1/2 Photos of Lighter Chocolate Covered Strawberries
Little Bee's Note:
I used to always make these with shortening and milk chocolate but I found a lighter version using Canola Oil(rich in monounsaturated fats)instead of shortening(mostly saturated fat) and when I made these for New Years Eve not only are they lower in fat but I think the dark chocolate(also lower in fat) really better enhances the flavor of the strawberries. I came across this while searching for appetizer's for guests watching their weight. My guest's have yet to try them but I have sampled one and they are fabulous!Great to serve during the Holidays, at Showers, or Wedding.
