since frozen strawberries are available throughout the year dipped fruit is a treat anyday! dipped fruit can be enjoyed anytime during the day! a sweet splurge!

I make these every year. They're so easy to make and pretty up and the shortening added really helps with the crunch of the chocolate coating while making things easier because you're chocolate stays melted longer with the shortening. People have had mine with the shortening and they always say that something is different in a very good way. I also add 1 t. of vanilla to the mix.

Turned out perfect. I didn't add as much shortening and it still came out fine. Good for squares cake pieces, cookies or fruit.

Today I spent 4 hours dipping chocolate and making molds with 3 other people! I always wondered how to add the lines to the strawberries! Great idea! Thank You

Wish we could get fruit that came with splenda instead of fructose. This is a great idea list and I will use the chocolate covered fruit with my Poppyseed and daffodil cakes as a garnish for Easter Dinner.

These were devoured at my niece's bridal shower. The recipe is far easier than the old way of using paraffin wax. Yuck! This recipe is appealing, easy, and the chocolate hardens to a pretty and glossy shell. Any gathering, from bible study to PTA parents to family birthday to your book group will love them.Guaranteed!
