Easy Strawberry Recipes

We have had a glut of strawberries recently from our visits to the fruit farm, and oh what a joy it has been! The excess of strawberries lounging in our fridge has forced us to explore a whole variety of recipes that have made for very happy family desserts here. So I thought it was time for a round-up of our best finds. starting with the the classic Chocolate Fondue.
