Hey guys. I frequent here a lot just lurking the forums but what I just did needed to be said to someone and so I made an account.

I was trying to make this mousse that I heard about that you can make with equal parts chocolate and water (done by weight). However, since I don't have a weight, I just eyeballed everything and it didn't work out right. I kept adding chocolate to try and get it to thicken up to make mousse (I seriously started unwrapping tiny Easter candies that had crunchy stuff in them and even ended up throwing my hollow chocolate bunny in). None of that worked, so I asked my boyfriend "chocolate covered strawberries or make icing?" He chose strawberries.

I looked and saw that we were almost out of strawberries, so I made what I could and threw those in the fridge. There was still a lot of chocolate left so I looked and ended up grabbing a bunch of grapes and throwing them into the pot. I spooned those out, took the little chocolate that was left and put them into cupcake holders and put all of that in the fridge. I'll post pics when they've cooled.

What do you guys think?

UPDATE: It was all eaten before I could take pictures. The water made the chocolate not harden, though, so it wasn't dripping but it wasn't crunchy either. All in all it was pretty good--the grapes were weird but not bad. What other fruits have you guys dipped?

Ive never heard of chocolate covered grapes, but you never know it could be good.

Mousse is generally whipped using dairy, such as cream or milk or even evaporated milk from what I remember.

I had something similar happen to me where we dipped things in chocolate and had WAAAYYY too much melted chocolate left over. I added some corn syurp, milk, sugar and a little butter to try and make a hot fudge type of topping. It was relatively successful. A little imagination and you can do ANYTHING with chocolate Smiley

I updated the main post.

Yeah, I thought it was weird that it was only chocolate and water but the article said it worked. I think that the fact that I couldn't measure could have been it, or maybe it was just wrong. The article was pretty vague on specifics, not even giving a type of chocolate which also seemed a possible issue. I started with DARK dark chocolate and then later mixed in milk chocolate (and also later a bit of milk).

chocolate covered bananas are my favourite Cheesy but I always get funny looks from any men that are around when I'm eating them.......

I've used this recipe before, was very yummy Smiley
few more ingredients than chocolate and water, but worth it!

chocolate  covered oranges (the manderin ones are wonderful)
pineapple,  bananas fresh frozen or dried all yummy! , oreo cookies, potato chips half dipped, nutter butter cookies, 
you can also blowup a balloon and roll it in chocolate.  after its cool  pop the balloon and you can fill it with candy or what ever   OR  fill the balloon ahead with small candies and  then roll. when you pop the balloon you can leave the candy behind.   I made those for my kids for easter one year (home made kinder  eggs).

looking for instant coffee from australia or russia made with mustard and champagne.  VIOLET CRUMBLES and VEGEMITE would be welcome swap items!!

Chocolate covered raspberries are AMAZING!  Hubby got me some one Mother's Day when the candy place ran out of chocolate covered strawberries.  They were made with a darker chocolate though, but still wonderful!

marshmellos are good dipped in chocolate and rolled in nuts or coconut
dried pineapple or mango, cake balls= cake crumbled and mixed with frosting made into balls and dipped into chocolate they are kind of like truffles.
