Chocolate Covered Strawberries for Harboring Hearts
At Baking for Good, we love special requests. So when a brand new nonprofit, Harboring Hearts, invited us to be involved in their kickoff event, we jumped at the chance. When we thought about what to make for their gala, dark chocolate covered strawberries immediately came to mind. 300 of them!
Turns out making 300 chocolate covered strawberries doesn’t take all that long (took us about 2 hours, start to finish). Which means you have no excuse not to whip up a dozen of them for dessert every now and then! Super easy. Here’s how:
Chocolate - we like dark / semi-sweet. Approximately 1 oz per 10 strawberries.
Place a piece of parchment or wax paper on a tray or plate.
Put the chocolate into a heatproof bowl that will rest on top of a saucepan (if you have one, a double boiler is perfect for this). Fill the saucepan (or the bottom part of your double boiler) with an inch or two of water and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Set the bowl of chocolate over the water, making sure the water doesn’t touch the bottom of the bowl. Stir the chocolate as it melts, and as soon as it has all melted, remove it from the heat.
Dip each strawberry into the chocolate, one at a time, and then place on the parchment paper. Once you’ve filled the tray, place it in the refrigerator for 20-30 minutes to set the chocolate.
Serve and enjoy!
