Dipped Fruit

Dress up fresh fruit for a special occasion. Imagine how elegant a tray of bite-size, chocolate dipped fruit will look at your next gathering - and how amazing they will taste.

Dipped Fruit

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.

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 to 2 cups (11.5- to 12-ounce package) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate, Milk Chocolate or Premier White Morsels
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable shortening
  • 36 bite-size pieces fresh fruit (strawberries, oranges, kiwifruit, bananas or melons), rinsed and patted dry

Instructions

  1. Line baking sheet with wax paper.
  2. 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.
  3. Dip fruit about halfway into melted morsels; shake off excess. Place on prepared baking sheet; refrigerate until set.

Yield: 36 pieces (3 dozen)
