Dessert for Lovers
This dessert to share is full of intoxicating flavors and easy to make! You can make the chocolate covered strawberries hours ahead of time and quickly assemble the rest in mere minutes when you are ready to serve.
8 ounces good quality chocolate chips
4 ounces chopped almonds
2 Tbsp sea salt
8 dried apricots, halved
1/4 cup almonds, whole
6 ounces blue cheese, crumbled
Honey for drizzling
Melt the chocolate chips in a double boiler. If you do not have a double boiler just use a bowl over a pot of simmering water.
Dip the strawberries in the melted chocolate and immediately sprinkle the chopped almonds and sea salt on the chocolate. Allow to set on a wire rack until chocolate has hardened.
Just before serving, scatter the apricots, almonds and blue cheese on a plate. Drizzle with honey and place the chocolate covered strawberries on top. This dessert is enough for a couple to share.
