Sensual, Slim Dessert

From Self's November 2008 feature of Eat Healthy All Week, here is an easy way to make delicious chocolate covered strawberries that won't ruin your healthy eating plans.

Chocolate-Covered Strawberries

Makes 4 strawberries


  • 1/4 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 4 large fresh strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons slivered almonds


  1. Melt chocolate and butter in a microwave-safe glass bowl in the microwave on high until chips melt, 20 to 30 seconds. Dip each strawberry into chocolate, then almonds. Set on a sheet of wax paper or a plate until cool. Serve 2. (Refrigerate other 2 in a resealable plastic bag for Friday's dessert.)
