Strawberry season is here! So, let’s pair a few delicious berries with chocolate. Here’s a two-ingredient dessert you’ll make all season.
All you need are strawberries and chocolate chips. But a bowl of whipped cream never hurt as a topping for what’s about to be an irresistibly gooey bowl of fruit and chocolate-y goodness.
To get there, first core the strawberries. You want to take out enough of the white insides that you can stuff them full of chocolate. To ensure they stand upright on a flat surface, cut a bit off the bottoms too, so you have a base. Then, simply stuff all the berries with chocolate.
When this baking sheet goes into the oven, something miraculous happens. As the chocolate melts, the strawberries soften into denser, jammy versions of themselves. Together in one bite, they become an almost pudding-like mouthful, ideally paired with ice cream or whipped cream.
Get the simple but impressive recipe below.
Roasted Chocolate-Stuffed Strawberries
2 ounces dark chocolate, roughly chopped
12 to 16 large strawberries, the bigger the better!
Ice cream or whipped cream, for serving.
Preheat the oven to 400°F.
Slice off the very tops and bottoms of the strawberries so they sit straight up. Using a small spoon, working from the top, hollow out the strawberries to create a hole/cavity.
Fill each strawberry with chocolate and place on a sheet pan or baking dish. Roast 10 to 12 minutes, or until the chocolate is melted.
Serve over ice cream or yogurt. Or eat on their own with whipped cream or a dusting of powdered sugar.
