Chocolate Covered Broccoli Recipe

Chocolate Covered Broccoli

Stephanie Gallagher
Admittedly, chocolate and broccoli aren't exactly a typical pairing. I created this recipe after my 80-something uncle told me he didn't like broccoli.

"What if it was covered with chocolate?" I challenged.

"Then, I'd eat it," he said.

So, of course, I had to come up with a recipe.

Surprisingly, it's not a bad combination. And hey, if it doesn't get the kids to eat vegetables, at least it'll give them something to talk about with their friends.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 large head of broccoli
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt, such as Maldon sea salt (optional)

Preparation:

  1. Line a cookie sheet with waxed paper.

  2. Wash and dry broccoli. Trim spears to a length of about 2 inches. Set aside.

  3. Place chocolate chips and peanut butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat 1 minute on 50% power. Stir and continue heating in 30-second increments at 50% power, until chips are completely melted.

  4. Working quickly, dip each broccoli spear into chocolate mixture, allowing excess to drip off. Place on prepared cookie sheet.

  5. Sprinkle with sea salt. Let cool 20 to 30 minutes. Refrigerate if desired.
