For all those Football lovers here is a sweet treat that will knock your socks off! Once you learn how to decorate these Strawberries you can play around and try your own decorated fruit versions.
In a microwave safe coffee mug add the dark chocolate chips.
Microwave on high for 30 seconds. Stir and repeat, but this time, add the coconut oil and heat until melted. Don’t over heat or your chocolate will seize and there is really no coming back from that.
Grab the strawberry by the leaves (make sure strawberries are completely dry or the chocolate won’t stick). Dip in the chocolate and swirl around carefully until coated. Hold above the coffee mug for a few seconds to allow the excess to drip off.
Place on a sheet of parchment paper to dry.
Push forward slightly to avoid a pool of dried chocolate forming in the front of your berry. Allow to dry for about 15 minutes.
In a separate coffee mug (or really, any microwave safe bowl will work for this), add the white chocolate. Microwave on high for 20 seconds and stir, repeat at this time add the coconut oil and heat until melted.
Pour the white chocolate into your piping bag. Pipe on a stripe at the top and one at the bottom of your strawberries.
Then pipe a line down the middle of the berry.
Then pipe 5 or 6 lines across the middle line.
-Let the white chocolate cool a bit, but not harden, before piping. If it’s too hot, it’ll be really runny.
-When piping the lines, double back a bit to avoid the “strings” of white chocolate from dripping down the sides.
You will need the following to prepare this recipe:
- piping bag with a #2 tip
- Parchment paper
- Coffee mugs or an electric fondue maker if available
