- 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.
Yield: 2 halves.
Serving size: 1/2 grapefruit.
