MY FAVORITE TAKE ON STRAWBERRIES



















tasty strawberries can be found everywhere in the markets right now. well, you can find them almost year round these days. but you don’t get the local grown that actually TASTE like strawberries until april/may. stumped for a dessert recipe last night, i took a carton of strawberries and dipped them in 70% dark chocolate that i melted in a double boiler. it’s fast, it’s easy and it is very tasty!

150 grams of 70% chocolate (i use lindt chocolate)
1 carton of strawberries (approximately 35 berries)

melt the chocolate in a double boiler. as soon as the chocolate is completely melted, turn off the heat (if it becomes too liquidy the chocolate just drips right off the berries instead of sticking to them!) holding them by their green tops, dip the strawberries one by one into the chocolate and place on parchment paper. let cool. when the chocolate has solidified, transfer the chocolate covered delights to a serving dish and devour.
