Chocolate-dipped Fruits

Photo by:

This decadent treat is perfect with after-dinner drinks.

Yield: 4-6 servings

INGREDIENTS
  • 12 Cape gooseberries
  • 12 strawberries
  • 3½ oz (100g) high-quality bittersweet chocolate

Directions

1. Pull back the papery leaves of each gooseberry to expose the round orange fruit. Leave the stems and hulls on the strawberries. Line a baking sheet with wax paper.

2. Chop the chocolate. Transfer to a heatproof bowl. Place over a saucepan of barely simmering water and melt, stirring occasionally. Remove the chocolate from the saucepan.

3. Holding the fruit by the stalks, dip each fruit into the chocolate and place on the tray. Work quickly, as the chocolate does not take long to set.

4. Refrigerate until the chocolate is set. Serve chilled.

Notes

Prepare ahead:

The dipped fruits can be refrigerated for up to 24 hours.
