Now other than scrapbooking, I also enjoy creating in the kitchen. I'm getting together with some girlfriends for our women's Bible study group tonight, so I promised everyone that I would bring chocolate covered strawberries. Nothing can bring women closer together like deep conversation and some really good dessert. And, this is an easy, quick treat to prepare (easier than you might realize.)
To make your own sweet treats, start by melting some good semi-sweet chocolate chips in a double-boiler (a bowl set on top of a pot with a small amount of water in it, set on top of the burner.) Keep stirring the chips until they are thoroughly melted- you don't want lumpy strawberries. This step takes a little bit of patience since you don't want to leave the mixture unattended.
I like to add a little extra touch to mine by drizzling them with white chocolate. I simply melt some white chocolate and pour it into some parchment paper which I have made into a piping bag. If that last statement seems kind of foreign to you, don't fear. Just pour the chocolate into a ziploc baggie and snip a tiny bit off of one corner. Then squeeze the piping bag while simultaneously moving your arm across the top of the berries. I had some extra left, so I piped little hearts on each one. Lastly, put your dipped berries in the refridgerator to set, and voila'! An elegant dessert that is easy to prepare!
