Creating On the Go: Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Looking to make your Valentines Day (or even Galentine’s Day) special? Chocolate  covered strawberries are easy to make and are absolutely delicious.

Creating On the Go: Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Supplies:

Strawberries- Bigger strawberries tend to work better

Chocolate- any kind; milk, dark, or white (I used Ghirardelli dark chocolate melting wafers and white chocolate)

Cookie sheet

Parchment paper

Spoon

Chocolate warmer- or anything you can use to melt the chocolate in.

Instructions:

1. Place parchment paper on your cookie sheet.

2. Wash strawberries and dry them with a food safe paper towel. Line them up on your cookie sheet. Don’t skip the drying process because your chocolate will slide right off your strawberry if it is still wet and you will also mess with the consistency of the chocolate.

3. Melt your chocolate per the instructions on the package. Since I have a chocolate warmer I used the ceramic dish to microwave the chocolate first and then set it back into the warmer to keep the consistency.

4. Grab a strawberry by the leaves and dip it fully into the chocolate, shaking off any excess chocolate to avoid a puddle of chocolate on the cookie sheet.

Then lay it on the sheet to dry. Continue till all strawberries are covered.

5. Time to drizzle! You can drizzle your strawberries in whatever chocolate you want. I decided to do half in the dark chocolate and the other half in white chocolate. Take your spoon and grab some chocolate with it.

The trick to this, I have found, is to keep the spoon straight up, no angles, as you drizzle the chocolate over the strawberry.

Return to cookie sheet to dry.

You can also sprinkle red or pink sugar over the drizzle for some added color. This works best with the white chocolate.

6. Refrigerate till you’re ready to enjoy!

Helpful hint: Do these the day of or the night before so they are as fresh as possible.

Not too long ago I had the privilege of tasting and decorating some doughnuts at Krispy Kreme at Millenia. Guys, let me just tell you how awesome it was!

Krispy Kreme Ghostbusters Halloween Doughnuts

First of all, Ghostbusters is one of my favorite movies and I was excited when news broke that Krispy Kreme had made and designed doughnuts for the film’s 30th anniversary. They’re super cute, taste amazingly good, and Krispy Kreme let me decorate my own!
