sitting next to the chocolate covered strawberries and I thought, "why not dip all of the fruit in chocolate?" That is how my chocolate covered fruit tray began. 

Over the next few days, I tested different fruits dipped in chocolate and allowed my family to be the judges. We have found that there are a lot of fruits that we love dipped or covered in chocolate.

This will probably be the first time you have seen some of these fruits covered or dipped in chocolate. After all, the day I prepared them, it was the first time I had seen most of them. 

Chocolate Dipped or Chocolate Covered Fruit Recipe

Preparation to cover any fruit in chocolate begins basically the same way.
  1. Wash and dry the fruit.
  2. Peel, if necessary.
  3. Melt the Chocolate

Some of these fruits have special instructions.

You may wish to visit the individual article for each one. Some articles have examples of large chunks fully covered in chocolate, as well as slices with dipped tips.

Virtually any fruit can be dipped or covered in chocolate. Let me know if you find one I haven't made or featured. I would love to try it!

  1. What a great idea for get togethers. I love chocolate anything, and chocolate covered fruit are right up there for me. We have a great big gathering happening at the end of the month! Guess What? I'll be making up a whole bunch of chocolate covered fruit just for that occasion. Thank you for this timely review Miss Sylvestermouse!

  2. Wow, that looks delicious! I imagine everyone wants you at their events. I'm sure they are gleefully imagining your special chocolate-covered treat delights. Of course, you are a delight, also.

  3. Yum. I'm familiar with chocolate covered strawberries and have seen bananas dipped in chocolate, but grapes and cherries (?) I never would have thought about. Your combo tray with so many fruits dipped in chocolate looks fabulous. A holiday table delight for sure.

  4. This is a wonderful idea! Looks delicious. I love chocolate fruit!

  5. Wow! It looks sooooo good. I've been on Keto since May 2019 so yah, this tray of chocolate dipped fruit is making me drool! What a terrific idea to try other fruits in chocolate. Love this.

  6. Cynthia, that looks delicious! I"m craving chocolate covered fruit. I'll have to give in and make some for myself.

  7. Chocolate-covered fruit is one of my favorite desserts! Fortunately, even now that I follow a very low carb way of eating, I can (and do) make fresh berries dipped in sugar-free chocolate for a dessert treat. Yum!
