Strawberries and kiwis - an edible flower power

I made a blunder there, and I'm salvaging here, and there. I combined the 100% cacao unsweetened chocolate(from Ghirardelli), with one of my favorites - dark chocolate truffle ($1.99 from Trader Joes) to make melting chocolate.


Then I turned it to Flower Power! for Sugar High Fridays, together with strawberries and kiwis. Perfect, edible flowers, for sure!

Edible Flowers of Fruits and Chocolate
Step 1. Combine 100% cacao unsweetened chocolate with some dark chocolate truffle (half-half ratio) for the melted chocolate. (Note: Melt the chocolate in a heat-proof container/cup/bowl, above a pot of hot, non-simmering/non-boiling water - double boiler method, over the stove top).
Stir chocolate until smooth.
Step 2. Give the strawberries a light rinse and dab dry with paper towel
Step 3. Then just half-dip the strawberries in the deep dark melted chocolate. Pure indulgence, once again. What does it look like?
Step 4. Cut up some kiwis and decorate as shown. What does it look like now?
