It's almost Chocolate Time Day... I mean Valentine's Day! Whenever the holidays roll around you and your sweetheart may find it difficult to stay focused on eating right, especially when there is chocolate everywhere you turn. This year for dessert try making your own chocolate covered strawberries. By making them yourself you can control the amount of sugar, butter, and milk. You can even control the chocolate. Below the directions are a few variations to spice up the evening.
16 oz Strawberries
1/4 cup Butter softened
1/4 cup Milk 1/2 cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder 3 1/2 cups Confectioner Sugar
Cooked Instead of whisking your ingredients this recipe can be cooked.
- Sift the sugar into a bowl and add the the cocoa. Set aside.
- Place the butter and milk in a sauce pan on low. Stir occasionally and cook until the butter has melted. By cooking on a low temperature you will avoid burning your chocolate.
- With a spatula slow stir in the sugar cocoa mix until well blended. Remove from heat.
- Dip your strawberries and place on a plate.
