Strawberries Dusted with Spiced Cocoa

   Chocolate covered strawberries are ultra decadent.  Here is a really fast, really cheap, really easy (and healthy) alternative! 

Strawberries Dusted with Spiced Cocoa
1 pint strawberries
1/4 C powdered sugar
1 Tbsp dark (dutch processed) cocoa powder
1/4 tsp roasted cinnamon
dash (less than 1/8 tsp) cayenne pepper

   Combine sugar, cocoa, and spices.  Use a whisk to work out lumps.  Dip strawberries into mixture.  Lightly knock off extra.
   OR  use a mesh sieve to dust over strawberries (this is prettier, but doesn't pack the same flavor punch as dipping.)
   Serves 4-6 (or more in a party setting.)
   *If doing this for a party, dip strawberries just before guests arrive or just before setting out desserts.
