The Best Way To Enjoy Chocolate Fruit

Almost everyone has tried chocolate and fruit together on one occasion or another. Fondues, ice cream, and edible arrangements taste delicious but can be hard to prepare and find. Thankfully, those seeking ways to enjoy chocolate and fruit together have a convenient solution.

Chocolate-covered fruit pieces come in many shapes and forms. For example, some people prefer to enjoy strawberries and bananas dipped in chocolate, but fresh fruit has a short shelf life and is delicate, making shipping difficult.

Dried chocolate-covered fruit escapes all of these issues. Dried fruits are a concentrated nutrient source that won't spoil for months and has a soft and chewy texture. People who dislike traditional chocolate-dipped fruits may end up appreciating the smoother consistency.

Nutritious Treats

All chocolate has antioxidants, fiber, and protein, and when added to fruit, the end product is surprisingly nutritious. Dried fruit provides additional fiber and antioxidants, and a wealth of vitamins and minerals. These nutrients protect the body against diseases and cancer and contribute to a balanced flavor profile.

Traditionally, people give chocolate strawberries and cherry cordials during Valentine's Day, but chocolate fruit can be enjoyed year-round. Colorful candied pieces of chocolate-covered fruit are available in various assortments and gifts.

Working with quality ingredients is essential for a satisfying result when making any confection. The dried fruit is at the center of each candy, literally and figuratively. Real dried fruit is necessary to provide the best possible flavor and nutrition.

The coating process is crucial to the chocolate fruit. Cracks and blemishes in the chocolate shell make the confection less visually appealing and harm the consistent texture.

The quality of the chocolate coating can also change how it makes a person feel after eating it. Compound chocolate, oils, and artificial sweeteners can make it harder for the body to digest and reduce the quality of nutrition the chocolate fruit should have.
