This sweet combo certainly doesn’t come without strong opinions. And we’re of the belief that a little bit of dark, melted chocolate is the one-ingredient upgrade your watermelon needs this summer.

Why This Upgrade Makes Watermelon More Fun

If you need to be convinced that watermelon is in fact dessert, chocolate is definitely the way to do it. While fresh fruit dipped in chocolate isn’t anything new, this isn’t exactly a common pairing.

How to Do It

Watery items and chocolate are generally more foes than friends, so the key to making this upgrade work is the freezer. Cut watermelon into wedges and pop the the pieces in the freezer for a quick chill before dipping them into the melted chocolate. Return them to the freezer to chill for about 45 minutes or until the chocolate sets.

Upgrade Your Fresh Watermelon
