Chocolate dipped strawberries
There simply is no better treat than delicious juicy strawberries dipped in dark chocolate. As a bonus, strawberries are rich in vitamin C and fibre, and dark chocolate is packed full of immune boosting antioxidants so you really can enjoy these without any of the guilt. Little ones will enjoy helping and it is a great way to encourage them to eat fruit if they are not usually so keen.
50g dark chocolate
Also needed: silicone/ non-stick baking parchment
Melt the dark chocolate, either in the microwave in short, sharp bursts or in a glass bowl over a gently simmering pan of boiling water.
When melted, take a strawberry in your fingers and holding the stalk, dip it into the chocolate.
Allow any excess to drip off and place onto some baking parchment/silicone paper. Leave to cool and allow the chocolate to harden at room temperature or, if in a rush, in the fridge.
