Today we are all about chocolate covered fruit! Its Friday, the start of the weekend and to celebrate chocolate week we thought we would add a bit of luxury to your life in the form of chocolate dipped strawberries. Perfect for a romantic evening in or just an extra special treat for you! They’re seriously moorish so make sure you dip the whole punnet (or two!). If you don’t, you’ll soon be wishing you did!!
It’s all about the ingredients. Make sure you buy ripe, large juicy strawberries that are free from bruises and blemishes, preferably ones that are plump and symmetrical and sporting their green hats. It is easier to work with strawberries that have their green tops on, plus, they look even more impressive with a splash of greenery on the top. If you buy perfect looking strawberries they’ll look amazing with their chocolate coats on, especially important if you’re trying to impress anyone! Chocolate covered strawberries are wonderful to make as a thoughtful gift for someone special and look even more tempting when decorated. You could even try using cherries for a little variety.
So….You’ve picked your perfectly plump strawberries, now you need to select your chocolate of choice. Milk, white, dark or all three perhaps?! Whatever your preference make sure you chose a high quality chocolate, it makes a huge difference to the taste.
If you love a combination of strawberries and chocolate then you’ll certainly love our No Bake Chocolate Strawberry Cheesecake! It’s easy and so delicious and most definitely worth a try.
Happy strawberry dipping everyone!
