With Valentine's Day right around the corner, one of the favorites (at least for me) is Chocolate Covered Strawberries. But this year I don't want to do any boring old chocolate-covered strawberries. So this year I'm doing Pink and White Chocolate Dipped Strawberries. How cute are these? Great for kids too! What a simple way to get them to eat their fruit!
Pink and White Chocolate Covered Strawberries
These colors can be changed up to match any theme or holiday and are great for weddings! Deck the out in your wedding colors!
1 pound of fresh, ripe but not too ripe strawberries
12 total ounces of quality white chocolate
*Reserve 6 ounces of the white chocolate to dye pink for the second half of the tip with a dash of powdered pink food coloring
Thoroughly wash and dry your strawberries. To be certain they were dry I used a paper towel on each berry, including the green tops before dipping. You will want them to be at room temperature before dipping.
You will want to do one chocolate at a time and let it set up before adding the next. We started with milk chocolate. Melt your first chocolate according to the package instructions. Have a tray lined with wax paper ready to go along with your chocolate in a bowl that can easily be dipped into before starting.
Dip the strawberry into your white chocolate then place it on the tray to let set. The chocolate will harden rather quickly; by the time you are done with all of the berries the original dipped berries should be set.
Again, follow instructions on the package to melt the second half of the white chocolate. Add just a dash of the powdered pink food coloring and mix thoroughly. Carefully pick up one strawberry at a time, holding from the undipped top, and dip into the pink chocolate at the same vertical side (see photos for reference). Place back on the wax paper-lined tray, the same side down as before. Let set up full then cover or transfer to an air-tight container and store in the refrigerator. Best when enjoyed the same day.
