Free Healthy Recipe - Chocolate Coated Strawberries

Low GI, Low sugar

How often do you see a group of women each armed with a spoon, each descending like seagulls onto a single plate of pudding? Women in particular enjoy the taste of something sweet to complete meal, but can't, or won't eat a dessert of their own because:
1. They can't fit it all in, or
2. They're worried about their weight.

Whatever the reason, these juicy strawberries coated in bittersweet chocolate are the perfect solution for a single sweet fix, and complete any evening meal. Share if you like, but it's unlikely you'll want to.

Ingredients
8 large strawberries
100 grams dark chocolate, (70 per cent cocoa)

Method

Wash and dry the strawberries keeping the green husk on.

Bring a pan of water to the boil.
Turn off the heat and place a bowl of grated chocolate or chocolate broken into very small pieces over the pan to melt in the heat of the steam. Let the chocolate sit for approx 5 minutes until it's melted.
Stir until smooth.
Lay a piece of baking paper on a plate. Dip the tips of the strawberries into the chocolate and lay them on the paper to set.

Note: Always turn off the heat under the pan of boiling water to melt the chocolate and wait for it to melt slowly - excess heat burns the chocolate.
