Chocolate Dipped Watermelon Recipe to Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth

Summer is almost here in Georgia, even though we are technically only a couple of weeks into May. With temperatures in the mid to upper 80s, this chocolate dipped watermelon recipe is my own personal introduction to summer snacking. I love hitting the farmer’s markets on the weekends and once they start up the first week of June, I will be hunting down as many watermelon recipes as I can find. South Georgia offers an abundance of fresh watermelon throughout the entire summer and my kids will eat their weight in that succulent summer fruit! Dip that goodness in a bit of chocolate and you have a little slice of heaven right there in your hands!

Chocolate Dipped Watermelon Recipe

The first chocolate dipped watermelon recipe I found on Pinterest used dark chocolate. While this sounds delicious to me, my daughter doesn’t care for regular chocolate all that much. I chose to do a few white chocolate dipped watermelon slices for her and added some colorful sprinkles. Make up a few different varieties with different chocolates and toppings. Nuts, sprinkles, and shredded coconut are all tasty choices!

When making this chocolate dipped watermelon recipe, I highly recommend you use a seedless watermelon (check out my post on how to choose a ripe watermelon!). Spitting seeds out isn’t quite as easy when you have a mouth full of chocolate! You could also cut the watermelon into cubes and dip only half way into the chocolate with a toothpick. That way, it is more of a finger food and you won’t have messy rinds to deal with while nibbling. Overall, this easy watermelon recipe was a huge hit and very easy to make. It would be a delicious dessert recipe for your next outdoor party!
