Great when it's strawberry season!!
- Insert toothpicks into the tops of the strawberries.
- In a double boiler, melt the chocolate and shortening, stirring occasionally until smooth.
- Holding them by the toothpicks, dip the strawberries into the chocolate mixture.
- Turn the strawberries upside down and insert the toothpick into styrofoam for the chocolate to cool.
I had leftover chocolate chips from another Strawberry recipe listed here. They were more adult friendly with coffee liqueur in them. I decided to try this recipe so they had some strawberries to try. Instead of the adding the fat, I added 2 Tablespoon of strong brewed coffee like the other recipe I tried called for plus my children love the flavor of coffee. I liked the idea of using toothpicks to help hold the strawberries while you dipped them in the chocolate. I used a double boiler to melt the chocolate and then added the brewed coffee. I couldnit put the chocolate covered strawberries into the styrofoam without touching the tips. Instead, I placed them on wax paper to dry.
Excellant! It also worked well with bananas. I cut the bananas into 1 inch pieces and froze them for 1/2 hour before dipping. Proceed as above. Yummy!
These are yummy! I used butter in place of the shortening. Too easy to eat too many!
