Ingredients

  • ¾ cup heavy cream
  • 2 10-ounce packages dark chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Heat heavy cream over medium heat in a small saucepan. Bring the cream to a simmer, then remove from heat.
  • Pour one package of dark chocolate chips into a heat-safe bowl. Pour the heated cream over the top of the chocolate chips and allow to rest for five minutes.
  • Stir the chocolate mixture until well combined, then add all but one tablespoon of the crushed strawberries. Stir to combine.
  • Place the chocolate mixture in the refrigerator to chill for at least one hour.
  • Heat the remaining chocolate chips in the microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring between each interval, until melted.
  • Using a tablespoon or cookie scoop, scoop out the chocolate mixture and form into balls. Dip each ball in melted chocolate and top with a sprinkle of crushed strawberries.
  • Allow the chocolate to cool and set before serving.
