Dress up fresh fruit for a special occasion. Imagine how elegant a tray of bite-sized, chocolate dipped fruit will look at your next gathering -- and how amazing they will taste.

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 to 2 cups (11.5- to 12-oz. pkg.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate, Milk Chocolate or Premier White Morsels
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable shortening
  • 36 bite-sized pieces fresh fruit (strawberries, oranges, kiwifruit, bananas or melons), rinsed and patted dry

Directions

LINE baking sheet with wax paper.

MICROWAVE morsels and vegetable shortening in uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power for 1 minute; STIR. The morsels may retain some of their original shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until melted; cool slightly.

DIP fruit about halfway into melted morsels; shake off excess. Place on prepared baking sheet; refrigerate until set.

FOR A FANCY DRIZZLE:
MICROWAVE
1/2 cup NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Premier White or Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels or Baking Bars, broken into pieces in small, heavy-duty plastic bag on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power for 1 minute; knead. Microwave at additional 10-to 15-second intervals, kneading until smooth. Cut tiny corner from bag; squeeze to drizzle over fruit. Refrigerate until set.
