Fruity White Chocolate-Covered Snack Bites (Dairy-Free!)
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
These fun snack bites are naturally colored and flavored with real fruit! They're also so easy to make, even the kids can join in. And don't worry, cocoa/cacao butter is a naturally dairy-free food! You can find it in the baking section of some stores or online.
Serves: 48 bites
  1. Cut each bar into bite size pieces. I cut them in half lengthwise to make two long strips. I then cut them in half horizontally and cut each half into thirds for a total of 12 bites per bar.
  2. Line a plate, cutting board, or baking sheet with parchment or wax paper. Place the snack bar pieces on the paper and freeze while you prepare the coating.
  3. Melt the cocoa butter in a double broiler or in a medium microwave-safe bowl in the microwave (it takes about 90 seconds).
  4. Sift the powdered sugar into the melted cocoa butter. Add the fruit powder, dairy-free milk powder, and vanilla, and whisk until smooth.
  5. Remove the bar pieces from the freezer and dip them in the fruit chocolate to coat. I use a fork to remove them to help any excess drip away. Place them back on the paper to set up.
  6. Place the bites in the freezer for 5 minutes. If a thicker coating is desired, dip them again, and return them to the freezer for 5 minutes.
  7. If the melted coating thickens up too much for dipping at any time, microwave it on HIGH for 10 to 15 seconds and whisk it.
  8. The bites will keep at room temperature in lunch boxes. But store them in the freezer in an airtight container or freezer bag for optimal freshness and longer storage..
Fruit Powder Note: You can buy some fruits already powdered, or you can buy freeze-dried fruit and grind it into a powder in your spice grinder or food processor. I tested this recipe with pomegranate powder and powdered my own freeze-dried blueberries, bananas, and Fuji apples. See the post above for suggestions of Flavor Combinations.

Dairy-Free Milk Powder Note: Some brands of coconut milk powder actually contain milk, so be sure to seek out a dairy-free one, like this brand. If desired, you can substitute another milk powder or increase the powdered sugar or fruit powder to get the consistency needed for dipping.
