A Chocolate-Covered New Year's Eve Treat

 

It's that time of year again. The holiday cookies are making their last rounds before they finally disappear, and the idea of New Year's resolutions is on everyone's minds. Do you have any resolutions for 2016? If one of those resolutions is to enjoy more easy-to-make and low-calorie treats, then these delicious chocolate covered strawberries from Health couldn't be a more perfect match for you. We especially love this classic recipe because it involves chopped pistachios, which give these sweet strawberries a salty edge as well. If you don't have the time (or the finger stamina) to shell that many pistachios, simply buy them already shelled instead.

A really awesome tip here if you make a lot of confections that require melted chocolate is to use a pot of hot water beneath a glass bowl to melt the chocolate. This melts it much more gently than microwaving, which can sometimes yield uneven results and a lot of times can burn the chocolate.  To check out how easily this simple dessert comes together, check out the video at the bottom! This treat would be a wonderful addition to the New Year's Eve spread. In addition, we have assembled some more great ideas for your celebrations below:
