As recipes go, there isn’t much to this one, but it is so, so good. A couple of weeks ago, my co-worker Jackie brought some Easter candy to work. There were jelly beans and gumdrop fruit slices and those little Hershey’s candy bars. I like to put a fruit slice on top of the tiny candy bar and eat it all at once. I thought the whole process would be easier if the fruit slice was dipped in chocolate, so I didn’t have to mess with unwrapping the candy bar (it is such a chore). So that’s what I did. I also sprinkled just a bit of sea salt on top to achieve that wonderful salty-sweet mix and for general classiness (everything is more sophisticated with sea salt).
If you sprinkle with salt, these are best served shortly after the chocolate sets up. If you look closely at the picture, you can see the chocolate is starting to pit and change color a bit from the salt. Those fruit slices were about 24 hours old when I took the photo. After a weekend, the chocolate starts to dry and get a little crumbly, but the candy still tastes great.
