The benefits of dark chocolate consumption are widely known, and many foods are favorite go-tos for coating in it.
However, beyond the chocolate dipped strawberry and other popular choices, there are a few deliciously strange recipes floating around that offer an unexpected twist.
Below are some interesting ideas for unusual things to try dipping in chocolate that will make snack time an experience for the taste-testing palate. After dipping, place items on parchment or wax paper laid out on a platter. Chill in the refrigerator or freeze for a few minutes until the chocolate is set.
Spicy chocolate dipped pineapples with sea salt are sweet and refreshing with a little heat to wake things up. Just blot pineapple wedges dry before dipping in dark chocolate, then sprinkle on cayenne pepper and sea salt to taste.

For a decadent flowering plant turned dessert, try a zucchini flower blossom dipped in chocolate.
