Gourmet Chocolate Covered Strawberries

First stop, strawberries. Go to the nearest supermarket and buy some fresh strawberries and treat yourself with oozing vitamin C goodness. Almost anything goes perfectly well with chocolate therefore we are going to partner our fresh strawberries with some heavenly chocolate.

All you need for this dessert are 2 ounces of high quality dark chocolate and 12 strawberries. (Yep, that’s it.) These are the easy steps to prepare it:

  1. Place the bars of dark chocolate in a bowl and put it on a microwave. Push the medium button and let it heat for one minute or until the chocolate melts. Don’t forget to stir it occasionally. Or, you may just want to heat your boiler and wait until your chocolate melts.

(You might be thinking why on earth you would still go on so much trouble if you could just buy chocolate syrup or something like that. Well, your chocolate syrup has a lot of unwanted calories that we are trying to avoid. This is why we are trying to melt those ounces of dark chocolate instead.)

  1. Next up: wash your strawberries and then place them on a clean paper towel to dry. After that, you may now dip those juicy strawberries and enjoy your dessert pack with healthy dose of vitamin C.

White bread is a no-no when you’re on a diet. So, instead of cheating on your diet, why don’t you bake our own healthy bread using minions’ favorite food: bananas.

Let’s chop some bananas and mix it with some cute muffins.

Here are the ingredients:

  • 3 large ripe bananas
  • 1 ½ cup of all-purpose flour, sifted
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 5 tablespoon of melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 12 tablespoons of granulated brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 brown egg
  • ½ teaspoon of salt

Now here are the instructions on how we are going to bake some lovely muffins.

First stop let’s peel off the skin of our bananas then let’s mash them whatever way we like. Yes, we’re to use any style we want as long as they are mashed. Set them aside. Next, preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. After that, let’s combine our dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda in a bowl.

Mix all of them by using a wire whisk. Then set it aside. Now, let’s grab a large mixing bowl and combine our wet ingredients: mashed bananas, butte, egg, vanilla extract and granulated brown sugar. Don’t forget to mix all of them well.

Well, we are now ready to fold-in the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl and be patient for we are going to do this until we will be able to achieve a smooth texture. Look for your lovely paper cups or better yet use some heart-shaped or irregular shaped paper cups to give your muffin a twist. Scoop the mixture that you have prepared in your paper cups.

Be careful with this one because you don’t want to fill your cups completely. It will ruin your muffins. Finally, we are now going to bake it for 13-16 minutes. After which, remove it from the oven. Let your muffins cool for a while by placing it in a wire rack. Save the best for last, dig in and enjoy those muffins packed with healthy banana goodness.
