While I personally do not appreciate fruit with my chocolate, strawberry makes me reconsider my stance. The tangy, delicious fruit and chocolate is the most widely eaten combo there is. Melt a bar of chocolate, dip in a strawberry and forget all your worries. Lemon and lemon zest is the core ingredient in many chocolate desserts. Reason – lemon has the tendency to enhance the flavor of chocolate. Orange and chocolate for me is a big no no, but too many people have sworn it works. I just might give it a try.

Dry fruits
