Sweet and Tart Chunky Dunkers


6 medium apples (any variety), cut into wedges

1 pint strawberries

1/2 of one (8-ounce) tub or jar fat-free caramel topping

1/2 of one (8-ounce) tub or jar fat-free chocolate topping

  1. Wash and prepare the fruit.
  2. Dip fruit into toppings and enjoy! 
  • Like sweet fruit? Dunk chunks of peaches, pears, bananas, grapes, or sweet apples like Golden Delicious, Gala, or Fuji apples.
  • Like tart fruit? Try pineapple chunks or tart apples like McIntosh or Granny Smith apples.
  • Squeeze lemon or lime juice on cut apples to prevent them from turning brown.
  • It may be easier to dip the fruit if you heat up the caramel and chocolate toppings.
  • Try different toppings such as fruit-flavored yogurt, honey, or peanut butter.
  • For some chewy crunch, top with raisins, low-fat granola, nuts, or seeds.
