An unexpected phone call this evening from friends visiting New York ended up in a cozy impromptu dinner, complete with chocolate-dipped strawberries…. I did not have time to bake any dessert tonight, could I offer some fruit and chocolate instead? Well, why not fruit covered with chocolate instead. I noticed that I had some strawberries, but without stems. Who wants the stems anyway, right?
I quickly melted some chocolate and dunked the strawberries in the warm chocolate. After setting it in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes, melted some white chocolate and drizzled them on to the chocolate-dipped strawberries. The chocolate was set by dessert time. Luscious strawberries coated in chocolate – a perfect ending to a lovely evening!
