I was making these tasty treats Saturday night for Remie’s wedding shower Sunday afternoon!
Here’s a quick How To:
You start with a double boiler type setup. I just use 2 pots, one slightly bigger than the other, and fill the lower pot with boiling water (or rather regular water that you bring to a boil while on the stove). The purpose being to not burn the chocolate at the bottom of the pot.
In the smaller pot you put:
-one bag of semi-sweet chocolate morsels (I don’t use any particular brand)
-a pinch of salt
-and a splash of heavy whipping cream (a actually used soy milk for these because I didn’t have any cream in my house. They came out just as tasty! The only difference I noticed was the chocolate coating didn’t look like as shiny as it usually does. It was a bit milky looking, but it worked perfectly!)
You stir this up on medium-low heat until the mixture is melted and smooth!
This is usually enough chocolate to dip 2 entire cartoons of strawberries (+ some left over, if you want to try dipping other things, like cookies or granola bars ).
*TIP: After washing your strawberries, dry them off with a paper towel! The chocolate sticks much better on a dry strawberry then on a wet one!
DIP! DUNK! POUR! LICK! AND TASTE TEST UNTIL YOUR HEARTS CONTENT!!
And that’s basically it! You can eat them right then, with the warm gooey chocolate covering, or place them on trays in the fridge for at least an hour for the cool hard coating! Both are delish!!
I trayed these up and left them in my fridge over night! When it was about ready to head to the shower I pulled them off of the pans and placed each one in individual cupcake papers for a cute little decorating effect.
I really think everyone enjoyed them! And it seems people were quite impressed when they found out I made them myself. Go me!
So, that’s it!! I suggest testing this out yourself, ASAP!!! Its so much fun! Especially with buddies!
