Total Time: 8 hrs 45 mins

  • 12 medium strawberries, rinsed and dried 
  • 2 cups prosecco or other sparkling wine 
  • ⅓ cup bittersweet chocolate chips (2 ounces)


Step 1
In a medium mixing bowl, combine strawberries and prosecco. To keep the strawberries soaked, place a dish on top of them. Refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight, covered.
