Chocolate dipped strawberriesPosted: March 13, 2011
Totally decadent dessert – it could even be classified as a capital sin.
Chocolate dipped strawberries
- Perfectly ripened strawberries, green caps intact (normally, the huge ones from Spain are the best for this).
- 100 g chocolate (I used Cailler Cremant Intense 64% – with silvery label)
- 1 spoon of butter
- cream (I used soy cream)
Melt the chocolate you want to be a purist, the chocolate should be melted in bain marie. I put it on the microwate for 4min, at defrost. When half of it is melted, take it out and mix.The remaining bits will melt on its own. Do not let boil!). Add the butter and cream until you have the desired consistency. Dip the strawberries in the melted chocolate. Apparently, if you give it a little shake to the strawberry when you pull it out, u withdraw it, the little cracks will be filed and you will have a nice, even line of chocolate at the base (I found no noticeable difference). To drip the chocolate off, give it a quick, clockwise motion to spin it.
