Chocolate Covered Pineapple is Fun to Make and Delicious to Eat
Pineapple is one of those fruits that is delicious in anything, with anything or just by itself. My entire family loves pineapple so, of course, I could not resist dipping it in melted chocolate and serving it as a snack.
Chocolate Covered or Dipped Pineapple would also be great as an appetizer or as a dessert. It is so pretty that it would be lovely on a wedding reception table, wedding or baby shower table, or served at an afternoon tea.
It is also very easy and quick to make.
Supplies and Ingredients Needed to Make Chocolate Covered Pineapple
- Pineapple ~ Sliced or Chunks ~ Canned or Fresh ~ I used canned fruit in the photos because it is fast and easy.
- Chocolate for Melting ~ I prefer Saco Dolci Frutta featured below
- Wax Paper
Pineapple Chunks make an especially easy to serve appetizer or snack!
Easy Directions for Chocolate Covered Pineapple
Step 2: Melt Your Chocolate ~ If you use Saco Dolci Frutta, you can melt the chocolate in the microwave in their package container. Melt the chocolate in the microwave for 2 minutes on medium and stir the chocolate until it is completely melted. Other chocolates will need to be melted in a double boiler or a microwavable dish.
Step 3: If you are using canned fruit, completely drain juice and gently dry pineapple. If you are using fresh pineapple, core and slice it into pieces.
Step 4: Dip the Pineapple in the chocolate
Step 5: Set on wax paper to cool
Step 6: When you have dipped all of your fruit pieces in chocolate, serve or eat.
Best if not refrigerated
