Nothing fancy about this, but I hope this serves as a little reminder that simple preparations can be simply amazing! This is so easy, no recipe is required! The contrast between the sweet chocolate and the cool, juicy fruit is what I think makes chocolate dipped fruit so yummy. Be creative with your fruit selection. Strawberries, kiwi, apples, dried apricots, pears, citrus fruits...any fruit that can be sliced or can be dipped whole will work just fine!
I used Baker's Dark Dipping Chocolate. (It's also available in milk and white chocolate varieties.) And the wonderfully versatile starfruit! Clean & slice your fruit, dip in melted chocolate, and set it on waxed paper until the chocolate is firm. Two starfruit, sliced & dipped in dark chocolate, were demolished in less than 8 minutes. Yes, it was good. The picture below is what I could manage to preserve long enough to take the photo!
