Special Touch
Tuck fresh rosemary sprigs and mint leaves into the fruit wreath for “greenery.”
Do-Ahead Tip
Dip the fruit into the chocolate up to 6 hours ahead of time. Store uncovered in the refrigerator until the chocolate is set, then cover loosely.
Variation
Go “frosty” by using 1 cup of white baking chips for the chocolate chips.
