Chocolate-Covered Gushers

You remember Fruit Gushers? While they didn’t have the mass awareness of say, gummy bears, they do indeed invoke a powerful nostalgia in my tastebuds when they’re brought back to general consciousness. I can recall those special grade school days I would tear into my Ninja Turtles lunch pail and find that mom had supplied me with that goody-goody Fruit Gushers. I was giddy like Mike Tyson at an ear buffet, believe it.

Thankfully, we have our friend Becky, who seems keen on taking everything in my book of food nostalgia and covering it in chocolate has done just that. These Chocolate-Covered Gushers come from a pack of Strawberry Gushers and white and chocolate baking bark. The Gushers are initially frozen for a few minutes for firmness, then coated with chocolate, and back in the freezer to set.
