You'll want to start the festivities off by making the frozen yogurt, so it has a bit of time to sit in the freezer while you make and eat dinner. Since it's made in a food processor you may want to whip it up just before the kids go to bed, if you're afraid it'll disturb their sleep. This is not a make ahead frozen yogurt though, if it sits for too long (a couple of hours) in the freezer it'll become too hard to eat.
This dessert takes no effort and is much healthier then the ones you'll get from the store. All you do is whiz it up, scoop it into serving bowls and place it in the freezer. When it's time to serve, melt the chocolate shell and pour it over the frozen yogurt - dessert is served. Instant Strawberry Frozen Yogurt
This can also be made in a blender but you will need to put the yogurt in the bottom first and you'll have to stop the blender occasionally to dislodge any pieces of fruit that get caught up in the blades.
