Milk Chocolate Fruit Patties

Who has time for a chocolate covered strawberry? I mean the chocolate always falls off when you take that first bite and there is NEVER enough chocolate in the chocolate to strawberry ratio situation .

And let's not forget the totally delicious chocolate covered banana. That guy got revamped too. Because who want's a whole freaking banana? This my friends, is the correct banana to chocolate ratio. Scroll down to see this chocolate madness.


Milk Chocolate Fruit Patties

11.5 oz Premium milk chocolate (I only use Guittard chocolate)
6 large strawberries
1 banana
1/2 cup chopped nuts



1. Heat half of your milk chocolate in a microwave safe bowl at 30 second intervals. Make sure to stir the chocolate in between the intervals. Once completely melted, pour in the rest of the milk chocolate chips and let the chips melt with the heat of the other chocolate. Do not put back into the microwave. This is "tempering".

2. Pour about a half inch of melted chocolate into a non-stick whoopie pie tin (this is what I used) or a regular muffin tin. Slice your washed strawberries and one banana and place very gently in the middle of the melted chocolate circle. Sprinkle with chopped nuts if desired.

3. Refrigerate until set; about 25 minutes. They will pop right out. 

TIP: These are best made and eaten the same day. As the fruit sits the juice starts to come out and cover the chocolate. They are still super yummy on the second and third day. They just don't look as good.
