Chocolate Covered Strawberries

I made these strawberries the same day I was making truffles. While I posted that recipe over a year ago, the strawberries remained in my picture folder. Until today when I went looking at old pictures of recipe that never made it to the blog and found this one.


These are not your regular chocolate dipped strawberries. Not only are they dipped in dark chocolate, they are then rolled in dark chocolate shavings. Mu daughter loved these and they were gone pretty quickly. Use large strawberries so the double chocolate coating is balanced out with the strawberry flavor. This is a perfect recipe to use you dark cocoa brick.

You will need
10-12 Strawberries
1 oz. dark chocolate cut from a 70-100% dark cocoa brick
2 tbsp. dark chocolate shavings from a 70-100% dark cocoa brick
parchment paper

Rinse and dry the strawberries leaving the stem hat in place. Keep aside until needed. Shred the dark chocolate over a grater to get the chocolate shavings. Keep aside. Melt the dark chocolate in a double boiler.

Dip the strawberries about 3/4 of the way in the melted chocolate and place on the parchment paper. When the melted chocolate starts to dry sprinkle the chocolate shavings over the top. Continue until you have dipped and covered all the strawberries. Leave them on the parchment paper until the chocolate has thickened.


Enjoy!
