Chocolate Fruit Cups

We’ve gotta admit – we first made these back in February for Valentine’s Day and now we’re a bit hooked.

If you’re looking for a way to treat yourself and your kids to chocolate (one of our
favorite indulgences, of course! :)) this is the perfect way to indulge in
yummy goodness guilt-free!

The kids can help to make it, so it’s a great activity to do
together!  Although we stuffed these
adorable puppies with strawberries the first time we made them (shown in
the photo), we have since branched out and experimented with many delicious foods and combos – other
berries, some peanut butter, frozen yogurt, regular flavored yogurt, Greek
yogurt, etc.

Enjoy!

Chocolate Fruit Cups

Ingredients 

(Serves 10)

  • 1 cup chocolate chips (preferably dark chocolate one)
  • 10 paper cupcake liners
  • 2 cups fresh strawberries or any of your favorite fruit;
    sliced in half
  • Oil in a spray container (or cooking spray)

Directions

1. Melt chocolate
in a microwave safe container (timing varies by microwave, start with 45 second
intervals and depending on your microwave, see if you need more.

2. Lightly spray
cupcake liners with oil before spooning melted chocolate inside. Carefully
brush the chocolate mixture inside the liner with a spoon, creating a thin
layer about 1/4 inch or less. Make sure the chocolate
fully covers the side of the cupcake liners.

3. Place on a
plate in the refrigerator or freezer for 30 minutes and allow the chocolate to
harden.  Once hardened, check the cupcake
liners to make sure there are no thin spots. If so, brush on more chocolate.

4. When the
chocolate has hardened, peel the paper liners.  You should have perfect chocolate cups. Fill
each with sliced strawberries or your favorite fruit, drizzle with melted
chocolate and enjoy!!
