Rich, smooth, silky chocolate covers a clean, fresh crunch of strawberry in this wonderful treat!
It was in the 1960’s that a lady named Lorraine Lorusso, had an idea. She worked in a small gourmet store in Chicago, called the Stop n’ Shop. One day, she dipped some fresh strawberries in chocolate, allowed them to harden and sold them to customers. They were an instant success and started a craze.
The classic combination of chocolate and strawberry is still popular today and tops the list of romantic foods normally associated with Valentine’s day, candlelit dinners and wedding receptions.
