Dark Chocolate Covered Strawberries with Crunchy Pistachios


1 Pint Fresh, Organic Strawberries, washed and well dried & sliced into halves.
1 C Dark Chocolate Baking Disks (the higher quality, the better).
1/2 C Shelled Pistachios, roughly chopped.

What to Do:

In a double boiler - I set a glass bowl over a medium sized pot - bring 1-2 C of water to a boil. Make sure the water in the pot isn't touching the bowl.

Reduce heat to a medium simmer and add the chocolate to the dry bowl. Stirring very regularly (almost constantly), gently melt the chocolate. Once melted, remove from the heat so the chocolate doesn't burn and set aside.

As the chocolate melts, line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Now, holding onto the greens of the berries, gently dip the strawbs into the chocolate, followed by the pistachios. Set on parchment paper. Repeat until finished. Place in the refrigerator to cool for at least 30 minutes

Serve with a side of sexy... Or maybe some dark red wine.
