Chocolate-Covered Fruit

Cherries or strawberries are ideal, because the stem provides a dipping handle—but orange slices, chunks of pineapple, large grapes etc., work well—just use a toothpick to hold them for dipping.  For the holidays, sections of sweet mandarin oranges are festive.

 plain dark chocolate (at least 70%)
 fruit of your choice

1

Melt 4-5 squares from a bar of plain dark (at least 70%) chocolate in a small dish in the microwave on high. A minute or so should be enough. It will melt fast, so watch carefully the first time you do this. Do not let it go past melted, or it will burn.

2

Dip each piece of fruit in the melted chocolate and place it on a waxed paper-covered cookie sheet. Put in the refrigerator to cool and harden. If you’re in a hurry, put it in the freezer and it can be ready to serve in as little as a half hour.
