Strawberries with Balsamic Chocolate Sauce recipe


1 cup Balsamic vinegar
2 ounces square Bakers Baking chocolate squares (crumbled)
1 pint as purchased, yields Strawberries (rinsed, stemmed and sliced)
1 tsp. Sugar


Place the balsamic vinegar in a small stainless steel or non-reactive sauce pan over medium heat. When the vinegar comes to a boil reduce the heat so that the liquid is simmering. Cook for about 30 - 40 minutes until reduced to 1/4 cup.

Cool slightly and then add the chocolate. Whisk until the chocolate is melted and let cool for about 30 minutes.

While the vinegar is reducing combine the sliced strawberries and sugar in a bowl and toss until well blended. Refrigerate for at least an hour.

Divide the strawberries between two bowls when ready to serve. Top each serving with 1 tablespoon of the balsamic chocolate sauce.

Recipe Notes

Our team member said, “The first time that I had a balsamic reduction on berries.” This is the perfect dessert: sweet, peppery, sour, and even just a bit salty. This can only be surpassed by the really good stuff – 25 year old balsamic vinegar on strawberries.

This is a great variation on that recipe, with a hint of chocolate to make a rich, luscious sauce that’s perfect on strawberries.

"The strawberry: Doubtless God could have made a better berry, but doubtless God never did."
