This is a fun take on the good ol’ banana split!  Don’t be too scared off by the idea of coring strawberries… it’s actually super simple!  It takes just a couple of seconds per strawberry using a tomato corer (they’re really inexpensive)!  For the fudge sauce I used my homemade 5 minute Wicked Fudge Sauce as it keeps well in the fridge and I usually have it on hand.

When choosing strawberries for this recipe, try to choose the largest you can find.  Smaller strawberries will work but the bigger ones are easier to work with .  Be sure your strawberries are very dry before dipping in the chocolate because water can make the chocolate seize up!  If you’d like to prep these ahead of time,  you can prepare the filling up to 1 day ahead and refrigerate. The strawberries can then be assembled a couple of hours ahead of time.
