Chocolate-Baked Grapefruit
Combining chocolate and grapefruit, this quick and easy dish shows you a new side to citrus. Just mix three ingredients, bake for 5 to 7 minutes, and voilà — dessert is ready!

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

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

Directions
Yield: 2 halves
Serving size: 1/2 grapefruit

1 – 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.
