Dip & Drizzle (page 165)

Yes, chocolate-coated grasshoppers are a thing!

When the basic recipe is warm enough, it can be used for dipping and coating other foods.

Bite-sized fruits and other foodstuffs can be placed on a tray of waxed paper and then drizzled with chocolate.  Alternately, add a cup’s worth to the basic recipe and ladle out the resulting mixture either into molds or onto waxed paper.  Most larger fruits will do best when sliced. Bananas, bread, and carrots [dry to touch] can be dipped whole or when sliced/cubed, and then placed on a tray for refrigeration.

The Fruit and Nut Chocolate Bar recipe (page 163) is also a great place to look for ingredients that can be dipped and drizzled upon.  You can also use flavored, spiced, or infused chocolates for combinations like mint-blueberry or ginger-orange-cinnamon.
