If you are looking to make a special treat for your loved ones this Valentine's Day, I have the perfect treat for you - 'Chocolate Strawberries'. The best part is, since this decadent treat is technically fruit, even your calorie conscious mum will be able to enjoy them.
Chocolate Covered Strawberries
8 ounces Semisweet, milk or dark chocolate, chopped into chunks
4 ounces white chocolate, chopped into chunks
1 pound strawberries with stems (about 20 strawberries), washed and dried completely
Put the chopped chocolates into 2 separate glass or ceramic bowls. Place them in the microwave on medium power for approximately 1 minute. Remove the bowls, stir the semi-melted chocolates and heat for another minute or until they are completely melted.
Putting It All Together
Line a cookie sheet with parchment or waxed paper before you begin.
Hold the strawberry by the stem and dip it into the chocolate (dark) and twist it gently as you lift it from the bowl. Place the covered strawberries onto the lined cookie sheet to dry. After you are done, dip a fork in the melted white chocolate and create a zigzag pattern by drizzling it back and forth over the strawberries. Let the strawberries sit for about 30 minutes or until the chocolate is set. Kick back and enjoy with your loved ones! Yummm!
Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!
