Perfect Valentine's Dessert

And to finish of your Valentine's dinner you can have the perfect combination..chocolate and strawberries!

These sexy strawberries can be made a day ahead, or you can prepare them together either before or after dinner! 


Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons shortening
  • 1 pound fresh strawberries with leaves

Instructions

1. Insert toothpicks into the tops of the strawberries.

2. In a double boiler, melt the chocolate and shortening, stirring occasionally until smooth. Hold strawberries by the toothpicks and dip them into the chocolate mixture until 3/4 covered.

3. Put strawberries on a sheet of waxed paper for the chocolate to cool and harden.


Hope you enjoy them!
