Chocolate-dipped fruit is an indulgence that has been loved for decades. And it turns out it’s a simple, fun, and creative treat to make at home for special occasions. What’s especially great about the homemade version is that you can control the quality and amount of chocolate and get totally creative with the ingredients! The world is your chocolate-dipped oyster.  

And the edible flowers are the perfect pick for those looking to spice up their Valentine’s Day at home with an unusual superfood. Enjoy! 


3 cups water

9 ounces (280 g) dark chocolate, 70 percent cocoa or higher, broken into pieces

15 nasturtiums, or other edible flower

1 grapefruit, segmented 

5 pieces dried mango, unsweetened  

5 pieces crystalized ginger 

10 mint leaves

10 almonds, unsalted 

10 dried cherries, unsweetened 

1 teaspoon sea salt 

Don’t be afraid to be adventurous and swap in other seasonal or local ingredients, such as figs, apple slices, fresh cherries, strawberries, or pineapple.  


Add 3 cups of water into a saucepan and bring to a simmer. Next, set a glass baking bowl on top to create a double boiler. Add the chocolate pieces into the baking bowl and mix with a spatula until melted. Keep the heat low and watch diligently, being careful not to allow it to burn. Once the chocolate is melted, remove from heat. 

Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper. 

Dip your fruit and flowers about halfway into the melted chocolate. Place each dipped item onto the baking sheet. Once you’ve dipped all the fruit, refrigerate for 10 minutes until chocolate has solidified. 

For any small fruit or nuts, you can “dip” them in chocolate by pouring the remaining chocolate on the parchment paper, spreading evenly with a spatula and then sprinkling your small nuts, sea salt, or dried fruit on top. Once this chocolate bark is hardened it can be broken into pieces for serving. 

Makes 15 servings. Serving size 3 pieces.
