How to make chocolate strawberry

Strawberries and chocolate have always been a winning combination and making these easy, gourmet-looking chocolate-covered strawberries are absolutely perfect for every occasions. Learn how to make chocolate strawberry in this easy tutorial.

What You’ll Need:
Dark Chocolate (Chopped or Chocolate Chips)
Strawberries
White Chocolate (Optional)

Instructions:
1. Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with aluminum foil.

2. Choose strawberries that are around the same height as each other and wash them. Dry them thoroughly afterwards.

3. Place the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave until it is melted.

4. Holding a strawberry by the stem, dip it in the melted chocolate, twirling it in a circular motion to evenly cover most of the berry. As you lift it from the chocolate, let the excess chocolate drip off.

5. Carefully lay the dipped strawberry on its side on the baking sheet and repeat with remaining berries and chocolate.

6. Once all of the berries are dipped and lined in the baking sheet, refrigerate them for 30 minutes to set the chocolate.

7. You can drizzle some melted white chocolate to decorate your strawberries (optional).

Welcome to How To Cook That I’m Ann Reardon and today we are making a block of fresh strawberry
chocolate.
I showed you a while ago how to make these chocolate strawberry roses and I just love
chocolate and strawberries together.
For this recipe you will need chocolate and strawberries. Try and choose strawberries
that are around the same height as each other so they look good as a block.
Take each strawberry and cut off the hull, the green bit there. So that it will stand
upright.
Then we need to temper our chocolate. Now if you don’t temper chocolate it won’t set
firmly at room temperature. And I have a whole video on chocolate secrets that explains what
tempering is and how to do it in all different ways.
Dip the top of each strawberry into the chocolate and then place on some foil to set.
Now when you are dipping push it in nearly up to the base and then let the excess chocolate
run off, and you can give a little shake to speed it up.
Then leave those at room temperature to set.
I let you know a couple of weeks ago that my husband Dave is working hard writing a
novel and I asked you what country one of the main characters should be from? And after
tallying up thousands of votes from you guys the third character is from … America. It
was very close and there were so many other suggestions so he’s going to weave some of
those other nationalities in other characters in the book.
This week’s question is: in the third chapter that he’s working on now there’s a knife-wielding
bad guy and every bad guy needs a good name … so I want you to put in the comments below
what you think his name should be and the person whose name is picked will get a mention
in the back of the book.
Now we want to line a container with foil. Fold over two of the edges and then place
it in the container so you can see where to fold the opposite edge. Then fold the last
edge down. Open that up a bit and flatten the extra bit in each corner so that we’ve
got a container all neatly lined.
Pour in your chocolate. And this can be as thick or as thin as you.This is the base of
your block of chocolate, it just depends how generous you want to be on the chocolate there.
Tap the container to get it flat and then we are going to leave that to set.
Once they’re both set, re-temper your left-over chocolate.
Dry the base of the strawberry and dip it into the chocolate. Shake off the excess and
then place that onto the base.
So once you’ve finished doing all your chocolate strawberries, just make sure they’re straight,
just line them up before that chocolate sets and then put the rest of the chocolate into
a piping bag and pipe some into the gap in between the strawberries.
Then tap it on the bench again to level it out.
If you want to you can give the strawberries a second coat of chocolate so it just makes
it a little bit thicker. Just pipe it on in circles around and around the strawberry.
And then tap it to smooth it out.
Once it is set pull the whole thing out of the container and peel off the foil.
And there you have a block of strawberry chocolate.
Just cut or break pieces off and eat them. This would be really nice on a cheese platter
to keep people like me happy who like sweet things.
