Steps for Making Chocolate Covered Strawberries plus a Few Melting Tips

Come to think of strawberries and love lingers your mind that very moment. People have used these special fruits to symbolize love for many centuries. The use of chocolate to enhance the taste of the berry has brought something even more yummy and romantic. The chocolate covered strawberries are such a delicacy for lovers as well as family. Remember it does not have to be valentine to experiment with this wonderful flavor. If you are creative enough and loves cooking, you could use them to beautify cakes for any family occasions. Your dear ones will definitely enjoy it.

Depending on the number of people, that you wish to have a bite of the red berries, you may need to have these ingredients right in place. Purchase strawberry fruits ensuring that they have their stalks still attached. The number that you need depends on the servings. One would choose 20 – 60 pieces. In place too, you may have partially sweet chocolate and white chocolate well chopped. Now that you already have the most important parts for the job, you may consider some other added flavors like 1-2 tablespoonful brandy, coffee and ¾ cup of cream. These may not be a necessity but one may choose to have a variety of tastes. With these ingredients ready, you may start preparing your sweet chocolate covered strawberries at your own comfort.

First, you have to melt the chocolate. One may choose to do this in microwave bowls for a period of 1 minute; making sure that you do the two types separately. Ensure that you stir the russet, until it softens. If you do not have this machine, put the semisweet and white varieties of chocolate chips in two different bowls. Let some water boil in two separate saucepans under medium temperature until it boils then put off the heat. Dip the two bowls slowly in the water ensuring the water does not splash or enter in. let the chips melt until it liquefies. At this point, you may add cream and other flavors that you may please, and then stir the mixture until smooth. With the chocolate now ready, remove the bowls from the water and lay down a polished paper.

Pick one strawberry at a time holding it by the stalk, and then dip it in the darker type as you twist it a little until it is partly covered. Lift from the bowl and shake a bit to let down the excess. Place them on the paper as you repeat the whole process with all the rest. After the chocolate has settled, sprinkle the white chocolate over the berries to give them that unique beautification. This may be a form of art for those who love decorations. You are not limited to what extent of imagination you wish to try your piece of creativity. Now you are ready to put your chocolate covered strawberries to the test. Just let them cool down and harden. Serve them at the room temperature with any of your favorite drinks. Enjoy the great and unique flavor that will make your mouth water just at the mention of it.

Make Losing Weight Fun With Chocolate Covered Strawberries and Champagne

Make Losing Weight Fun With Chocolate Covered Strawberries and Champagne the 100 Calorie Way

Every December, I pack up Grandma and the kids and we take a cruise vacation. Last December we sailed out of Fort Lauderdale on Holland America’s Eurodam. It was our first time sailing with Holland America and we absolutely loved it. The Eurodam was a brand new ship and a step above what I was used to. For example, I never liked those plastic tumblers and coffee cups you have to use at most cruises’ buffets. The Eurodam had real glasses and real coffee cups. A minor detail to most folks, but I’m picky that way. What else? The fresh flower arrangements throughout the ship were amazing! I love fresh flowers and make sure to have them in my home all the time. Fresh flowers create a positive environment and they uplift my spirit.

The Eurodam has a special feature that we thoroughly enjoyed. You can reserve a private cabana on the Observation Deck in The Retreat. Can you imagine, your own special spa retreat overlooking the sea? We were treated like royalty. In addition to delicious fruit kabobs daily, we were served an exceptionally special treat every day at 4:00; decadent chocolate covered strawberries and champagne. Of course, you can guess where we were at 4:00 everyday! I’ve had chocolate covered strawberries before, but these were to die for! The Eurodam is doing it right! Picture yourself sailing in the wide open azure sea, the warm sun kissing your body, the wind in your hair AND chocolate covered strawberries and champagne. Now that’s living.

It gets better! Chocolate covered strawberries are actually a low calorie food at about 100 calories for each sweet and juicy, red ripened strawberry. Champagne is only 100 calorie for 5 oz. So we could have this delicious treat for about 200 calories and still lose weight while on our cruise! YUM!
