Chocolate-baked grapefruit

Preparation time: 5 minutes
Baking time: 5–7 minutes

Chocolate-baked grapefruit

1 grapefruit (at room temperature)
1 tablespoon mini semisweet chocolate chips
2 small strawberries

Preheat oven to 350°F. Cut a thin slice off each end of the grapefruit (so that the grapefruit halves won’t roll around) and slice grapefruit in half crosswise. Using a knife, gently cut around grapefruit sections to loosen them inside the skin; remove seeds. Sprinkle each grapefruit half evenly with 1/2 tablespoon chocolate chips. Place grapefruit halves in a pan and bake uncovered for 5 to 7 minutes, or until chocolate chips soften. Top each grapefruit half with a strawberry and serve immediately.
