Some things are worth ignoring my diet for, and this chocolate strawberry tower is one of them.
New Zealand desserts generally have less sugar than their American counterparts. After 10 years of living here, I still have not fully adapted my tastes. I can walk away from most NZ sweets without a problem. This week a South African expat friend created this chocolate strawberry tower:
For those who like a few words, even on Wordless Wednesday: This is a pyramid of strawberries, with melted chocolate poured over the top, filling in all the nooks and crannies, like a chocolate fountain.
Then it is put in fridge so the chocolate hardens. The best part, we used small shrimp forks, each taking a turn to stab a berry, and pull it from the chocolate strawberry tower . . . and they never come alone, sometimes two, sometimes three and lots of chocolate.
Have you had a chocolate strawberry tower? Are you going to make one this holiday season?
