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.
- 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.
