Rocky road strawberries
Prep time: 15 minutes, plus chill time
Cooking: 5 minutes
- 100 g dark chocolate (70% cocoa solids), chopped
- 1 tablespoon shredded coconut
- 8 mini pink and white marshmallows, quartered
- 1 tablespoon slivered almonds, toasted
- 8 extra-large strawberries
Place the chocolate in a small heatproof bowl set over a small saucepan of gently simmering water, making sure the base of the bowl does not touch the water. Stir for 1–2 minutes or until the chocolate is melted and smooth. Remove from the heat, keeping the bowl over the saucepan.
Line a large baking tray with baking paper.
Combine the coconut, marshmallow and almonds in a small bowl.
Using their green tops to hold, dip one strawberry at a time into the melted chocolate, then immediately dip into the coconut mixture to coat. Place on the prepared tray. Chill for 20 minutes or until set firm. Serve chilled. YUM!
