Where did chocolate dipped fruit originate?
it seems as though chocolate dipped fruit may have originated in south america, as that is where the cocoa bean originated. When chocolate started appearing, it was a rather bitter concoction, so it would make sense to dip some sweet fruit into bitter chocolate for a fantastic treat*. *for the rich, not the poor.

You can use any kind of chocolate for this--chocolate chips, chocolate bars, anything. Baker's came out with "dipping chocolate" in 2007 which was just chocolate chips in a fancy container.. Chocolate formulated for melting (such as Mercken's, available in the candy-making section of most large cra…ft stores) may be marginally easier to work with, but really any chocolate will do.. Using a double-boiler is the most tried-and-true method of melting chocolate, but it's also easy to do in a microwave. There are instructions on melting chocolate on the backs of most chocolate chip bags. Generally you'll want to microwave it in a glass bowl for about 30 seconds, stir, 10 seconds, stir, 10 seconds, stir...and so on, until all the lumps are out. If it gets too stiff to deal with, just put it in for 10 seconds and stir again. ( Full Answer )
I believe it originated with food. A nut can be dipped in chocolate, allowed to cool, and then dipped again for a thicker coating of chocolate. Double dipping has come to mean getting more than your share, or getting paid twice for the same time or service. Someone who retires and then draws a pe…nsion, plus gets paid as a consultant related to their previous work is called a double-dipper. People who work on commission sometimes get paid for managing a client's account, and also get a commission for the buying or selling they do for the client. This is called double dipping and in some cases is unethical or illegal. In financial terms, double-dipping is when you get paid twice for the same work, get reimbursed twice for the same expense, or get paid twice from the same source (pension plus consulting). Example: Your employer sends you on a trip and pays for the expenses and then you deduct the cost of the travel as a business-related expense from your taxes - illegal! Back to food, in an episode of Seinfeld, George dips a chip in the communal dip bowl, bites off the covered portion and then dips the chip a second time. Another party goer has a fit because George's double-dipping is spreading germs. Where double dipping in other situations created higher quality, or richer food (double-dipped chocolates, or double batter dipped fried chicken), double dipping chips was ruining the food (dip). His behavior was considered rude, unethical or immoral. George is called a double-dipper as a derogatory epithet. A fight ensued. ( Full Answer )

Information taken from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/German_chocolate_cake . . This cake is actually not a traditional German dessert. The original recipe was sent by a homemaker in Dallas in 1957 to a newspaper in Texas. It used Baker's German's Sweet Chocolate, which was created in 1852 by an En…glishman named Samuel German for the Baker's chocolate brand. Coconut is also a major baking product of the company.. The cake became quite popular and General Foods - which owned Baker's Chocolate at the time - sent the recipe to other newspapers in the country. Sales of the company are said to have increased by as much as 73%. The apostrophe and the "s" were accidentally dropped in subsequent publications, creating the "German Chocolate Cake" we know today.  ( Full Answer )

Dipping Chocolate What you need: . Multiple bars of milk chocolate (depends on how much you need to make) . Stove top, electric or gas . Small pot . Metal bowl (small enough for the bottom to rest half-inside the pot/cover pot completely) . 1 cup of Water STEPS: 1. Preheat stoveto…p to high 2. Break up the bars of chocolate, put them in the metal bowl 3. Put the cup of water in the small pot, then the pot on the stove 4. Place bowl inside pot; water should not touch underside of bowl This works because the steam from the heated water rises, it has nowhere to escape because the bowl is covering the top so it continually heats itself. The metal bown heats up, and then after a little, the chocolate will begin to melt. Remember to stir constantly once the chocolate starts to melt. ( Full Answer )

Though today we think of chocolate as a sweet solid, chocolate began in a bitter, liquid form called Chocolatl from the Aztecs and Mayan indians. The first people who modern researchers know to have discovered cacao, which is what chocolate is made out of, were the ancient Mayans in about 250-900… CE. They grew cacao trees and harvested the beans. They would mix a paste from the beans with water, chile, and cornmeal. The Aztecs later traded with the Mayans and discovered chocolate. They drank it in a fashion similar to the ancient Mayans. Common people almost never got chocolate, in these ancient societies it was reserved for royalty! It also played a role in Mayan and Aztec religious ceremonies. In 1521, spanish conquistadors came to the Americas discovered cacoa. They realized its value and brought it back to Europe. Chocolate as the Mayans and Aztecs consumed it was too bitter for Europeans so they sweetened it with sugar. For a long time it was a symbol of elite European society and only those who were very wealthy could afford it. In France, it could only be consumed by royals. ( Full Answer )

Chocolate, if we are speaking of Culinary designation, is a Fruit, which is any sweet, succulent, part of a plant, usually from the "Fruiting Body" of that plant. Vegetables, on the other hand, are considered to be the "leafy" part of the plants, which are usually more savory in flavor. Regarding… the "seeds" they too, like Beans, Peas, Cashews, or other legumes, are considered to be "fruit" when we talk about eating the plant (culinary designation) When we talk about Biology, Cladistics, or Taxonomy, then Chocolate is Both a Vegetable, and a Fruit (All plants are vegetation - or vegetables - but not all vegetation is a "fruit," which is specifically the flowering body or product of a plant). Other answers here confuse these two categories. They are distinct classification systems, in which Chocolate, at the base classification, is a "Fruit," but where it is also Taxonomically a "Vegetable." ( Full Answer )

Horses have been witnessed eating and drinking almost everything, but just because they will doesn't mean they should.Chocolate is a mild stimulant to humans mainly mainly due to the presence of theobromine.It is much more potent for horses, and its use in horse racing is prohibited. In sufficient a…mounts, the theobromine found inchocolate is toxic to animals such as horses, dogs, parrots, small rodents, and cats (kittens especially) because they are unable to metabolise the chemical effectively. If they are fed chocolate, the theobromine will remain in their bloodstream for up to 20 hours, and these animals may experience epileptic seizures, heart attacks, internal bleeding, and eventually death. Medical treatment involves inducing vomiting within two hours of ingestion, or contacting a veterinarian. However they can eat Strawberries:) ( Full Answer )
