I don't know how to make this chocolate for couples. Teach me please.







Hi Margi,

That photo you provided is a picture of chocolate covered strawberries. They are really cute and would make a very nice chocolate for couples for a wedding, anniversary, or any special formal occasion.


They look harder to make than they really are.


What you'll need:

  • Fresh ripe strawberries, washed and dried with the stems on.
  • white chocolate
  • milk or dark chocolate
  • piping bag or small plastic baggie that you can cut the tip from to make a piping bag



Here's how to make the tuxedo and wedding dress chocolate strawberries:

  1. Rinse your ripe firm strawberries and pat dry with paper towels.

  2. Melt the chocolate. You'll be using the white chocolate first.

    You can melt in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds.

    You can also melt by placing the chocolate in a dry pan or bowl and holding it over a pan of gently simmering water - that's the "double boiler" method. Stir the chocolate until melted, but be very careful not to let any moisture or water get into the chocolate or it will stiffen up and not go smooth.

  3. Dip the strawberries in the white chocolate until completely covered (except for the green stems) and place on a piece of waxed paper (greaseproof paper) to set.

  4. Once the first layer is set, to make the tuxedo look, dip the strawberries at an angle into the milk or dark chocolate to get the jacket effect as in the photo. You only leave a bit of the white chocolate still showing.

  5. Place some of the remaining melted chocolates into piping bags and make dots for the buttons and little triangles to form the bow tie. You could also just use a toothpick or something similar to dot on the needed chocolate.

    On the wedding dress strawberries, use the white chocolate in a bag to pipe the pearls around the neck and the ribbon look across the rest of the dress.



Here's a video that helps to illustrate the process step by step.





Hope this helps you make some gorgeous chocolate for couples. I'd love to see your finished work when you're done!

Blessings,
Angie
