Strawberry au chocolat

| April 6, 2006 | 2 Comments

I love strawberries. Always have. As a child, I would dip them in confectioners sugar and savor every sweet and scrumptious bite. As an adult though, I have a bit more of a sophisticated take on how I love my berries – smothered in fine chocolate. Mmmm….

So I got creative the other afternoon, and decided to take some of my spare chocolate and create some lovely fruits for dessert. I had these strawberries in my fridge, and they really needed to be used before they were unusable.

There really is no recipe for this – it’s just too simple for that. First I melted milk chocolate (3.5 ounces of it). Then I dipped the clean strawberries and swirled them so that the chocolate was pretty even all the way around. Then I carefully placed them on a sheet of parchment paper.

Next I melted about 1 ounce of white chocolate. Using a spoon, I drizzled it over the milk chocolate for a nice artistic effect.

Then I just let them set for 1-2 hours, and transferred them to this lovely serving dish.

Oh and were they ever good. My husband stole a few before I could even photograph them. He was wowed.

I won’t tell you about standing in the kitchen feeding them to each other. That’s a little too corny for me to describe . . . but it did happen.

    I want to reach into the computer and grap a couple from you….but they are already gone. I know they are! If they were in my possession they would be gone!

    Surprisingly, we finished all but two, but if my calories are on the low end today I might just have to change that. LOL.
