Chocolate Dipped Strawberries

The moment I saw this in Irene's place Confession of a Tart, and I love that name and if you go there you will see why she gave her wonderful delicous blog that name.

Irene made it for one of hergood friends b'day. Now don't you all wish you all had a friend like Irene who would make this and pack themù in a box beautifully and give them.
Ofcourse if you go over to her place, you will see a much more nicer picture as I don' thave a steady hand for pipping the white chocolate.

I wanted to surprise my daughter with these chocolate strawberries, as while looking to Iren's blog, I had shown her and for one thing my daughter is like me, that is we both love chocolate.
And she was so happy when she saw these chocolate strawvberries .
Now she goes on asking me when am I going to make them again.

Original recipe Confession of a Tart

24 ripe strawberries
8 oz bittersweet chocolate, chopped (she used Lindt, i used callebaut)
1 oz white chocolate,
choppedRinse strawberries and gently pat dry.
Set on a rack to dry completely. Melt bittersweet chocolate in a double boiler.Dip strawberries in chocolate and shake off excess.
Set to dry on a rack (on the tops as shown in the photos) or on parchment (on the bottoms which will give you a foot of chocolate) in a cool, dry location
[Irene's note: I let mine dry in the kitchen for a half hour and then got impatient and put them in the refrigerator].
That is exactly i did too.
When chocolate has dried, melt the white chocolate and drizzle over the strawberries
This is for my event and waiting to get all you delicous strawberry creations.

How To Eat A Cupcake said...

Have you ever tried adding chili powder to the dipping chocolate? My boyfriend and I recently watched the movie "Chocolat," and the woman in the movie puts chili powder in a lot of her chocolates to give them an extra kick! :D

Peter M said...

Oh my, you always have a way with desserts and sweet treats. Champagne, strawberries please.

Ivy said...

These look beautiful. It takes a lot of patience to add the white chocolate as well. Great job.

Happy cook said...
