This Chocolate Covered Dehydrated Kiwi recipe was a pleasant surprise!
I received several organic kiwi in my Farmbox Direct delivery (they deliver organic fruits and veggies to your door) and was trying what to think to do with them, other than eat them plain.
I knew my boy’s wouldn’t eat them because “they don’t like kiwi”, so I decided to dehydrate them to preserve them before they went bad.
I had never dehydrated kiwi before and couldn’t believe how good they were!
They are a little sweet and have a tart and tangy taste at the same time.
And much to my surprise, my boy’s, who would normally never eat a plain kiwi, tasted them and couldn’t stop eating them.
This is why I love my dehydrator so much! I am able to get my boy’s to eat dehydrated fruits and veggies that they wouldn’t eat otherwise.
Now I have to let you know, that even if you didn’t want to dip them in chocolate, they are ~so~ good just plain.
The second time I made these, they never even made it to the point of getting dipped, as my boy’s ate all of them straight off the dehydrator tray.
