Strawberries & chocolate are synonymous with Valentine’s day. This recipe has been a part of our household for many years. I have brought this recipe to many gatherings with a variety of fruits and it’s always a H-U-G-E hit. My favorite part, as always, is how super easy this choco-licious dip & tortilla dippers are to make. I believe that it’s the simplest things in life that always make every day special & that is why I love the simplest of recipes that are full of flavor & yum. I don’t mind the complicated ones from time to time, but I’d rather have a big stack of quick & easy recipes to fall back on that compliment our busy lives, make life special & fill it with good tasting memories!
Choco-licious Strawberry Dip by Jodie Fitz
½ cup white chocolate or dark chocolate morsels
4 oz. frozen whipped topping, thawed
Wash and hull the strawberries. Set aside.
Thaw the whipped topping completely. Melt the chocolate in a glass dish for one minute. The chocolate will not look fully melted until you stir it together and melt it the rest of the way. Let the chocolate set for a minute so that it’s not scalding hot when added into the whipped topping. Fold the melted chocolate and whipped topping together. If you use the dark chocolate add 1/8 teaspoon of Price Chopper vanilla extract. Serve chilled as a dip with fresh strawberries.
Cinnamon Tortilla Dippers by Jodie Fitz
4 flour tortillas
1 tablespoon sugar
1 ½ teaspoons cinnamon
Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees.
Mix together the sugar and cinnamon in a bowl and set aside.
Using a pizza cutter, cut each tortilla into eight triangular pieces by cutting the pizza into half, then fourth’s then eighth’s. Place the tortilla wedges onto a non-stick baking sheet. Using a basting brush or paper towel, simply wet the top of the tortilla and sprinkle the top with cinnamon-sugar. Bake for approximately 15-20 minutes, until the tortillas are crunchy, but only slightly browned. Remove them from the oven and let cool.
