Phase II dessert

Top Review by ColCadsMom

I made these, more as a garnish for our dessert than the actual dessert itself...there were 4 of us actually eating them. I used the unsweetened chocolate, so I added a touch of splenda for a little sweetness. I also used light cream instead of wwhipping cream, because that is what I had. These were delicious, and I will make them again as the sttar of the show! Thanks so much!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 ounces semisweet chocolate (2 baking squares) or 2 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped (2 baking squares)
  • 12 tablespoon whipping cream
  • 1 dash almond extract
  • 8 strawberries


  1. Combine the chocolate and the whipping cream in a glass measuring cup or bowl. Microwave at medium power for 1 minute or until the chocolate melts, stirring after 30 seconds. Stir in the almond extract and cool slightly.
  2. Dip each strawberry into the melted chocolate, allowing the excess to drip off. Place on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet. Refrigerate or freeze for approximately 15 min until the chocolate has set.
