I have to admit, I'm easy when it comes to desserts. Drizzle chocolate on something and you have me at hello.
Yesterday I was in the supermarket and the big display of fresh strawberries came complete with those little tubs of meltable chocolate wafers that you stick in the microwave for 2 minutes and make chocolate covered whatever-you-want.
Of course I could not resist. So last night in between stirring the alfredo and sauteing the hot dogs [we have an ecclectic menu around here - especially on nights that it's just me and the kids] I whipped up a batch of these babies.
Instant decadence. Let me tell you, if you want to feel special [and get the kids to do chores before dessert] just chocolate cover some fruit [works well with pretzel rods too, btw!] and presto, you're golden. The kids think you're a magician and you get to feel good about giving them fruit for dessert. [Chocolate is full of anti-oxidants, don't forget, so technically it's a health food.]
Last week we did frozen bananas [I fall for all those marketing ploys at Shop Rite, btw. If it looks good, I'll try it.] They loved those, too.
If only broccoli tasted good covered in chocolate.
