What a taste treat these little beauties are! You can use canned lychees but you must drain & dry them very well I like the texture of fresh best. I also stuff as much ginger into each lychee as I can.
- 20 fresh lychees, peeled & pit removed
- 20 pieces candied ginger
- 6 ounces dark chocolate
- 1⁄2 ounce shortening
- Carefully stuff each lychee with ginger.
- Put the chocolate& shortening in the top of a double boiler, stir over simmering water until the chocolate has melted, allow to cool slightly Dip stuffed lychees into the chocolate carefully remove with a fork& tap lightly to remove surplus chocolate Place lychees on an oven tray lined with wax paper, place in fridge to set.
- Drizzle any left over chocolate over the chocolated to make a little pattern Keep refrigerated until you are going to serve them.
Absolutely delicious and very moreish. Not really a recipe but a star-worthy brilliant idea. Not too wicked, either. I have to be dragged away from these..Thank you, Bergy.
