The bubbly is optional, dental floss is not.

Chocolate-Filled Strawberries

  • 20 medium strawberries
  • 4 ounces dark chocolate
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped almonds
  • 1.5 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp Amaretto

Wash and hull strawberries. Scoop out about a teaspoon of the top, leaving a little cup to put the chocolate in. In a saucepan over medium heat, melt chocolate and butter. When almost melted, add Amaretto, whisking until smooth. Remove from heat and quickly fill the strawberries. Once filled, stand the berries in between the metal bars of a cookie rack to dry. Sprinkle with chopped almonds before popping in the fridge a few hours to solidify.

Here are some of our favorite ways to combine chocolate and strawberries:
