What you need:

  • 6 oz. semisweet
  • chocolate chips
  • 1⁄4 cup heavy cream
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon orange extract
  • 16 oz. fresh strawberries, washed, stems removed
  • Biscotti, optional

What to do: 

  1. Place chocolate, cream, and the extracts in a microwave-safe bowl.
  2. In the microwave, heat at high power for 30 seconds, remove from the oven, and stir until combined and smooth.
  3. Microwave for an additional 15 to 30 seconds, if needed, to melt the chocolate.
  4. Serve in a warm bowl with strawberries and biscotti, if desired.

For your child's safety, it's best to keep dippers short with rounded edges. These utensils work well:

  • Bamboo skewers (using scissors, cut off pointed tips and trim to 6-inch lengths)
  • Cocktail straws
  • Popsicle sticks
  • Small seafood forks
