Dip, Baby, Dip!


With Valentine’s Day coming up, everywhere I go I see the same thing:  CHOCOLATE, and lots of it!  This decadent dessert treat, which comes in many different varieties (dark, milk, white) is delicious by itself, but often times even better melted, and dipped with other tempting treats.

When I found this Tropical Foods “Dipping Chocolate Deliciousness” blog contest I was so excited to explore unique and yummy dippable snack foods using their delectable dipping chocolates.




Here are Grocery Lane’s Top 5 Favorites:

1.  Sweet:  Dark Chocolate Dipped Oatmeal Cream Pie

Soft, sweet and cream filled.  Topped with dark chocolate turns this kiddie treat into an adult dessert. 


2.  Salty:  Milk Chocolate Dipped Potato Chips

Using plain potato chips with our without ridges mixes the perfect combination of salty and sweet. 


3.  Chewy:  White Chocolate Dipped Dried Bing Cherries

White chocolate with any dried fruit is delicious, but dried bing cherries are chewy, tart and perfect.


4.  Crunchy: Dark Chocolate Dipped Short Bread

Buttery and crumbly short bread cookies are wonderful by themselves, but even more decadent dipped in dark chocolate. 


5.  Savory:  Milk Chocolate Dipped Bacon Strips

  Smokey and crispy bacon tastes delicious under a layer of ooey gooey milk chocolate.  It’s official – opposites do attract!


These chocolate covered creations barely scratch the surface on all of the amazing combinations that are waiting to be discovered.  Use your imagination and have fun!
