Healthy Chocolate Covered Strawberries
I started off by putting a teaspoon of baking cocoa powder in a sandwich baggie. I added in a sprinkle of cinnamon and 1/2 a packet of Equal. I mixed it together - then washed my strawberries, dried them just a tad, then cut them into pieces and added those pieces into my sandwich baggie with the cocoa mixture.
I sealed the bag shut and shook it up -- the powdered ingredients easily covering the strawberries. I then dropped them into a bowl and ate as a side to my breakfast (ham sandwich on wheat). The strawberries were delicious! The cocoa turned a little wet so it wasn't dry and ready to choke me at any minute. Some of the strawberries as they sat in the bowl got very chocolatey. Sinfully delicious!
This was 0 Points Plus Values since the teaspoon of cocoa powder was 0 pts -- and strawberries are free under the plan.
