Kinder Kitchen children's party recipe - strawberries dipped in chocolate

It could not be easier. During the summer months when strawberries are abundant, tasty and not too expensive to buy, this is a great idea for a BBQ or a dessert at a children's party. Nutritious, tasty and easy all in one.

Strawberries dipped in chocolate

1 punnet of strawberries
1 packet of dark/milk chocolate
2 tbsp water

1. Remove the strawberries and wash them under running water. Dry them with a tea towel
2. Fill a saucepan up half-way with water and bring to a boil. Once boiled, turn the heat down and allow the water to simmer
3. Break the chocolate up into small pieces and place them in a bowl along with the water. Place the bowl over the simmering water and allow the chocolate to melt, stirring constantly.
4. Turn the heat off, remove the bowl from the saucepan and dip the strawberries into the chocolate. Place the strawberries onto some baking parchment and once the chocolate has hardened, keep refrigerated until you serve.

Serving suggestion
For an adult version, pop a spoonful or two of your favourite liqueur into the melted chocolate e.g. Brandy, Cointreau
