Chocolate & Skor Dipped Strawberries

Kelley EdwardsOur own Kelley Edwards shares another yummy recipe - but with this one she says "don't let the simplicity fool you".  It may be easy to create, but the taste is oh so decadent and always impressive. Thanks again Kel - always delivering delicious stuff!

I like the crunch of the Skor Bars, and how they compliment the strawberries in texture and flavor. But you can also substitute them with other things like crushed Peanut Butter Cups or toasted coconut; experiment with your favorite flavors & enjoy! KE

ingredients

1 dozen ripe strawberries
1 cup chopped chocolate (preferable) or good-quality chocolate chips
4  crushed Skor bars

method
1. Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
2. Wash the strawberries and dry them thoroughly.
3. Place the chocolate in a metal bowl over a boiling pot of water (or double boiler). Overheated chocolate gets thick and hard to work with, so it's important to keep a careful eye on the chocolate. Remove it when some pieces are still not melted, and stir until they melt. If you are using low-quality chocolate chips, you might need to add a little vegetable shortening to thin it out and make it easy to work with. If you'd prefer, you can also use the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds
4. Holding a strawberry by the stem (or with a toothpick at the top) dip it in chocolate, twirling it in a circular motion to evenly cover most of the berry. As you lift it from the chocolate, twirl it so that any excess chocolate drips back into the bowl. Dip into the Skor bar pieces.
5.Place the berry on the prepared baking sheet and repeat with remaining berries and chocolate.
6. Once all of the berries are dipped, refrigerate them for 30 minutes to set the chocolate.

These treats taste best when made and eaten on the same day.
