Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and I’m one who’s all about concocting a good romantic evening with some sexy sweet treats. I was on the hunt to find an easy way to make chocolate covered strawberries and came across this great video tutorial.
Now I wish my friend in the video had been a little more generous with the chocolate, (the darker the berry, the sweeter the juice – Not sure if that applies here, but I like that saying.) but the video gives some great tips and highlights a couple of points on how to get your chocolate to the perfect consistency for dipping.
[For those of you who’d love some strawberries dipped in chocolate sans all of the mess, (*cough, cough – guys) head over to my friends at Berries.com. Their berries are fresh and delicious, and they’ve got tons of (pre-dipped) chocolate strawberry selections so you can easily set the scene for romance.]
- If you’d like to take it a step further, make a chocolate covered strawberry bouquet. After dipping place strawberries on wooden skewers and place them in a nice glass. This keeps the chocolate from getting that funky flat side, and the strawberries are way easier… and sexier to eat. 😉
- Be sure your strawberries are completely dry before dipping or the chocolate will “seize up” becoming clumpy, thick, and unusable.
