Chocolate Covered Strawberries


I made these guys on a whim. I had a bowl of strawberries and no other plans for them - other than to munch on them during the day! - and I had a bowl of leftover melted chocolate, as one does(!) I also had my camera sat there so obviously this was going to happen......


What is not to love about this combination?

Wonderful ripe, tasty strawberries and a really good dark chocolate are made to go with each other - just melt a bowl of chocolate (the best you can get - i.e. a high coco solid) and dip the strawberries in. Leave to dry and then your ready to bite into the wonderful shell of the chocolate followed by the soft juicy strawberry within.........


And of course a bowl of thick double cream is perfect to dip them in......



You could make these for a little treat to go with coffee at the end of a meal instead of the usual chocolate mints!




You could also pile a whole heap of them on top of a cake or gateau for a simple but very effective decoration...



I did get a bit carried away with the picture......

Have a great weekend
