Ingredients

  • 16 oz. dark chocolate chips

  • 18 pieces of bite size fruit (strawberries, bananas, apples)

  •  Six 4 inch wooden skewers

Directions

  1. Line baking sheet with wax paper

  2. Microwave chocolate chips in small, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on HIGH (100%) power for 1 minute; STIR. Chocolates may retain some of their original shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10 to 15-second intervals, stirring just until chocolates are melted.

  3. Dip fruit about halfway into chocolate; shake off excess. Or, place melted chocolate in small, heavy-duty plastic bag. Cut small corner from bag; squeeze to drizzle over fruit. Place fruit on prepared baking sheet. Refrigerate for 5 to 10 minutes or until chocolate is set.

  4. Thread 3-4 pieces of fruit onto each skewer
