Chocolate Dipped Strawberries

These really speak for themselves. It you can going to have a little of whats bad – good to combine it with something good! Kids will love making these chocolate dipped strawberries – and you will too! Forget all the rules and have a bit of fun.

Ingredients:

Strawberries

Good quality plain chocolate

Toppings: sprinkles, stars, chopped nuts, bee pollen etc..

Method:

  • Break your chocolate into pieces and set over a bain-marie. Be careful not to get water in the chocolate. Stir occasionally
  • Prepare your toppings and a tray lined with baking paper
  • To help your chocolate set faster you could put your strawberries in the freezer for 5 minutes to make them really cold
  • Holding the ‘head’ of the strawberry – dip into the chocolate and lay on your lined tray
  • Sprinkle your toppings over the chocolate dipped strawberries
  • Allow the chocolate to set (if you can!) you can store them in the fridge to help speed this ¬†up
