I've mentioned that we get a lot of strawberries out of our garden all at once. So, I'm looking at doing more and different things that will make them last. Jam, and freezing are those different topics - I've also tried making chocolate covered strawberries!
One person above says they cut off the leafy cap. I leave it on a s a natural handle, of sorts.
The whole thing is much easier than years ago, as I got a little double boiler for Mother's Day.
I started with Hershey bars. then I read about much fancier, better options. The one-step-up, chocolate seemed to be Nestle chocolate chips. I also found the chips did not harden as well and tended to "sweat".
I found the semi sweet left a bitter taste, so I've gone back to good old Hershey bars.
I wanted to add a fancy drizzle of white chocolate to make them look fancier. My plan was to simply melt a small amount of white chocolate chips. I had no luck at all with this. They turned brown in the microwave, did nothing inside the squirt bottle in pot of boiling water or in pyrex custard dish.
Check out the little video clip. (Nothing too exciting but i want to see if it's possible to post such clips here for future topics.
Since then a freind has recommended Ghiridelli white chocolate or some proper candy supplies from AC Moore Crafts at the mall.
