Chocolate Covered Berries

Chocolate Covered Berries

There is no Easter without chocolate! Fact!

Growing up Easter Sunday was that one day of the year when you’d get more chocolate that you could ever handle; eat so much the stuff and feel so sick that you would not be able to face another drop of it for a whole year until it was time for the easter bunny to visit once more and do it all over again!

While I will not justify going on a chocolate binge, I am not willing to give up the tradition of having chocolate at Easter. This year I decided to go a little healthier and boost my chocolate with vitamins, antioxidants and fibre! Easy and delicious it also makes a lovely thoughtful handmade present!

Ingredients:

  • Chocolate (1 bar is enough for 1 box of strawberries and a few blueberries)
  • Berries (strawberry and blueberries are my favorites)

Method:

1 - I like to make things as easy as I can so I used the microwave, but you can always use the hob and melt it in 'bain marie' . It took 3 minutes to melt a bar of dark chocolate (give it a stir every minute). And 2 minutes for the milk chocolate. Check constantly though as it is easy to burn chocolate if you leave it too long.

2- Line a tray with foil or clean film.

3- Dip berries in chocolate and place on tray

4 -Once most of the chocolate is gone and there is not enough to dip, stir in some blueberries.

5- Place tray in the fridge to set for 5 minutes before serving.

Happy Healthy Easter Everyone!
