Chocolate Covered Strawberries filled with Jalapeño Jelly

Just when I thought I’d tried just about EVERYTHING with Ojai Jalapeño Jelly on it or in it…
Then I melted some dark chocolate that my son got for me @ Trader Joes- OMG!!!  Crazy delicious.
You can buy the injecting ‘tool’ @ Sur la Table or Williams Sanoma.

2 Trader Joes Dark Chocolate Bars, melted (73% super dark)
10 large, fresh, organic strawberries (washed, dried off a little so the chocolate will stick)

Melt the chocolate over a double boiler, unless your flame is very low and steady.

Let the chocolate cool for a few minutes, then, using the stem as a handle, dip the strawberries in the chocolate.
Twirl until strawberries are covered evenly.

Fill an injector tool with Ojai Jalapeño Jelly, put Jelly in the berries, then place in the freezer for 5 minutes to harden the chocolate.
