Chocolate Covered Grapes with Toffee & Sprinkles

I've been attracted to sprinkles lately. There’s something about these teeny rainbow pearls that screams Paar-taay!  They're eye catching and beautiful no matter what you put them on.

I was itching to use the sprinkles in some kind of way, but didn’t want to go through the process of baking cookies or a cake.  I've seen caramel apples covered in sprinkles, but I'm not a big caramel apple fan; soooo chocolate covered fruit (with sprinkles and toffee) came to mind!  It's semi healthy right?

The combo of the grape and chocolate is perfect and the toffee and sprinkles push it over the top!

This is the perfect dessert for a dinner party -- a one handed, one bite, sweet and delicious snack.

Note: Make sure your grapes are on the larger side so that they hold plenty of toffee and sprinkles.

Ingredients: 

  • Large red or green grapes (washed and de-stemed)
  • Milk Chocolate Chips
  • Oil (I used Canola)
  • Toffee Bits
  • Sprinkles

Step 1: Chop the bottoms off of the grapes (this is so they stand up on your tray).

Step 2: Place the toothpick through the top of the grape.

Step 3: Melt your chocolate and add 1 - 2 teaspoons of oil (this will depend how much chocolate you are melting) on low heat.  Your chocolate should be creamy and smooth. Be sure not to burn or harden your chocolate.

Step 4: Grab your grape by the toothpick and dip into the chocolate mix.

Step 5: Sprinkle your chocolate covered grape with toffee or sprinkles.

Step 6. Place flat side down on your platter. Chill in the refrigerator 20 minutes before serving (this helps set the chocolate).

Step 7. Eat Up!
