Chocolate Dipped Strawberries; How Cool!? Hello friends. Happy Monday.So do you have any chocolate that needs using up from Easter? I know my children have.
We have some left-over Lindt chocolate and some white gluten-free chocolate left-over that my children are not fussed with.
(I know what your thinking because I am! Who leaves Lindt chocolate!! I love it).
So if you have some leftover chocolate too, how about melting some down and making some chocolate-dipped strawberries? Especially yummy using quality chocolate.
They are rather tasty and healthier than a lot of chocolate at once and for that reason, what’s not to love?
How To Make Chocolate Dipped Strawberries:
Strawberries and chocolate are a match made in heaven make a delicious treat and a healthier alternative to a bar of chocolate. Of course, why not experiment with different flavoured chocolates too?
Make: 20 strawberries
Prep time: 30 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes
200g dark chocolate
20 strawberries (approx.)
100g white chocolate buttons
A range of food colouring (optional)
Small cake decorations such as silver balls or hundred and thousands (optional)
What To Do:
1.) Firstly, start by melting the dark chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of barely simmering water. Make sure the base of the bowl does not touch the water. Break the chocolate into small pieces and allow to melt slowly without stirring. While this is happening, lay a piece of parchment paper down.
2.) Once the chocolate has melted, remove from the heat, and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Holding the strawberry by the leaves dip the strawberry completely into the chocolate, right up to top, so just the green is left. Hold the strawberry up and allow the excess to drip off.
3.) Carefully lay the strawberry down onto the parchment paper and allow to cool completely. Continue with all the strawberries.
4.) Melt the white chocolate in the same way, once melted divide the chocolate into bowls and if using food colouring, colour the white chocolate with the different food colouring at this stage.
5.) Pour the melted white chocolate into disposable piping bags. Snip a tiny hole in the end of the piping bag, and drizzle the chocolate over the strawberries. You could do lines, dots or zigzags and alternate colours and designs. If you don’t have a piping bag, use a teaspoon to drizzle the chocolate over the strawberries.
6.) Attach decorations (if using) while the white chocolate is still melted and tacky. Use any remaining white chocolate to coat some extra strawberries. Allow to set completely, and enjoy the same day.
