Chocolate coated Grapes & Chocolate dipped dried apricots

Remember the other night when I made a vegan feast for my friend? well this was The Chocolate Course. Yum yum yum yum yum!
I'm working my way through it, I've already shared my favourite- the chocolate coated almond butter stuffed dates here. But I also experimented with chocolate coated fruit! the dried apricots are quite traditional (and oh so yummy) but the grapes were a little new. I think they were a great success and really hope you give them a go too. I'm sure you could chocolate dip them successfully also but I decided to go for less chocolate in an even coating. Can you imagine sweet, juicy, rich, chocolatey natural m&ms? These are amazing. 
Chocolate coated Grapes
1/2 bunch of Grapes (red/green/black)
1/4 cup chopped 70% dark chocolate (you need much less than you think!)
Tiny pinch of salt
  • Chop chocolate
  • Melt over a bain marie
  • Add a pinch of salt
  • Pick grapes off the bunch
  • Add to the melted chocolate and stir gently
  • Place on non stick paper to set
  • Gently remove (depending on the thickness of the chocolate they will be delicate)
  • Enjoy!
  • (I'm not sure how long they keep, they were so good they were all gone by the end of the night)
Chocolate dipped dried Apricots
24 Dried Apricots
3/4 cup 70% dark chocolate
Tiny pinch of salt
  • Chop chocolate
  • Melt over a bain marie
  • Add a pinch of salt
  • Dip in melted chocolate
  • Place on non stick paper to set
  • Enjoy!
  • (These keep well in a tin for at least a week)
I hope you enjoy these too, they're so quick and taste amazing- as long as you use GOOD quality dark chocolate they're not bad for you so you really can have your chocolate and eat it too.
All the best,

  7. The chocolate covered grapes look like little easter eggs! Great idea... I can just imagine how delicious they would be, particularly with a really dark, bitter chocolate. YUM :)
