Chocolate Dipped Strawberries

Posted by on

Ingredients

  • 24-30 strawberries, fresh
  • 6 ounces of white chocolate
  • 8 ounces of dark chocolate

Method

1 Wash and dry the strawberries, making sure the berries are fully dry as water will cause chocolate to seize up.

2 Melt the white chocolate in a double boiler or microwave. Follow the melting directions on the package.

3 Dip the strawberry in the white chocolate, holding onto the stem or the "shoulders" of the strawberry. Give it a quick little twist and shake with your fingers to shake off the excess and then point it at the ceiling for a second or two to ensure that the chocolate adheres. Place on a piece of wax paper to let dry.

4 Melt the dark chocolate according to the instructions on the package. Dip the strawberry in at a 45 degree angle from both sides to make the "jacket". Let the excess drip off. Place on wax paper to dry.

5 Place some melted dark chocolate into a piping bag with a very small tip, or in a ziplock bag with the little corner snipped off and pipe on buttons and bow tie.

6 Allow to dry and cool. (If drying seems to go too slowly, place them in the freezer for about 3-5 minutes.)

Best eaten the day they are made.
