Mexican Chocolate Dipping Sauce with Fresh Strawberries

This Mexican Chocolate Dipping Sauce has been sponsored by Earth Fare but all opinions are my own.

A few days ago, I wrote about my shopping experience at Earth Fare grocery store.  I made Vegetarian Burrito Bowls for dinner that night and they were a delicious and filling meatless Monday recipe.  It was a very inexpensive meal to make so I had plenty of grocery money left over to treat myself to something decadent.  My go to dessert will almost always include chocolate and the selection at Earth Fare was amazing.  I loved that you can find organic and sustainable chocolate options in a wide array of flavors.  I decided to try making a Mexican chocolate dipping sauce to pair with the fresh strawberries I found.  If you are not familiar with Mexican chocolate, the flavor is truly unique.  This article from WiseGeek.com explains the qualities of Mexican Chocolate and how it got its taste. Basically, Mexican chocolate is a chocolate that is prepared with certain spices for a very unique flavor. The texture is slightly different than traditional chocolate but it really gives an amazing flavor to this Mexican chocolate fruit dip recipe!  I paired it with fresh strawberries since they were seasonal this month but everything tastes better dipped in chocolate, right?  The flavor of cinnamon and the heat from the hot chilies in the Mexican chocolate are a wonderful pairing for fresh fruit!  This chocolate recipe is truly unique and one I think you will really enjoy!
