Happy Valentine’s Day! Today I want to share a quick idea for those of you who haven’t yet finalized your Valentine’s day gifts or plans. I personally love Valentine’s Day, because I love love, but I don’t care for boxes of chocolates and over-priced dinners. I think it is so much more meaningful and personal to make something yourself. Chocolate-covered strawberries are surprisingly easy to make, and turn out so beautiful and delicious. Here is what you need.
1 box strawberries with stems
1/2 lb chocolate of your choice ( I like bittersweet so I used 58 % cocoa)
Note: White chocolate is much more technique sensitive, so if this is your first batch, I suggest milk or dark chocolate.
First wash and dry all of the strawberries. It is important to dry them so the chocolate will adhere to them.
Dip each strawberry into the chocolate and let the excess chocolate fall back into the bowl. Lay your strawberries on a piece of parchment paper to dry.
Once the chocolate has completely hardened, you can remove the strawberries from the parchment paper and arrange them however you like. You can even put them in a nice box with a bow on it for a lovely gift.
