Chocolate Dipped Strawberries Recipe For A Lazy Sunday
Posted on August 30 2022
We all love lounging around with a bowl of chocolate dipped strawberries on a lazy Sunday. What’s even better is you can make the chocolate dip yourself, adding in anything you want to. Thankfully, it’s pretty simple to achieve and you can add a twist to the recipe by choosing to include your own herbal infused oil.
Real on for a step-by-step guide on how you can make your own chocolate dipped strawberries, as well as how to add a little twist to the traditional recipe!
Ingredients to Prepare
Before getting started, make sure you have the following ingredients ready:
- One dark chocolate bar, roughly chopped
- Half a bar of chopped milk and white chocolate each (optional)
- Anything else you wish to add such as fruits, nuts, or your own herbal infused oil prepared with a botanical infuser
Making the Chocolate Dip
Now that you have all the ingredients ready, it’s time to start making the chocolate dip. You can either choose to do this in the microwave or by simmering over a small pan of water. If you are using a microwave, melt the dark chocolate in intervals of 20 seconds, taking it out to stir the mixture between each interval.
If you prefer to boil your chocolate on the stove, simply place your chopped up chocolate into a heatproof bowl. Then, fill a small pan with an inch of water, placing the bowl of chocolate above it. Make sure that the bowl does not touch the water directly — you can do this with the help of a metal rack to suspend the bowl. As before, stir constantly to make sure the chocolate has melted.
Preparing the Strawberries
Once your chocolate dip is ready, it’s time to prepare the strawberries. Holding the strawberries by their leafy stems, dip each one into the chocolate, making sure that any excess drips off. Set them carefully on a parchment sheet. If you find that you have any excess chocolate dip, you can set it aside to use again.
If you would like a more elegant presentation, you can choose to melt the white and milk chocolate you have prepared earlier as well. From there, drizzle over the strawberries — it’s sure to make an Instagram worthy post!
Adding a Herbal Infused Twist
Wish to take things one step further and add a herbal infused twist to your chocolate dipped strawberries? You will be glad to know that it’s easy to do so. After you have melted your chocolate according to the steps above, simply stir in your herbal infused oil and make sure that everything is well mixed. From there, the rest of the process will remain the same.
And there you have it: a bowl of chocolate dipped strawberries to enjoy on a lazy Sunday! If you have made more than you finish at one goal, you can always store them in airtight containers to continue enjoying the next day or week.
