Chocolate Delights for Your Heart Throb

These quick and easy desserts are OK anytime. Enjoy them with your significant other, or just chow them yourself.

Chocolate covered delights


  • 1lb of chocolate block or chunks
  • hazelnuts or macadamia nuts finely chopped
  • fruits and pretzels


  1. If needed wash your fruit and pat them dry.
  2. Use a double boiler if you have one. Or, fill a medium size pan with water and place a glass bowl over the water. The bowl has to be large enough not to sink into the water.
  3. On low heat, gently melt the chocolate chunks. It is important to stir frequently.
  4. Remove from the heat and gently roll your goodies in the melted chocolate.
  5. Sprinkle with nuts and place on a wax paper covered cookie sheet to set. You can put them in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes to set the chocolate.
  6. Plate your goodies and enjoy.
