You're going to need just a few ingredients before you get started.
1/3 cup of dark chocolate chip morsels
1/8 of chopped chocolate covered almonds
4-5 large strawberries
1 tablespoon of Himalayan salt
1 tablespoon of butter or coconut oil
A few other things you will also need.
Start by chopping up some chocolate covered almonds. If you can't find chocolate covered almonds, regular roasted, salted, or unsalted almonds are also good substitutes.
Next, melt your chocolate chip morsels. We like to use the traditional over and under steam method of melting our chocolate morsels. Bring the water to a boil and then simmer down. Put the pan with the chocolate chip morsels on top of the pan with the steaming water and let the chocolate slowly melt.
Using this method, the chocolate melts much more slowly and doesn’t burn to the bottom. Add the butter or coconut oil to thin the chocolate and make it easier to blend in your distillate and to make it easier to dip and cover your strawberries.
Add the tablespoon of Himalayan salt to the melted chocolate chip morsels for a nice sweet and salty flavor.
Next, prepare your distillate by bringing a small ramakin of water to a slight boil.
Submerge your distillate syringe into the
water to soften the liquid. This allows the distillate to become thinner and easier to dispense the appropriate amount of product into the melted chocolate.
Distillates are already decarboxylated so no need to worry about all that. Once the liquid is hot, remove the safety cap and very gently squeeze in the desired amount. Blend the mixture with a silicone spatula, folding the chocolate and stirring vigorously to ensure a homogenous blend.
Once your delicious distillate has been added to your dark chocolate morsels, it's time to start dipping those beautiful red strawberries you chose for this very moment. To make dipping easy, skewer your strawberries from the top, pulling the leaves back so as not to dip them in chocolate. Angle the strawberries slightly as you dip and twirl the skewer to get a nice even coat of melted chocolate all the way around. Lightly tap the skewer on the side of the pan to get the excess chocolate off.
Now for the final touches. Sprinkle your dipped strawberries with the chocolate covered chopped almonds to add a crunchy and delicious texture. Lay the chocolate covered strawberries on wax paper and put in the refrigerator to harden the chocolate.
Serve these delicious Valentine's Day delights with a glass of Connelly's Strawberry Country Creme on the rocks and don't forget to share them with your sweetheart.
