Balsamic Chocolate-Covered Strawberries

Strawberry season has arrived

Eat this one first

By Katherine

Strawberries may only be in season in California or Florida right now, but this is still a great Valentine’s Day dessert. It’s simple and can be made in advance. Also, it won’t weigh you down and goes great with champagne.

Chocolate-Covered Strawberries

  • about 20 large strawberries
  • 12 ounces dark chocolate (chips will work in a pinch)
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp milk or cream

Wash strawberries and pat dry. Don’t remove the stems. Line a large plate with wax or parchment paper. Combine chocolate, vinegar and milk in a heavy sauce pan. Set over medium heat. Whisk until the chocolate is melted and all ingredients are combined. Remove from heat. Dip strawberries into mix one by one. Set on wax paper. Refrigerate until hardened or about an hour.

    To me, this dessert is perfect! Beautiful, small, not too decadent and simbolizes Valentine’s Day as no other… well, some might go for a red velvet cake, but wow, that’s hard to enjoy after a nice dinner. at least for me…

    Nice post Katherine!

  12. What a great idea to use balsamic vinegar in the chocolate. I’ve only ever made a glaze from the balsamic vinegar to drizzle over strawberries.

  13. ChgoJohn says:

    Such a simple thing to make but oh, so good! Adding the balsamic is a great idea, too.
