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!)
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.
