I made these for a bridal shower the other week… they were a huge hit. They are super simple to make, so let me share what to do (and what not to do).
What you need: strawberries and chocolate. Ignore the heavy cream, more on that later. If you would like to drizzle it with white chocolate, pick up some of that also. I picked up a few bars of Ghiradelli semi-sweet baking chocolate. Normally I am a milk chocolate kinda girl, even in chocolate chip cookies, but I didn’t want them to be too sweet.
To begin, melt the chocolate in a glass bowl double boiler on the stove.
So I was researching tips on making chocolate covered strawberries and I read somewhere to add heavy cream to the chocolate as it would give it a nice sheen.
Fail. It turned into a complete brick, and no amount of heat would get it to liquefy again.
Round 2. I ran back across the street to Safeway (having a grocery store directly across the street from my house is beyond convenient) and started them again, sans heavy cream.
It’s fairly self-explanatory, I grabbed them by the stems and dipped them in the chocolate.
I had some extra Wilton white melting candies (the kind you put in molds) so I just melted it and drizzled it over the puppies.
