Chocolate covered Strawberries

Chocolate covered strawberries is the simplest version of dessert with chocolate and perfect for any occasion!

It’s a wonderful union of fresh juicy strawberries with melted chocolate. Also I have to say.. you will always have time to make them however last-minute it is, it’s that simple, easy and elegant dessert.

 

Recipe from Laura in the kitchen, one of my favorite YouTube channel!

Very few ingredients you will need:

1/2 cup or oz of chocolate (dark, semi sweet or milk)

15 strawberries

1 tbsp butter/ vegetable shortening or flavor-less oil

 

From plain strawberries to chocolate covered:

Line a baking sheet or plate with parchment/wax paper or foil and set aside.

Fill a saucepan till 1/3 with water and bring to a simmer. Place a heat proof bowl that exactly fits over the pan with the simmering water. Make sure the bottom of the bowl is not touching the simmering water. This procedure is known as double-boiler method, the same method was used for melting chocolate and butter in Molten Lava Cake recipe.

Add the chocolate chips and the oil/butter/shortening and let that melt slowly as you stir with a spoon or heat proof spatula.

 

Meanwhile wash the strawberries and pat dry with paper towels.

Remove the bowl with the melted chocolate from the pan and start dipping in your strawberries. Dip the strawberry in the chocolate, carefully rotate once and shake off any excess. Instead of covering them with chocolate throughout, dip till 3/4 of the strawberry. The red color of the strawberry with chocolate looks very pretty. Place them on the plate/sheet.

You can also insert a skewer or toothpick halfway through the berry and dip in chocolate if you are apprehensive to hold the leaf part of the berry.

Allow them to set for 5 minutes at room temperature and then refrigerate them  for 15 minutes to set completely.

All set to serve!

I dipped a few strawberries in melted white chocolate, the same procedure like mentioned above.

For the stripes: It’s easy to use a zip-lock bag, why use a piping bag for a few tsp of melted chocolate?

Pour melted chocolate in zip-lock bag, cut open in the corner and randomly drizzle.

Happy cooking
