Valentine’s Day inspired vegan chocolate covered fruit.

Instructions:

  1. Wash all fruit well and dry with a paper towel. Fruit must be dry in order to properly coat in chocolate.
  2. Roughly chop a bar of vegan dark chocolate into small, similar sized pieces in a microwave safe bowl. Heat the chocolate in the microwave for two minutes or until completely melted (without any chunks) in thirty-second intervals, stirring each time.
  3. Working quickly so that the melted chocolate doesn’t harden, begin by carefully dipping in your fruit of choosing and/or vegan marshmallows using a wooden skewer into the mixture, coating completely. If your chocolate begins to harden, you may reheat it in the microwave as needed so that it keeps a lava-like texture.
  4. If you wish to add toppings to the chocolate layer before the chocolate hardens you may roll the newly chocolate covered items in shredded coconut, finely chopped peanuts, or vegans sprinkles.
  5. Set each item on a parchment paper lined plate or tray and continue until you either run out of your chocolate mixture or fruit.
  6. Once all items have made it to the tray, put it in the fridge to cool for twenty minutes (or overnight if you wish) to make sure that everything sets.
  7. When cooled, very carefully remove chocolate covered items from the parchment paper and organize how you like depending on the occasion and recipient. You may use a clean, heart-shaped box lined with parchment paper to give to a significant other or you may serve with wine at Valentine’s Day party as a table centerpiece.
  8. Enjoy the chocolate covered fruit and vegan marshmallows chilled within 48 hours.
