  1. Place the chopped chocolate into a double boiler or a heatproof bowl and set over a stockpot with 2-inches of simmering water. Do not let the bowl touch the water. Stir chocolate just until melted.
  2. Line a baking sheet with waxed paper. Dip the strawberries and bananas, one at a time, in the chocolate. Sprinkle with chopped nuts, if using, and place on waxed paper.
  3. Chill in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.

Chef Tips

Experiment with any fruits you have on hand. Try bananas, pears, pineapples, grapes, mandarin segments, whatever strikes your fancy. If you’re in chemo, either wash the fruit very well, or use fruits that you have to peel, like bananas, pineapple, or mandarins. Be sure to wash them before cutting.

Melting chocolate doesn’t require any fancy equipment, just a non-reactive bowl that will fit over a pan of simmering water.
