Chocolate Coated Strawberries
Two posts on the trot with strawberries… don’t worry, I’m still working with other ingredients, I promise! February always does this to me… I just want to eat as many strawberries as I possibly can before the season ends. As I write this, I have a boxful of strawberries in my fridge, not waiting t
  • 250gms strawberries, about 15 of varying sizes
  • 100 45gms dark chocolate% , chopped up
  • 2tablespoons butter
  • Handful almondsof (optional)
  1. Wash and dry the strawberries. Set them aside. Line a tray with parchment paper and set it aside.
  2. Place the chopped up chocolate and butter in a heat resistant bowl. In a saucepan, add about 1 inch of water and bring it to a simmer. Place the bowl with chocolate and butter over the simmering water (at no point should the bottom of the bowl touch the water, or else it will burn), and melt the two. Stir every now and then to combine. Once melted, let it cool slightly.
  3. Dip the strawberries in the chocolate and place them on the parchment paper-lined baking tray. Place the tray in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes so that the chocolate can harden & set. If you have some melted chocolate left, you can dip some almonds in them & let them set the same way as the strawberries.
