Dark Chocolate Dipped Apricots

Chocolate Dipped Apricots

Chocolate Dipped Apricots

I love most any kind of chocolate covered fruit, and especially dark chocolate dipped apricots. There’s something about the combination of a sweet and slightly chewy plump dried apricot and crunchy dark chocolate that never fails to delight me. And unlike fresh fruit, dried apricots are available all year round.

I buy the big bag of  Sunsweet Premium Mediterranean Apricots  at Costco, so it’s always ready and waiting in the pantry, along with a stash of dark chocolate, for when a craving strikes.

Simple and delicious, dark chocolate dipped apricots are a great easy healthy way to satisfy your sweet tooth for just 1 Weight Watchers PointsPlus, a bargain, if there ever was one! They are a sweet treat you can feel good about indulging in.

If you wanted you could sprinkle your  chocolate dipped apricots with chopped pistachios  (like Jeanette did), but I prefer mine plain. Sometimes, simple is best.

  • 2 ounces dark chocolate chopped into small pieces

  2. Melt chocolate in a small heat resistant bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water. Remove from the heat. (Or melt the chocolate in a small bowl in the microwave for one minute. Stir and continue to heat in 30-second increments until melted.)
