An Emily Original!
I’m not sure how this idea came to me — but earlier this week James and I were delighting in very sweet and juicy strawberries. Later in the week we picked up some hot fudge sauce for ice cream sundaes. At some point after eating delicious fruit with scrumptous chocolate sauce, a word popped into my head: peppermint.
Could it be? Could this work?
As my Grandma Doe says, “time waits for no one.” In this case, it was time to put this idea into being. Recipe ideas should not go untried! So tried I did, and now I come here to say, this delectable treat is tried and true!
1 carton fresh Strawberries
1 cup hot fudge sauce
1 tsp peppermint extract
1. Wash strawberries.
2. Wrap a plate with saran wrap (this is where you’ll put the strawberries after they’ve been dipped.)
2. Melt chocolate sauce in the microwave (or stovetop would work, too.)
3. Once chocolate is melted stir in peppermint.
Note: I made these on a small scale, so I’m “guestimating” these proportions. Melt the chocolate and add a little bit of peppermint at a time until you get the taste you want.
4. dip strawberries until entire berry is covered in chocolaty goodness. Put in fridge for at least 4 hours or overnight.
