Chocolate Coated Strawberries

Strawberries are in season and the produce in this country is just extremely excellent - sumptuous, juicy and plump! Since it is in season, it comes a bit cheaper than usual. I was thinking of making a strawberry tart, but having tasted the little bits of heaven in a berry I opted not to subject it to further cooking. At its current state it is best enjoyed fresh!

So what happened instead was :

Dark chocolate was melted in a bain marie, which can be as basic as a bowl on top of boiling water. I put in a little cream and Kahlua for a little kick, dipped the strawberries and just let it set in the fridge for a couple of minutes.

The challenge is how to stop yourself from disrupting the cooling of the chocolate - if in case you can't, well, it's still going to be great!


Those Who Stopped By

Scribe's Notes

This pitstop is where incoherent ramblings seem to have meaning, where things or events are thought of and assessed, where great things are documented and perhaps any not-so-good happenings are written down in attempt to be forgotten!

So from the diversely abstract to the intensely specific, it's off to making tracks, and it is here where it stops for a thought or two.
