Need a quick last minute summer dessert to take to a party or family get together? One of my absolute favorite summer fruit is strawberries. Luscious and bursting with the juices of summer the only thing that could make it better is chocolate!
All you need is a few ingredients and you got yourself a super fast summer dessert that party goers will be scrambling to get.
What you need:
1 carton/basket of plump ripe strawberries
1-2 containers microwavable Baker’s Brand Milk Chocolate Discs (or Dark depending on your preference)
1 package Heath Toffee Bits (can be found in Baker’s isle with milk chocolate discs)
Parchment or Wax Paper
Here’s a fun little fact…did you know that if you wash strawberries under water they immediately begin to break down. So wipe them with a moist cloth or paper towel right before you use them. Leave stems in for dipping.
Melt chocolate discs according to directions on container. Make sure you stir every 15 to 20 seconds and don’t over heat chocolate. Once chocolate is ready dip a strawberry and let excess drip off over container. Place on wax paper or parchment paper to set. Sprinkle with Heath Bits or your favorite topping. Place in refrigerator to keep cool and transfer to storage container to transport to your destination.
Don’t forget to bring your Hostess a bottle of champagne to go with the chocolate covered strawberries. These little treats will taste like you bought them at an expensive fruit shoppe and you’ll be the hit of the summer party.
