Chocolate Covered Pineapple Recipe

Chocolate Covered Pineapple is Fun to Make and Delicious to Eat

ChocoLate Covered Pineapple RecipePineapple 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.

Easy Directions for Chocolate Covered Pineapple

Chocolate for Melting & Dipping FruitStep 1:  Cover a cookie sheet with wax paper ~ The cookie sheet will make it easier to move your Chocolate Covered Fruit.

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

    Have you done this with fresh pineapple?

    • Cynthia says:

      Yes, I definitely have! I actually prefer fresh pineapple, but canned is often more convenient. There is no difference as long as the fresh pineapple is not “over ripe”. You do need a firm slice of pineapple to dip in the melted chocolate. Otherwise, just make sure you have dried each slice off with a paper towel. Any juice will prevent the chocolate from adhering to the pineapple. (You don’t need to squeeze the juice out, just make sure the surface is dry)

    Not sure why I’ve never thought of this! Of course I love fresh pineapple and, of course, I love chocolate. Just never thought to put the two together this way. Yum!
