How many times can a person say "Oh wow" while eating these? Infinite! I splurged on some really gorgeous strawberries and made two batches, one with semisweet chocolate and cherry liquour, and one with white chocolate and the Grand Marnier. My only complaint is that it takes about 60 seconds to polish off the bowl, but it's so easy to make more!
These were incredible, and so easy to make! Everyone loved them. My new "Dessert to impress!" Thanks!
I tried this recipre twice, thinking maybe I did something wrong, or overcooked the chocolate. It turned out too thick to have the berries look nice. Using chocolate that needs to be tempered may have better results.
The taste is 5 stars! The chocolate and butter did not become smooth enough for dipping and adding the cream and liquor did not help. I tried more melted butter but no luck. I was able to push the chocolate onto the strawberries kind of like fudge. I would love to know what I did wrong so I can fix it next time. The taste is exactly what I wanted and the creaminess, not brittle/breakable texture was also my goal but they did not look like yours and definitely not dippable.
Wow, very good!
Judging from other comments, I must have goofed up. The recipe looked delicious but after I melted the chocolate and butter smooth and added the liquids, the mixture got very grainy and clumpy! (Like when water is dropped into melted chocolate and mixed.) I melted in 10 second intervals and it got a little better but after stirring it was a matte color and not the consistency of dipping chocolate. I dipped a berry and it was not eye-appealing at all. I tried a few more but none got better. Once set up, I sampled two but they were not the sexy strawberries I was hoping for. If anyone has any suggestions I'd love to hear them. In the meantime, I have my simple standby of chocolate and Crisco- it's a little more firm but very easy and delicious. As far as this recipe, maybe next time. :o(
Loved these! I haved the recipe and made 14 strawberries. I used skin milk instead of cream and Gheradelli semisweet chocolate. Can't wait to try Dark Chocolate. Thanks for sharing!
YUM this is my new favourite way of making chocolate covered strawberries! Mine seemed to come together well and hardened overnight in the fridge. I split the recipe, making one batch with semisweet chocolate and another with white chocolate (to use as a drizzle once the semisweet chocolate set) I melted my chocolate over a double boiler and used 2% milk instead of cream, gradually adding it till the chocolate was a good dipping consistency. The Grand Marnier gave the chocolate a little more flavour, though I might even add more next time! Thank you!
The chocolate coating was not the harden kind that I like covering strawberries and cherries. It stayed soft.
Very easy to make and even easier to eat. Delicious.
