Weight Watchers Recipe of the Day: Dark Chocolate Dipped Apricots
(34 calories | *2 WW SmartPoints)
I love most any kind of chocolate covered fruit, and especially dark chocolate dipped apricots.
There’s something about the combination of a sweet and slightly chewy plump dried apricot and crunchy dark chocolate that never fails to delight my taste buds.
And unlike fresh fruit, dried apricots are available all year round, so I can indulge whenever I want.
The Skinny on Dark Chocolate Dipped Apricots
I buy the big bag of Sunsweet Premium Mediterranean Apricots (affiliate link) at Costco, so it’s always ready and waiting in the pantry, along with a stash of dark chocolate, for when a craving strikes.
Simple and delicious, these dark chocolate dipped apricots are a great easy healthy way to satisfy my sweet tooth for just 34 calories—a bargain—if there ever was one!
They are a sweet treat I never feel guilty about indulging in.
Sometimes, simple is best.
According to my calculations, each serving has 34 calories, *1 Weight Watchers PointsPlus, *2 Weight Watchers Freestyle SmartPoints. Enjoy!

- 2 ounces dark chocolate chopped into small pieces
- 18 dried apricots (preferably Sunsweet)
- Line a large plate or baking sheet with wax paper or parchment paper.
- Melt chocolate in a small heat resistant bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water. Remove from the heat. (Or, melt the chocolate in a small bowl in the microwave for 30 seconds. Stir and continue to heat in 15-second increments until melted.)
- Dip half of a dried apricot in the melted chocolate and let the excess drip off. Place the apricot on the wax paper lined plate. Repeat with the remaining apricots.
