How to cut fresh pineapple? Peel pineapple and slice it. Use a knife or small cutter to remove the core from each ring. You can also use the corer.

Does pineapple and chocolate go together? Yes! It tastes amazing.

What fruit can I dip in chocolate? Basically, you can dip any fruit in chocolate including strawberries, apples or pears etc. Check out Chocolate Fondue recipe with all ideas what to dip in chocolate.

What is the best chocolate for dipping? You can use wafers – they melt easily, chocolate chips – which I’ve noticed are thicker than wafers. Both milk, semi-sweet or dark chocolate are good. The most important fact is to use good quality chocolate.
