1 pint fresh strawberries, rinsed and hulled
1 pkg. (6 oz.) white chocolate baking pieces
2 tablespoons milk
1 container (12 oz) extra-creamy-style frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 or 2 drops red food coloring, optional
Mint sprigs for garnish, optional
Reserve some small berries for garnish. Coarsely chop remaining berries and set aside.
In a microwave safe 3 quart bowl, place baking pieces and milk. Microwave on Medium-High (70% power) 1-1/2 to 2-1/2 minutes until beginning to melt. Using a whisk, stir well to combine. Let cool slightly then add chopped strawberries and mix well.
If desired, reserve about 1/2 cup whipped topping to use as garnish. Using a double sided spatula, fold remaining topping, and if desired, food coloring into strawberry mixture.
Divide mixture evenly into 4 dessert cups. Chill until ready to serve.
To serve, if desired, garnish each with about 1 tablespoon of the reserved whipped topping, a reserved berry and a mint sprig.
Makes 4 servings.
