  • Coconut: I added 1 teaspoon of coconut oil to dilute melted chocolate. You don’t have to use coconut oil if your melted chocolate is thin enough for coating.

Professional tips & tricks to make the best Chocolate Covered Kiwi

  1. Kiwi: When making this dessert, make sure to use kiwifruit that is ripe yet firm. It holds the shape and gives it a lovely flavor and texture.

  2. Chocolate: I melted chocolate in a microwave, but you can also melt the chocolate using a double boiler.

  3. Drying: Kiwi slices are loaded with juice, so make sure to pat the kiwi slices dry with a paper towel before dipping them in chocolate. This step ensures better adhesion.

  4. Dipping: Instead of dipping the entire slice, you can also dip it half in chocolate. Or for a fun twist, dip it half in white chocolate and half in milk chocolate.

  5. Topping: Feel free to experiment with different types of chocolate and toppings for different textures and flavors.

  6. Double chocolate: For a fun twist, you can drizzle chocolate-covered kiwi slices with melted white chocolate.

  7. Nuts: You can add some finely chopped nuts like almonds, pistachios, hazelnuts, or cashews to the melted chocolate. It adds a lovely texture and taste to this chocolate treat.
