Almost everybody loves chocolate, but sometimes it can seem like a chore to eat fruit every day. So why not combine the two?

Chocolate covered fruit serves as a wonderful treat and is easy-to-make with a wide array of fresh fruits. They can also be made in advance and stored in the freezer for a quick and tasty snack.

 1 pear
 1 apple
 1 banana
 1 orange
 ½ cup vegan dark chocolate
 1 tbsp coconut oil
 Sesame seeds (optional)
 Sea salt flakes (optional)

1

Line a large baking tray with parchment paper.

Cut the pear, apple, and orange into approx. 1cm thick slices. Slice the banana in half across, and then each of those in half lengthways.

3

In a double boiler, melt the chocolate and coconut oil on low heat on the stove top.

4

Using a spoon, coat ½ of each piece of sliced fruit with the chocolate, and lay them on the parchment. Sprinkle with sesame seeds or sea salt flakes if you choose.

5

When all the pieces of fruit are coated, put the tray in a freezer for about 10 minutes, or until set.

6

Remove the tray from the freezer, and transfer the fruit to a plate. Serve, and enjoy!

NOTES
7

If you want to make the fruit pieces a little more fun, use some cookie cutters of your choice and cut out the sliced fruit into shapes before dipping in chocolate.

8

To prevent the pear and apple from browning, dip them in a 50/50 water and lemon juice mix and pat dry before you coat them with chocolate.

9

If you don't want to use the fruit mentioned above, try using any fruit that tastes good with chocolate, such as plums, strawberries, mandarin segments, sliced kiwi, apricots, and cherries.
