    Line baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

    To melt chocolate, place coarsely chopped dark chocolate in top of double boiler over hot, not boiling, water. Melt chocolate, stirring until smooth. Remove top of double boiler from simmering water.

    Alternately, melt chocolate in microwave on low power, stirring every few seconds until soft and creamy.

    Dip each strawberry into melted chocolate, giving a little shake as you withdraw it. Swirl with a quick motion to release any extra chocolate. Place on lined baking sheet. Repeat with remaining strawberries.

    Melt white chocolate in the same manner as dark chocolate. Transfer to a small plastic bag and cut a tiny hole in the corner. Drizzle white chocolate back and forth over dark chocolate, coating berries in a zigzag fashion. Cool dipped fruit on baking sheet at room temperature in a cool place. Best served the same day.

    Serves 2.

    Waffled Chicken Quesadillas with Chipotle Pepper Sauce

    Waffled Chicken Quesadillas with Chipotle Pepper Sauce

    These whimsical weeknight quesadillas offer a great excuse to break out the long-forgotten waffle iron. The smoky, tangy pepper sauce is the perfect sidekick for this dish, but it’s also wonderful when tossed with pasta, stuffed into sandwiches, and slathered on burgers. TIP : When assembling quesadillas, keep fillings centred 1/2 in (1.25 cm) from the edge of the tortilla so they don’t spill over. TIP : Chipotle chiles are dried, smoked jalapenos. Adobo is a slightly sweet red sauce. Put them together in a can and they become a versatile pantry staple to add deep smoky heat to sauces, dips, marinades, and soups. No waffle iron? Then make these quesadillas using this skillet method. Place 1 tortilla in skillet, preferably cast iron, and cook over medium heat until dark spots appear and bottom is crispy, about 1 1/2 minutes. Turn over and cook until crispy and darkened on the other side. Remove tortilla from skillet and replace with another tortilla. Cook until darkened and crispy on one side, flip, and top with stuffing ingredients. Place crispy tortilla on top, press down gently, cover pan, and cook for 1 minute, or until cheese has melted.
