Dark chocolate AND strawberries equals DELICIOUS!!!<br/>Very easy, but do watch your chocolate temperature, it really does make a difference!<br/>Made these to go alongside some chocolate brownies for guests, and both adults and children raved about them.<br/>A winner all round.<br/>Made for PRMR.
Thank you so much for printing this--I didn't know how much chocolate to strawberries (I bought bar chocolate, not chips.), so this was very helpful. They were delicious! Using this measure of chocolate, I was able to do a quart of strawberries. I used dark chocolate.
No stars yet simply due to my error. I didn't realize chocolate was so adverse to water, so I didn't fully dry the strawberries once I'd washed them. This caused the chocolate to harden and basically became unusable pretty quickly. The strawberries I was able to coat tasted delicious, even though they didn't look as they should. Will definitely try this again to get the technique down. Edited to add: A second attempt yesterday yielded better, though still not satisfactory results. I believe I'm heating the chocolate too high (I dried the berries off thoroughly beforehand this time) so will address that issue with the next batch. That said, my tasters really loved the flavor combination.
Classic and so easy! I love this recipe for a quick and sexy spin on strawberries. Thanks, ellie! Made for Veggie Recipe Swap.
I just the toothpick into foam method - great idea to get very beautiful chocolate covered strawberries withou one side 'smashed' in. And of course delicious, too. I will be making these again for sure. Made for PRMR.
My beloved DH gave me a *rose garden* made up of a half dozen chocolate strawberries for mother's day today. He's such a sweetie, and won my heart with this recipe. Thanks for posting. :)
DELICIOUS! And so very EASY to make and most of all, NO MESS! I popped it in the fridge for the chocolate to harden since I had guests coming and had to make this at the very last minute. Thanks, ellie, for sharing! Definitely a keeper.
This is SUCH a great and simple recipe, and really hits the spot at this time of the year, when local berries are easily found in the markets! I've made these for many years, but NEVER thought of using toothpicks jabbed into styrofoam so they look for "perfect"! Great idea!!!! KEEPER!
