Hello Friday Faves Fans! We have hit Friday Fave #44! Did you know that tomorrow is National Chocolate Covered Anything Day? What a great day! Of course, we are celebrating this day by beginning with this question:
What is your favorite thing to dip in chocolate?
The first thing I thought of was, "My finger!" Then I asked my husband and he said, "Well, I don't know, my finger?" Great minds think alike.
My girls were much more creative right off the bat. The first thing Maddy said was pretzels. I had to agree right away! That chocolate sweet taste mixed with the salty pretzel is just so good. This time of year, you've got to add the sprinkles, and maybe a layer or caramel under the chocolate? Just a thought.
Alicia also said that she loves chocolate dipped pretzels and then said she loves candies like Mounds that are coconut dipped in chocolate! Alicia is also the one who dipped Oreos in chocolate for us. Those are super good! Who can forget her 2 year old's Halloween reindeer? It is a delicious blend of pretzel and Oreo! What could be better?
Lindsey loves fruit dipped in chocolate. I am also a fan of a big chocolate dipped strawberry. And don't forget the banana peanut butter dipped chocolates I blogged about on this post.
Speaking of peanut butter, Ritz Crackers spread with peanut butter and then dipped in chocolate are so good as well.
I guess we are giving you a couple more than 5 ideas because I can't talk about dipping chocolates with mentioning my family's favorite dipped chocolates that I make on occasion. I am going to repost the recipe below. You can read about how I used them on Easter here.
I know that a lot of people like to just melt their chocolate in the microwave, but I always use a double boiler. I don't have to worry about having to remelt as it cools because I can keep it over the warm water and it stays perfectly creamy. My old set of cookware came with a double boiler, but my new set didn't. I kept my old one. I really like it because it also has a steamer option which is really nice for vegetables. If you don't have one, they are a super great tool to have in the kitchen. There are a few choices available on Amazon. You could get one in time to dip chocolates for the holidays!
Here is a double boiler and steamer set for a great price!
So, What do you love to dip in chocolate? Have fun deciding and let us know!
