Skip the Edible Arrangements and make these chocolate-covered fruit recipes instead.
They’re absolutely delicious and they make great gifts for someone you love.
In my humble opinion, everything is better covered in chocolate.
Especially fruit because adding a bit of chocolate just sends that fruit soaring. It’s delicious.
I think the best part is that chocolate-covered fruit is pretty darn healthy. It’s a great way to enjoy a sweet treat without any guilt.
Plus, you can always add delicious toppings to make things extra special.
Here are 13 of my favorite chocolate-covered fruit recipes. I know you’ll love them!
1. Gourmet Chocolate-Covered Strawberries
This list starts with a classic, the chocolate-covered strawberry.
I mean, does anything say love more than a chocolate-covered strawberry? At least as far as food goes, I don’t think so.
The secret to this delicious treat is to use high-quality ingredients. That’s a must because there are only two ingredients involved.
The chocolate needs to be rich and pure. It’s best when it snaps cleanly and smells strongly of chocolate.
Of course, you also want ripe and in-season strawberries.
But these strawberries are worth every bit of effort.
2. Chocolate-Covered Oranges
I think chocolate and citrus are an underrated flavor combination. There’s a fantastic balance of bitter, sweet, and slightly tart.
It feels refined and it’s definitely delicious.
Oranges are a great choice of fruit because you can find good oranges year-round.
If you’re in the Midwest, this is great news for you! You gotta love a fresh orange in the middle of winter.
And once again, you want to use high-quality chocolate for the best results.
3. Chocolate-Covered Bananas
These chocolate-covered bananas are quick, healthy, and super duper yummy!
This is a fun activity to do with the kids in your life. (Or by yourself because you need a fabulous snack.)
And this treat is so easy to make. Simply take a banana, cut it in half, and insert a popsicle stick. Now, it’s time for the best part!
Take your banana pops and dip ‘em in the high-quality chocolate of your choice.
I like to have a mix of white, dark, and milk chocolate ready for dipping. Now, it’s time for toppings!
If you want a healthier snack, you can use nuts, seeds, or dried fruit.
If you want something a bit more naughty, use crushed cookies, more chocolate, or candy.
These are great as a frozen treat, too!
4. Chocolate-Covered Blueberries
These chocolate blueberry clusters taste fantastic and are actually pretty great for you. In fact, they’re practically a superfood!
That way, you’ll still feel great even if you “accidentally” eat too many of them.
Luckily, they’re easy to make. So, if you do happen to eat too many you can whip up some more in a pinch!
They’re tart and sweet and wonderfully chocolatey. I love these with a little bit of ice cream and whipped cream.
5. Chocolate-Covered Blackberries
If you’re feeling a bit fancy, try making these chocolate-covered blackberries.
They’re just as healthy, delicious, and clustered as the blueberry bites above.
But for some reason, they feel a tad bit more elegant.
This treat is best with fresh blackberries and good quality chocolate.
For a super-powered antioxidant boost, use dark chocolate. If you want a sweeter treat, milk chocolate is great!
I think they’d be delicious with a bit of mint and whipped cream.
6. Chocolate-Covered Raspberries
In the shadow of chocolate-covered strawberries, chocolate-covered raspberries can be forgotten. But that’s a travesty.
I think most people know that chocolate and raspberry create flavor heaven. So, it makes complete sense to dip some raspberries in chocolate.
This treat is healthy, bright, and flavorful. This recipe uses high-quality dark chocolate, so it’s super luxurious.
However, feel free to use your favorite type of chocolate.
If you want something extra special, try it with pink chocolate. Pink chocolate has a lovely citrus flavor that compliments raspberry beautifully.
7. Chocolate-Covered Apple Slices
If you’re a fan of candy apples but want to save your teeth, try these!
Chocolate-covered apple slices are where it’s at. Plus, everything tastes better on a stick.
They’re a great activity for kids because they’re fun and easy to make.
They’re completely customizable, and you can top them with all kinds of delicious things!
Choose your favorite kind of apple and your favorite chocolate. I love Honeycrisp apples with milk chocolate, topped with caramel and Rolos.
8. Chocolate-Covered Mango
Don’t worry, this isn’t a super slippery mess of a treat.
And though I think that mess would be utterly delicious, this recipe uses dried mangoes. And it’s delectable!
Using dried fruit makes this feel more like candy. But you know, a healthier candy that you can snack on without guilt.
9. Chocolate-Dipped Peaches
There’s nothing quite so sweet and summery as in-season peaches. The only thing better is when they’re dipped in chocolate.
Every slice is sugar perfection. These things are super addicting!
I like them best with dark chocolate because there’s a bit more balance. However, if you have a super sweet tooth, white chocolate is amazing.
10. Chocolate-Covered Pineapple
Ring-a-ding-ding! Pineapple and chocolate aren’t a combination I would have thought of on my own. But thank goodness for this recipe.
This recipe features pineapple rings dipped in delicious dark chocolate. It’s tropical and sweet and absolutely mouth-watering.
Top it with dried coconut, nuts, seeds, or more chocolate.
Of course, fresh pineapple is best for this recipe. But you can use canned pineapple if that’s what you have on hand.
11. Chocolate-Dipped Kiwi Slices
Here’s another kinda weird choco-fruit combination that is surprisingly fabulous.
Kiwis are sweet and tart. Chocolate is sweet and bitter. When you mix them together, it’s *unintelligible sounds of enjoying food.*
It’s insanely good. And once again, it’s pretty darn healthy (especially if you use dark chocolate).
It’s the kind of dessert you can feel good about giving to your family.
12. Chocolate-Covered Watermelon Bites
These chocolate-covered watermelon bites are umami on a popsicle stick. They are a walking food contradiction that somehow works.
These flavorful little morsels are light and refreshing, yet rich. They’re sweet, with notes of bitterness and salt. It’s amazing.
Each delicious bite features frozen watermelon dipped in dark chocolate and sea salt.
You can serve them as an appetizer, a snack, or a dessert.
Feel free to skip the sea salt and use any toppings that sound good to you!
13. Dark Chocolate-Dipped Apricots
If you’re looking for a quick, healthy snack, this is a delicacy.
Dried apricots are a great source of vitamins, antioxidants, and fiber. When you add dark chocolate to the mix, the health benefits only increase!
And the deliciousness factor increases, too. Dried apricots are naturally sweet and dark chocolate is naturally bitter.
Together, they perform a taste-tightrope act that is show-stopping!
