Fruit the Chocolate

February 15, 2011

Have you heard anyone say, “Don’t fruit the beer”? (If you have, smack them – hello, Corona!)

In honor of post-Valentine’s Day (and to spread the love, every day)- How’s about we fruit the leftover chocolate?!

When I saw these red beauties in the grocery store, it was impossible to resist…

I HAD to get them. Valentine’s Day was right around the corner, so there was my excuse.

Plus, it’s a good way to get your daily amount of fruit – right? :)

And of course, I had to salt the chocolate – at least for just a few…

 They were made as gifts, but I’ll admit I snuck a few for myself. Wouldn’t you?

Chocolate-Covered Strawberries

INGREDIENTS

6 oz leftover V-Day chocolate, chopped

1 lb strawberries (about 20), washed and dried very well

DIRECTIONS

Put the semisweet a heatproof medium bowls. Melt the chocolate in a microwave at half power, for 1 minute, stir and then heat for another minute or until melted.

Once the chocolate is melted and smooth, remove from the heat. Line a sheet pan with parchment or waxed paper. Holding the strawberry by the stem, or with a toothpick, dip the fruit into the chocolate, lift and twist slightly, letting any excess chocolate fall back into the bowl. Set strawberries on the parchment paper. Repeat with the rest of the strawberries. Sprinkle sea salt on the chocolate while it’s still hot (optional).

Set the strawberries aside until the chocolate sets, about 30 minutes.

 Word to the wise: Make extra. Most of the strawberries won’t make it out of the kitchen for the others to enjoy!
