Dark Chocolate Dipped Dried Fruits
These are a great option for a healthier sweet treat.
Servings: 10 servings
- ¾ cup dark chocolate You can use chips, chunks or even cut up a chocolate bar
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 1-2 cups assorted dried fruit I used, apricots, dates, figs and mangoes for mine, but sky is the limit here!
- sea salt optional. I love it, but it is a personal preference
Line a baking sheet with parchment. Set aside. Now, add your chocolate and coconut oil to a microwave safe bowl. Place in microwave for 45 seconds. Remove and mix. The goal is to get your chocolate about ½-3/4 way melted. So, if after the 45 seconds you need more time. Return and microwave for 20-30 seconds. That was all it took for my chocolate. Then remove from the oven and mix gently until the chocolate melts all the way. Now, dip your fruits, let the chocolate drip down a bit, then place on the parchment lined baking sheet. After the chocolate has set just a little bit, sprinkle with sea salt. Allow to set at room temp or place in the fridge to set. I have to even store my extras in the fridge as I keep my house really warm. Now, sit back and enjoy. You deserve it!
