Chocolate Covered Strawberries
I first off want to say that these turned out absolutely perfect. And its thanks to the wonderful reviewers on here, so thanks everyone who does helpful reviews. These are some of the things I garnered from all your suggestions that worked wonderfully:
I didnt have shortening, someone suggested canola oil, used that, the chocolate hardened, but not to the point of breaking off first bite, it was perfect.
I used the micro, someone said to make sure I stir every 20 secs or so, so as not to burn, so thats what I did, and it melted to a perfect consistancy (I made the mistake last time I tried these , without having looked on here first, and I burned the chocolate, of course..lol).
I used white chocolate (yummmmm).
I used cold, dry berries, the chocolate was already hardening on them before I even finished the batch.
I did the decorative drizzle with a ziplock, but I used milk choc for the drizzle. Looked so pretty too.
I didnt follow any measurements, I did it by eyeing it, and I used 4 squares of choc (about 4 oz), approx 1 tsp of canola oil, and about 18 good sized strawberries.
It was such a simple but awesome recipe, I'll be making again and again.
