- 36 large seedless grapes free of bruises and soft spots
- 1/4 Cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 4 to 6 Ounces semisweet or dark chocolate
Rinse the grapes well, then remove the stems and pat thoroughly dry.
Have a large bowl with unsweetened cocoa powder ready.
Roughly chop 4 to 6 ounces semisweet or dark chocolate and place in medium-size microwave-safe bowl.
Microwave chocolate on medium (50 percent power), stirring every 30 seconds until nearly melted, about 2 minutes.
Remove and stir well until all is melted.
Drop one third of the grapes into the melted chocolate, and use a spoon to roll them around to coat with chocolate on all sides.
Use a fork to transfer them to the cocoa and then roll them around to coat each grape with cocoa on all sides.
Remove to a parchment-lined sheet to set.
Repeat with remaining grapes.
Serve within a few hours.
