Desserts have quite an appeal on women. They are very typical of aphrodisiacs. Give some chocolate to the woman you love and she’ll never forget how sweet you are. Any chocolates will do the trick. However, there are some desserts that when combined with fruit, would rattle your world in a totally different way. I’ve got three words for you: chocolate covered strawberries.
Now tell what you think about when you hear those words. Personally, I would think of how to add some nuts into the chocolate dip. I would imagine biting into that strawberry and hear the crunch of the crushed walnuts in my mouth. For some people, this recipe would bring out their sexy side. I won’t blame you if you offer this up as a gift when you run into problems with your better halves.
On this recipe particularly, you can’t use small strawberries because it would lose the appeal. You have to carefully pick out the large sweet ones though. Typically, strawberries can be on the sour side. Some sourness may not be masked fully by the chocolate. If the fruit is already ripe and on the sweet side, you wouldn’t have to worry about the tanginess at all.
Also, this is pretty easy to make. It’s literally a matter of dipping the fresh strawberries into the chocolate and then letting it dry out. As an option, you could also use white chocolate on this instead of the plain one. I’ve even tried adding some crushed macadamias and mixed in the dip.. I’m telling you, you have other options. If not, it’s perfectly okay to have it plain and simple. So if you’re planning to have this for dessert later, make sure you’re all set for a good time. Good luck ladies!
- 16 ounces milk chocolate chips
- 2 tablespoons shortening
- 1 pound fresh strawberries with leaves
- Start by preparing the double broiler. Pour in the chocolate and shortening and allow this to melt while stirring occasionally. Blend until smooth.
- Insert a toothpick in the center of the strawberries from the top. Hold strawberries by the base of the toothpick and dip into the chocolate mixture.
- Turn the toothpick upside down and insert into a Styrofoam base that is sturdy enough to hold all of them. This will allow the chocolate to dry.
- Once dried, they’re ready to be served. You may use white chocolate as an alternative to this.
