Strawberries Dipped in Chocolate Three Ways

Recipe No.1:

  • strawberries (the largest ones you can find)
  • dark or white chocolate

Rinse the berries and pat dry completely; do not hull.  Melt the chocolate of your choice in the microwave for 60 seconds.  Remove, stir and microwave for another 10 seconds until the chocolate has melted.  Or melt in a double boiler.   Allow the chocolate to cool slightly to thicken.

Dip the bottom half of each strawberry in the melted chocolate.  To dry place on waxed paper, turned upside down on a cooling rack or place in a trimmed egg carton  to harden.  If you want you can decorate the finished berries with drizzles of the opposite kind of chocolate you used in a piping bag filled with chocolate,   then dip in chopped nuts before the chocolate hardens.

Strawberries Dipped in Chocolate Three Ways

Recipe No. 3:

  • 2-1/2 cups whipping cream
  • 12 oz. bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1/4 cup orange liqueur, amaretto, brandy or you can use orange juice

Combine all three ingredients in a 1-1/2 quart slow cooker. Cook on low heat setting for 2-1/2 to 3 hours, stirring once halfway through the cooking time until the mixture is smooth and the chocolate is melted. Can keep on low for 1 hour; any longer and the mixture could become grainy.
