If you guessed strawberries, you’d be right!
Featured snack recovery: Chocolate-dipped Strawberries
Earlier, I came clean about my disastrous snack failure with the pineapple cream cheese icing.
As soon as I got home on Tuesday, I went right to work doctoring this tongue-curdler. The pineapple had liquified the mixture (maybe due to the high acidity of the pineapple?), so I dumped it all into a saucepan and mixed in my new favorite thickener, ground flax meal. I brought it to a boil so the flax could do its work, and then I attacked the bitterness with all the non-bitter things I could find — dates, maple syrup, bananas, cocoa powder, peanut butter, and more ricotta — until the nightmarish taste was completely camoflauged. I froyo’d 1/2 cup of the final product and set it up like so:
(With cookie crumbs and cinnamon for extra excitement.)
My kitchen-sink froyo has done well for me on the dessert front this week 🙂
Coincidentally, while I’ve been enjoying my makeshift chocolate-dipped strawberries, Wife and her boyfriend Ted have been enjoying the real deal down in Georgia!
Featured Guest Snack: Wife’s Strawberries
Last weekend, Wife and Ted enjoyed a fun activity together in something called nature. I’m not quite sure what this nature thing is, but it looks very pretty. Here’s what Wife had to say:
We went strawberry picking bright and early. Wife, they are so big and beautiful and delicious! They taste like they’ve been injected with sugar! I’m going to chocolate dip some.
Wife sent along these pictures from their strawberry-picking adventure:
And the resulting party dessert she made for a friend’s BBQ that night:
But apparently, nobody liked them:
The strawberries were really a hit yesterday. Steve was practically crying while eating them because he thought they were so delicious!
