Chocolate Dipped English Strawberries.


It is officially strawberry season.  There are fewer fruits I enjoy more than an English Strawberry, in strawberry season.  I had 3 punnets last week alone.  Usually I like my strawberries at room temperature,  unadulterated or with a slosh of fridge cold cream, but at least once every summer I like to dip them in chocolate and pretend I’ve done something clever.

If you too like to pretend you have flare in the kitchen then may I suggest you gather together the following.

  • A punnet of English strawberries.
  • 1/2 a bar of chocolate.  I usually choose Aero  not sure why, except thats what I had to hand the first time I made them so I have continue to favour this

Then all you need to do is….

  • Melt the chocolate.  My preferred method is in a bowl over a pan of hot water.  Of course microwave melting is fine but this way feels more controllable.
  • Dip the strawberries holding by the stem until they are half covered with chocolate.
  • Set them on some baking parchment on a plate and stick in the fridge to set.

When the chocolate is set, display on an appropriate serving dish, and impress you friends or simply keep them for yourself for a well deserved any day treat
