Chocolate Covered Apricots
~ Dried Apricots
~ Extra dark chocolate, melted
~ Sea Salt
Dip half of each apricot into melted chocolate. Place on a wax or parchment paper lined tray. Sprinkle lightly with sea salt while chocolate is still wet.
Halloween Fruit Skewers
~ Cantaloupe, chopped into 1 inch cubes
~ Wooden skewers, halved on an angle
Skewer blackberries and cantaloupes alternately on each wooden skewer half. At least 4 pieces of fruit will fit on each skewer. Place in refrigerator until serving. Can be prepped night before or morning of.
~ White chocolate, melted (good quality)
~ Mini Chocolate Chips
Wash and dry strawberries. Dip each strawberry in melted chocolate. Do not tap off excess chocolate, allow to puddle under each berry while on platter- this will make the ‘ghost tail’. Allow chocolate to sit for 30 seconds to 1 minute before applying the eyes and mouth, as they will slide if the placed on while chocolate is too wet. For the eyes, have the chocolate chips pointing out. For the mouth, have the flat part of the chip facing out.
