I know, I know it sounds weird. But it actually was good! I saw this idea on my Facebook feed under Whole Foods and figured since I had everything for it, why not try it? The kids ate it. Maddox ate several and Juliana licked the chocolate off and skipped the pineapple. Which is odd since she eats way more fruit than he does.
Of course you could try other fruit, too! Trader Joe’s carries this huge hunk of dark chocolate for $4.99 – over a pound! We’ve been nibbling it for 3-4 months now. If you don’t have lollipop sticks, then go out and buy some. They have tons of uses: dipping marshmallows, making cake balls, dipping brownies, small pies, cookies on a stick, rice krispy treats, cupcake toppers, etc. Or, just use your fingers 🙂
Dark Chocolate Covered Pineapple
2 oz. dark chocolate chips or small chunks
pineapple, cut into 1-2″ chunks
sea salt or fleur de sel salt
1. Melt dark chocolate in the microwave until most of it is melted. Then, stir until the rest melts to avoid burning it.
2. Take your pineapple chunks and blot the excess water off of them. Stick a lollipop stick in them and dip into chocolate.
3. Dry on wax paper or silicone mat.
4. While they are still wet, sprinkle a little salt on them. Dry and eat.
