Fresh fruit is extra delicious with this orange infused chocolate.
Recipe type: Fruit
Cuisine: Dessert
Serves: 24+ pieces
  • 8 oz. semi-sweet chocolate morsels
  • 1 tsp. orange zest
  • ~1 lb. fresh berries and sliced fruit (I used strawberries, kiwi and pears)
  • 2 tsp. heavy cream (optional - if the mixture gets too thick)
  1. Place a piece of parchment paper (or foil or wax paper) onto a large baking sheet.
  2. On a separate plate, place all prepared berries and peeled/sliced fruit.
  3. In the bowl of a double boiler over low simmering water, add the chocolate and zest and stir until the chocolate is melted.
  4. Dip each piece of fruit into the chocolate (about ¾ of the way up the fruit), then shake off excess and place on the baking sheet. (Note: If the chocolate starts to get too thick, add some heavy cream or a little bit of unsalted butter.)
  5. Refrigerate about 20 minutes, until the chocolate hardens.
  6. Remove from the baking sheet and keep the fruit in a covered container until ready to serve, so the chocolate does not turn whitish. (These sweet treats are best served the same day they’re made!).
