Makes 2 ½ cups - 4 servings
Your best-loved fruit bonbon in a bowl. This soup is hard to beat. The chocolate sauce is speedy to prepare, but your jarred favorite from the supermarket works just fine. For a festive presentation, serve in a clear glass dessert bowl or a martini glass with a strawberry over the rim.
For the soup
2 cups sliced strawberries
1 cup plain yogurt
¼ cup red grape juice or sweet and fragrant red wine, such as muscat
1 tablespoon sugar, or to taste
For the chocolate sauce
1 ounce unsweetened baking chocolate
1 teaspoon butter
3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
1 tablespoon cream or half-and-half
To complete the recipe
Sprigs of fresh mint and whole strawberries for garnish
Purée all the soup ingredients in a blender. Adjust the sweetening to taste. Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours before serving.
Meanwhile, make the chocolate sauce. Stir the chocolate and butter in the top pan of a double boiler over simmering water until melted. Remove the top pan from the double boiler. Whisk in the maple syrup and cream until smooth. Serve immediately or set aside and bring to room temperature.
To serve, drizzle a swirl of chocolate sauce over bowls of the chilled soup and garnish with fresh mint and strawberries.
This soup and the chocolate sauce will keep in separate covered containers in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. When chilled, the sauce becomes firm; reheat in the microwave on high for about 30 seconds, or until softened; stir before using.
