Valentine’s Day Sweets – Chocolate covered Strawberries

The ultimate Valentine’s day sweets are chocolate covered strawberries. The ingredients are few and the equipment required is little  but the romance quotient is very high.

Ingredients

1 pack  ripe strawberries

100 gm milk chocolate

50 gm while chocolate

Chocolate covered Strawberries

Melt the milk chocolate in the microwave by heating for 20 sec and stirring and repeating 2-3 times.

Dip the strawberries in the chocolate and lay down on a plate or parchment paper.

Refrigerate till set, around 30-45 mins.

Melt white chocolate in the microwave as for milk chocolate.

Dip a fork or spoon in the white chocolate and swirl it on the strawberries. Freeze again till set.

Tip: Chocolate nibs or bars can be used. If using bars, break it into small pieces before melting. Chocolate can also be melted in bain marie. If using microwave, be careful not to burn it. Even the most careful of chefs are susceptible. You can also decorate the strawberries with crushed roasted peanuts or coarsely ground pistachio nuts or leave them as is.
