It's spring now and a lot of fruits that hardly available during winter now are widely sold at groceries stores and supermarkets. One of them, strawberry!
Not only they are cheap (500gram range between EU0.99 to EU1.99), they are sweet and fresh. Most of the time we just eat them raw and plain or I add into my morning cereal. Then suddenly I remember the Chocolate Strawberries which became so famous back in Malaysia when Malaysia's famour singer, Datuk Siti Nurhaliza shared her love story how this chocolate strawberries made her fall in love with her husband. I heard after that, people started selling and buying chocolate strawberries like hot cake! Well, I never bought....
So now since strawberries are easily available, why not making the strawberries coated chocolate myself?
It's very easy to make. All you need; strawberries as much as you want- don't remove the leaves, a bar of cooking chocolate and some vegetable shortening or butter. Melt the chocolate and vegetable shortening in double-boiling method. Once the chocolate melt, remove it from the heat and dip each strawberry into the chocolate. It would be easier if you use tooth pick to hold the strawberry (I didn't have tooth pick). Then hold the strawberry by making the tooth inserted onto strayfoam (or anything equivalent) to let the chocolate harden.
Taraa!!! It's ready!
