Make a Chocolate Dipped Strawberry
Ahhh, a chocolate dipped strawberry - a beautiful luscious treat that any chocolate or berry lover can enjoy! You see them in fancy chocolate shops and drool. All dressed up in almonds, chocolate chips or coconut, or decorated like a tuxedo, in plain chocolate, white chocolate, flavored chocolate; ANYTHING you can think of! People pay lots of money for these; they are an incredible gift for someone who you know has everything! They also make a great 'show' at a potluck. Shari's Berries charges $65 for 9 chocolate dipped strawberries in a box! They get away with it too; their sales are rapidly growing and people buy them left and right!
With Father'wedding-favor-ideas.html">weddings coming, wouldn't it be great to know how to make those yourself, doing it just as beautifully as the fancy stores do?
They are as easy as pie. Well, as easy as
strawberries! You must start out with the right chocolate. Shari's Berries
uses the same chocolate we do,
How-to: Melt your favorite flavor of MOLDING chocolate in 30-second intervals to prevent scorching the chocolate. Grab a fresh strawberry by its stem. (Only buy good quality strawberries for these. It WILL make a huge difference!) Dip the strawberry into the chocolate rotating from side to side to make a V-shape of chocolate around the strawberry. Lay on waxed paper. Immediately move to the refrigerator to get the shiny chocolaty look. Drizzle with a different color chocolate using the painter bottle. You can use white chocolate, or add some color by adding the candy food coloring. It looks extra special with pink! Be careful not to use regular food coloring with chocolate. The water in the coloring you buy at the grocery store will ruin the chocolate.
