Instead of a dozen roses, give a dozen of these pretty treats to your special someone. The pistachios add satisfying crunch and healthful antioxidants. And since a serving of strawberries has more vitamin C than an orange, you won’t have to feel guilty about indulging in these treats.

INGREDIENTS

SERVES 6

  • 1/3 cup Roasted & Salted Shelled Pistachios
  • 2 cups strawberries
  • 5 oz Baking Chunks Semisweet Chocolate

DIRECTIONS

1 Finely chop the pistachios. Transfer to a teacup or small bowl. Set aside.
2 Place 12 strawberries on an unbleached parchment paper-lined bak¬ing sheet.
3 Melt the chopped chocolate (about 60% cacao) in a double boiler (or heatproof bowl placed over simmering water).
4 One at a time, hold strawberry by the stem (or leaves) and dunk about 3/4 of it into the melted chocolate to coat, allowing excess chocolate to drip back into double boiler (or bowl), then dunk into the chopped pistachios to coat about 1/4 of the strawberry. Place back onto the lined baking sheet. Repeat with remaining strawberries.
5 Chill in the refrigerator until chocolate is set. Store in the refrigerator. Box up as desired for gifting, keeping chilled.
