Attention! This is the first food-related post on my blog. You might think I’m weird but I’m not really a kitchen person. What I mean by that is that I love eating and appreciate good food, but when it comes to cooking…well not so much. I tend to use my oven more often for creating decorations or oven-required DIY projects (like for example here) rather than to make some food. And this is the reason for dating an Italian guy (ehrm, one of many of course, if you happen to be my boyfriend reading this!) However there are times when I get crazy for making something and believe it or not, at that point, kitchen becomes my paradise. My ideas are very simple, so if your skill levels are similar to mine or above (which is not hard) you will definitely follow!
Recently, when I was in London, in one of the little shops located in the Covent Garden market I spotted chocolate dipped strawberries, topped with nuts and some other tasty bits. Sounds yummy? They looked even better, but the price (10 pounds for 5 strawberries) in my opinion was slightly too high, which is why I decided not to get them. I walked away, dreaming of chocolate dipped strawberries ever since until yesterday when I finally had a little bit of time to satisfy my chocolate strawberries craving.
One thing – I imagined the white chocolate to look more white, but for some reason, it turned kind of transparent.
So here is what you will need to make white chocolate covered strawberries with nuts:
-White chocolate bar (1 for about 10 strawberries)
– A little bit of milk
1. Rinse the strawberries and make them dry.
2. Melt your chocolate. Place a little bit of milk in a pot, over low heat, wait for it to warm up a little bit, and add small pieces of chocolate bar. Stir continuously until your chocolate is completely melted.
3. Remove the pot from the heat and dip your strawberries, first in the melted chocolate, then in the nuts.
4. You might want to use cupcake liners to place your strawberries in, but this is optional, they might as well be placed on a plate.
5. Once they are ready, place them in the fridge for about 30 minutes till the chocolate sets.
So yes, I have a slight chocolate strawberries obsession. They were calling my name. I couldn’t help it. I just love, the way they look and taste…or taste and look. Anyway, if you’ve never tried them, please do and I’m sure you won’t regret!
