You've just finished eating a delicious meal, and now you're in the mood for something sweet. You make your way to the kitchen, open up the freezer, and hope a tub of ice cream will magically appear, even though you already know you never bought any. You contemplate eating the banana on the counter that's about to turn brown, then decide against it in favour of a handful of chocolate chips. If you have a sweet tooth, this scenario probably sounds familiar. Sometimes you're in the mood for dessert, but just aren't in the mood to bake anything from scratch or go out to the store to get something. That's where these chocolate-covered yoghurt clusters come in. Made with only three ingredients, the TikTok-viral recipe comes together relatively easily, yet still manages to satisfy a hankering dessert craving.
Many different variations of chocolate-covered yoghurt bites are currently being shared across the app; however, the trend originally started when people began recreating Costco-favourite Tru Fru at home. The popular frozen snack, which, as it turns out, is fairly easy to replicate, consists of berries and vanilla yoghurt inside a hard chocolate shell.
Judging by the TikToks, the most popular flavour of Tru Fru is strawberries with dark chocolate, but the recipe works with any fruit, yoghurt, and chocolate combo. If you're not a huge chocolate person, I recommend using peanut butter chips instead and pairing it with apples, vanilla yoghurt, and a dash of cinnamon. I also tried raspberries with white chocolate, as well as everyone's go-to strawberries and dark chocolate, and all the combinations ended up being pretty tasty.
In addition to customizing the mix-ins of this frozen treat, you can also control the level of sweetness. If you don't like desserts that are too sugary, you can start off with plain or Greek yoghurt and add however much sweetener you want. I went with maple syrup, though I've seen other TikTokers use honey and agave. Just keep in mind that if you use too much of a liquid sweetener, it will thin out your yoghurt, leaving you with a puddle of liquid surrounding your fruit chunks instead of a singular cluster. Luckily, the consistency is easy to eyeball.
The hardest part of the recipe is actually waiting for the yoghurt to freeze. It'll be tempting to take it out of the freezer early, but when you try to dip partially frozen yoghurt, it ends up melting into the chocolate. It's best to be patient, especially since the results are definitely worth it.
