Chocolate covered strawberries are great for the holidays, but also for a fun anytime dessert. We spiked our chocolate with cayenne pepper for some heat. It’s such a good burn.

- 30 strawberries
- 14 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
- 3 tablespoons Crisco
- 6 ounces white chocolate
- 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Heat a small pot to low heat and add semi-sweet chocolate with 2 tablespoons Crisco. It is best to use a double-boiler for this, but if you don't have one, be sure to keep the heat low. Stir often until chocolate is melted and smooth.
Sprinkle cayenne pepper into chocolate a bit at a time and mix until fully blended.
Grip the stem and dip each strawberry into the chocolate and coat each side.
Set the chocolate strawberries on wax paper to cool. Refrigerate to speed up the process.
Heat a separate small pot to low heat and add white chocolate with 1 tablespoon Crisco. Again, a double boiler is best, but if you don't have one, keep the heat low and stir often until melted and smooth.
Hold each strawberry over the white chocolate, and with a small spoon, drizzle white chocolate over the strawberry in a small but steady stream. Be creative with your designs.
Set the strawberries on wax paper to cool.
