Despite the fact that chocolate has been around since 1100 B.C. and strawberries had been found growing wild in Italy as early as 234 B.C., it was not until a woman by the name of Lorraine Lorusso combined the two in the 1960’s in her little shop called the Stop N’ Shop in Chicago that Chocolate Covered Strawberries were born.
She took a tempered version of the gourmet chocolate served in her store dipped the freshest strawberries she could find into the mixture and allowed the chocolate to harden and then displayed it for her customers.
As you know it was an instant success. Since then fruit and chocolate have been the perfect pair!
