Guest Blogger: Siggy’s Chocolate-Covered Strawberries

I imagine you’ve all been salivating over the beautiful berries at the market lately. Siggy has a simple method to create the classic chocolate-covered summer decadence. What, really, is better than ripe, fresh strawberries bathed in dark chocolate? The chocolate firms just enough to create a contrasting texture to the tender berries so that each bite is a creamy balance of sweet and bittersweet. It’s so simple, but one of my favorite things that Siggy makes. (Hint, hint: Siggy, make these soon!)

Chocolate-Covered Strawberries

Wash strawberries and dry them

Put good baking chocolate in a heat resistant bowl on top of a pot of boiling water (if you don’t own a double boiler).

Stir chocolate with wooden spoon as it melts.

Once melted, turn off heat and dip/twirl strawberries in chocolate to cover them as desired.

Lay out on parchment paper.

Wait at least half an hour to an hour for chocolate to set.

    Looks yummy – but I would probably make the effort to buy some imported quality chocolate with a cocao content of at least 80% and then add a drizzle of full cream before dipping but then I’m partial to dark dark chocolate and strawberries ;0)
