Strawberries with Chocolate Orange Fondue

½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
3 oz. white baking chocolate, chopped
3 tablespoons cream
1 tablespoon orange juice
1 to 2 teaspoons grated orange peel
1 qt. fresh strawberries, rinsed and patted dry

Place chocolate chips, white chocolate and cream in medium microwave-save bowl. Microwave on High Power for 30 seconds. Stir until chocolate is melted and smooth. An additional 15 to 30 seconds on High may be necessary if chocolate is not completely melted. DO NOT OVERHEAT. Stir in orange juice and orange peel.

Place chocolate mixture in 3-cup fondue pot over very low heat. Using fondue forks, dip strawberries into chocolate.

Tip: 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips can be used instead of the combination of semi-sweet and white chocolate; add an additional 1 tablespoon orange juice.

Yield: 1 cup sauce.

Strawberries (about | recipes)
Strawberries are bursting with healthy goodness (as if you needed another reason--in addition to its fantastic, sweet taste--to enjoy them). They are so easy to get into your diet, too—enjoy them sliced fresh over a bowl of cereal with milk for a nutritious breakfast, or make a fresh strawberry pie—sweet and decadent, yet surprisingly good for you. Beautiful, fragrant, and tasty, they are one of the produce aisle’s most appealing residents, and make any meal more special when they appear on the dessert try.

Oranges (about | recipes)
Although they haven't been proven to cure colds, that doesn't mean an orange's high levels of vitamin C aren't having an effect. Vitamin C reduces your body's histamine levels, a naturally occurring chemical that causes red eyes and a runny nose. Oranges are good for other reasons, too - they're high in folic acid and, like many other fruits and vegetables, they also contain several phytochemicals that may reduce the risk of cancer.
