It took me about 1/2 my life thus far to even TRY a chocolate covered strawberry. I couldn’t figure out how the two flavors would mesh. WOWSER what I was missing! I like the dark chocolate but semi-sweet chocolate works just as well. Up to your individual taste. Here’s what goodness looks like:
I couldn’t help but show how you the end product first. Cannot wait to eat them, and I started like this:
Plan ahead a little bit – wash your strawberries and them pat them dry a few times with new paper towels, then air dry. If they aren’t dry, your chocolate will not be their friend. Either melt your chocolate on LOW in a double boiler or microwave, stirring occasionally. I would like to say dunk them by their stems, but that doesn’t always work so swell for me – you can always stick a toothpick in the top. Dunk and twirl, dunk and twirl, etc. You get the pic. So, I just gotta admit, I’m going to take a break and cheer for the 16.1 hand colt that all of America is praying will win. AND HE DID! After a 37 year hiatus, we have a Triple Crown Winner!
I assembled my “supplies” and got started after the strawberries were dry:
After refrigerating, I melted some white chocolate and being too lazy to seek out my piping bag, I put it in a small sandwich bag and then snipped the corner. I piped it around on them to make them pretty, then back to the fridge to set up. Enjoy!
