Product Talk: Strawberries


Growing up I absolutely loved to dip my strawberries in whipped cream, but my new favorite way to eat strawberries is to dip them in dark chocolate. Dark chocolate has antioxidants, so eating a little chocolate in moderation is actually beneficial to your health. Strawberries are a good source of folate, potassium, fiber, vitamin C, and manganese.

Here is a recipe that includes vitamin C rich strawberries, dark chocolate with antioxidants, and chopped pecans with unsaturated fats to make for your valentine.

Chocolate-Pecan Covered Strawberries
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Serves: 10

Ingredients:
1 lb. strawberries
6 oz. dark chocolate
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup chopped pecans

Directions:
Wash and dry strawberries. Add chocolate to a microwavable bowl. Microwave chocolate for 30 seconds and stir; repeat in intervals of 15 seconds until chocolate is melted. Stir vanilla into chocolate.  Dip strawberries into chocolate and then chopped pecans; place strawberries on wax paper to harden.
