Ingredients

To make these simple and delicious chocolate covered strawberries, you will need:

  • 150g chocolate
  • 250g large strawberries, washed, dried

Method

Line a baking tray with baking paper.

Roughly chop the chocolate and place in a heatproof bowl that fits snuggly in a saucepan (this stops water spraying into the chocolate). Half-fill the saucepan with water and bring to a simmer. Place the bowl on top, making sure it doesn’t touch the water (or it will overheat). Stir chocolate with a metal spoon until melted. Remove from the heat.

Working quickly, dip the strawberries into chocolate, hold above the bowl to allow the excess chocolate to drizzle from the strawberry. Place onto lined tray. If the chocolate starts to set in the bowl, place back over simmering water to melt again.

Once all strawberries are coated leave aside to set and then enjoy!

Try these variations:

Vanilla and White Chocolate Strawberries (top left)
Replace milk chocolate with white chocolate and add the seeds from one Vanilla Bean to the melted chocolate.

Choc on Choc Strawberries (top centre)
You can use either milk or dark chocolate to dip the strawberries. Roughly chop an additional 200g of milk or dark chocolate and place into a bowl. As you dip the strawberries coat the chocolate in the chocolate pieces before placing onto the lined tray.

Pretty in Pink Strawberries (top right)
Replace milk chocolate with white chocolate. You will need some sugar sprinkles (we’ve used pink, try Christmas colours, Orange for Halloween, etc.). As you dip the strawberries coat the chocolate in the sprinkles before placing onto the lined tray.

White Choc Drizzle Strawberries (middle left)
You can use either milk or dark chocolate to dip the strawberries. Once the chocolate has set – melt an additional 100g of white chocolate and use the metal spoon to drizzle the white chocolate lightly over the coated strawberries.

Coconut and White Chocolate Strawberries (middle centre)
Replace milk chocolate with white chocolate. You will also need 100g of shredded or desiccated coconut. As you dip the strawberries coat the chocolate in the coconut before placing onto the lined tray.

Chocolate Sprinkled Strawberries (middle right)
You can use either milk or dark chocolate to dip the strawberries. You will need some chocolate sugar sprinkles. As you dip the strawberries coat the chocolate in the sprinkles before placing onto the lined tray.

Nutty Strawberries (bottom left)
You will need an additional 150g of chopped nuts. As you dip the strawberries coat the chocolate in the nuts before placing onto the lined tray. We’ve used peanuts and milk chocolate, try chopped pistachios and dark chocolate or flaked almonds and white chocolate.

Colourful Strawberries (bottom centre)
You will need an additional 150g of colourful lollies (like Mini M&Ms, roughly chopped Smarties, etc.). As you dip the strawberries coat the chocolate in the lollies before placing onto the lined tray.

Milk Choc Drizzle Strawberries (bottom right)
Replace milk chocolate with white chocolate to dip the strawberries. Once the chocolate has set on the dipped strawberries – melt an additional 100g of milk chocolate and use the metal spoon to drizzle the milk chocolate lightly over the coated strawberries. You can of course try this with dark chocolate drizzles.

  6. This price tag needs to contain the air travel, the price tag of lodging, the food, the services that should contain the exchanges, the amenities at the destination, every one of the
    taxes and also charges and, last however certainly not minimum,
    the alcoholic drinks. My Some says have family finding professionals yet others have
    Diligent Bing search Units which perform this due diligence to uncover our family.

  7. Internet tv is totally the wave of the future. As broadband speeds get faster, everyone will be watching their shows on sites like this.
