I think I am not the only person who can say this with conviction, that strawberry and chocolate is a fabulous combination. Or as I like to call it - they are a match made in heaven. It's delightful to work with two of these ingredients.
As you all might be searching for new recipes on Pinterest, so was I. I need some quick Easter dessert recipe. And, these bright orange carrot chocolate strawberries flashed in front of me. It was like an instant attraction. When I saw the beautifully laid out on a white plate, I was like I have to do this.
I just love white chocolate. Well, not more than dark chocolate (obviously). Hence I had two bricks of white chocolate in my freezer. I thought, if I melt them in the microwave oven and pour just one drop of orange food color, I could easily wrap my washed out and dried strawberries in them.
And, fortunately, it worked like magic. In just a matter of 10-15 minutes, I was done with my recipe. Isn't this something that even you want to try? I bet you do.
Finally, you can place them on chocolate muffins or crushed Oreos and it would look like a carrot patch. Or else, you can serve them as it is - just like I'm going to.
How Did I Make My Chocolate Covered Strawberry Carrots
To make my Chocolate Covered Strawberry carrots the first thing I did was wash my strawberries and dried them out.
The next thing I did was melt my white chocolate. I melted around 250g or 8oz of white chocolate for 20 medium-sized strawberries.
Once my white chocolate was soft and ready to work with, I whipped it with a spoon to get a smooth consistency. I kept stirring until I got a smooth white chocolate mixture in my bowl. It was easy and fun.
The next step is to add a drop of orange food color. (I was really scared about this) I was worrying endlessly that if it produces a red color, or if it hardens my white chocolate and etc. But fortunately, as I stirred on the color blew away all my worries. It was bright orange - just what I had seen on Pinterest. (I got so happy looking at the color).
The Final Step is to simply dip and wrap your strawberries in the mixture and placing them on a baking tray. I allowed them to freeze overnight so that the chocolate sticks with the strawberries.
When I woke up the next day to see them, It was the best present that I had presented myself. It made my day. It was just the way I had wanted. I tried one of those small babies and the beautiful fusion of strawberry along with chocolate took my breath away.
