Chocolate Covered Grapes


  • 1 lb. cold firm seedless grapes, stems removed

  • 4 oz. 60% semisweet chocolate, melted, at body temperature

  • 1 to 2 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder


  1. Dry the grapes well and place them in a bowl large enough to toss them easily. Line a baking sheet with a Silpat or parchment paper.

  2. Add the chocolate to the grapes about 1 tbsp. at a time, stirring well with a spatula, carefully scraping the sides of the bowl and folding through the center of the grapes to coat all of them evenly.

  3. When the chocolate begins to set, using a small strainer, sprinkle the cocoa powder little by little over the surface. Gently toss or stir the grapes as you sift, continuing to add the cocoa until all of the grapes are well coated and separated. Spread on the prepared sheet.

  4. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until the chocolate is set, or for up to 1 day.
