Chocolate Covered Fruit – Vegan!

So there’s no trick to making the easiest thing in the world. I thought I’d post my pics of my chocolate covered fruit because they were delicious and made me feel better about giving my kid sweets. I have this thing about sugar. Especially about giving sugar to my almost 3 year old. Outside of soda, I think it’s the worst thing in the world for your body. Anything in moderation? Sure! I’m not that crazy, but I don’t get down with loads of sugar for the soul. Have some soup. I am a savory girl, not a sweet girl. If you offered me a gigantic Belgian chocolate bar or an everything bagel, I’d choose the bagel every time. Nothing gets in the way of me and a good carb! Just ask my wardrobe that hangs so beautifully in my closet wondering when their owner will get her growing rear to the gym so that they may make an appearance in the outside world again. Sigh… winter is coming, I have loads of amazing pants but let’s just say they’re not lookin’ so fly. Of course, I write this as I am promoting a delicious dessert. 😉

My kiddo has been asking for donuts like crazy. Obviously, I’m not going to satisfy that hunger every time he begs, so I wanted to make him something different to get his mind out of the donut gutter. As you all know, I hate to waste food! I looked in my fridge and fruit bowl, and noticed I had a ton of good fruit about to go south. This is when the chocolate covered fruit lightbulb went on. The rest is delicious history. Start melting your sugars away…
