Last week our friends dropped off fresh strawberries that they picked up at a farm stand on the way back from Santa Barbara. They were so sweet and begging to be incorporated into some sort of summertime dessert. I whipped up a batch of homemade strawberry ice cream, which was delicious, but as it turned out, there’s such thing as too sweet. As a way to balance out the flavors, I scooped them into little balls and coated them in a bittersweet dark chocolate shell, otherwise known as bonbons. They were amazing I can’t wait to try out other flavor combinations – next up, peanut butter and then salty caramel.
