COOKING VIDEO: Easy Chocolate Covered Strawberries Recipe
Who wouldn’t enjoy chocolate-covered strawberries for Mother’s Day?
They’re easy to make and delight just about everyone, as a light dessert or as gifts for the moms.
You can use your favorite chocolate (dark, milk, white or all three). You can leave the chocolate-covered berries plain or decorate them with your favorite toppings: chopped nuts, crushed toffee, granola, mini-morsels, shredded coconut or sprinkles.
For the most elegant touch, decorate with gold or silver dragées or some opalescent sanding sugar.
TIP #1: QUALITY CHOCOLATE COUNTS. Your chocolate-covered strawberries will taste better, the better the chocolate you use. We buy fine quality chocolate bars, which are very well priced at Trader Joe’s.
TIP #2: SO DO DRY STRAWBERRIES. The chocolate won’t adhere well if the berries are moist from a thorough washing. Instead of washing the strawberries under running water, pat them with a damp towel to clean; then pat them dry and let them air dry (you can also use a hairdryer on the cold setting).
Mmm…we can’t wait until Mother’s Day.
