This is a list of chocolate-covered foods. Chocolate is a typically sweet, usually brown, food preparation of Theobroma cacao seeds, roasted and ground, often flavored, as with vanilla. It is made in the form of a liquid, paste or in a block or used as a flavoring ingredient in other sweet foods.

  • Chocolate biscuit – many types of biscuits (notably cookies, shortbreads, digestive biscuits, wafers) are often covered in chocolate
  • Chocolate-covered popcorn – dipped or entirely coated in various types of chocolate[1]
  • Chocolate bar – many varieties have a chocolate coating
  • Caramel apple – although traditionally covered in just caramel or caramel and nuts, chocolate is often added, sometimes in decorative patterns.[2]
  • Chocolate-coated marshmallow treats (including Peeps) – produced in different variations around the world, with several countries claiming to have invented it or hailing it as their "national confection". The first chocolate-coated marshmallow treat was created in the early 1800s in Denmark.[3]
  • Chocolate-coated peanutpeanuts coated in a shell of milk chocolate. They have a reputation in many countries of being food eaten in movie theaters. In some countries, they are also known as Goobers, which is the earliest and one of the most popular brands of the product, made by Nestlé. Goobers were introduced in the United States in 1925 by the Blumenthal Chocolate Company. Nestlé acquired the brand in 1984. A large number of other brands also exist.
  • Chocolate-covered almonds – many places on the Internet claim that July 8 is (American) National Milk Chocolate with Almonds Day,[4] while November 2 is National Bitter Chocolate with Almonds Day.[5]
  • Chocolate-covered fruit – such as strawberries,[6] cherries and bananas

Similar dishes[edit]

  • Chocolate fountain – a device for serving chocolate fondue. Typical examples resemble a stepped cone, standing 2–4 feet tall with a crown at the top and stacked tiers over a basin at the bottom. The basin is heated to keep the chocolate in a liquid state so it can be pulled into a center cylinder then vertically transported to the top of the fountain by a corkscrew auger. From there it flows over the tiers creating a chocolate "waterfall" in which foods such as strawberries or marshmallows can be dipped.
