My Sweet Lil' Recipe
450g 70% Dark Chocolate (I used Lindt Madagascar)
1 tsp coconut oil (natural as possible)
2 tbsp pink champagne
1 1/2 tbsp brandy
1. Break chocolate into small pieces & melt on medium/low in double boiler (I've also melted chocolate on the second lowest setting in a pot placed directly on the burner). Mix, mix mix!
2. When chocolate pieces are all melted, add remaining ingredients & mix well.
3. Serve with fresh, juicy strawberries!
