Decadently Sinful Chocolate Covered Strawberries
Posted on June 25, 2012
- 6 ounces chocolate, chopped
- 3 ounces white chocolate, chopped
- 1 pound strawberries with stems (about 20), washed and dried very well
Put the semisweet and white chocolate into 2 separate medium bowls. Fill 2 medium saucepans with a couple inches of water and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Turn off the heat; set the bowls of chocolate over the water to melt.
Stir until smooth.
Once the chocolates are melted and smooth, remove from the heat. Line a sheet pan with parchment or waxed paper. Holding the strawberry by the stem, dip the fruit into the dark chocolate, lift and twist slightly, letting any excess chocolate fall back into the bowl.
Set strawberries on the parchment paper. Repeat with the rest of the strawberries.
For the white chocolate I made a parchment paper piping bag. You can follow the instructions on how to make one with this Chow.com video. As a side note, I love Chow.com, they have great how-to videos!
Fill the pipette with the white chocolate and drizzle over strawberries.
Set the strawberries aside until the chocolate sets, about 30 minutes. Serve with champagne and enjoy!
