Chocolate dipped fruit pops recipe
Wash and cut fruit if needed
Assemble onto lollipop and/or skewer sticks. For lollipop sticks don't push the fruit to the other side of the stick. For skewers push fruit all the way through until the stick is 3/4 full and at the end furthest from the sharp end. Put all assembled pops onto a parchment lined baking sheet and set aside.
Set up a double boiler with an inch or two of water. Once it starts to boil, reduce heat so it's just simmering. Make sure the bowl isn't touching the water. Then add about a handful of chocolate into the bowl. Stir until it's melted.
Remove from heat and add in the last handful of chocolate. Stir until melted. This is tempering the chocolate and keeps the texture and color of the chocolate smooth and thick.
Dip assembled pops into the chocolate. Shaking off excess as needed.
Lay on the parchment lined baking sheet and sprinkle with desired toppings, if any.
Chill in fridge for 15 minutes or place and store in freezer for a frozen pop, picky eaters may respond better to the latter! Enjoy!
