Strawberries. Chocolate. Two of my favorite things. The flavor of the two combined is the best of both worlds. The pair just looks and tastes like it was meant to be. Chocolate covered strawberries can be really pretty to look at. Dress them up in their Easter best and you may feel almost guilty about eating them. Until you take a bite, that is. Here’s how you make them.
Easter Chocolate Covered Strawberries
- 2 cups Ghirardelli white chocolate
- 1 carton of strawberries, washed and dried
Instructions for strawberries
Melt chocolate in a double broiler.
After you washed and rinsed the strawberries, did the strawberries into the chocolate and place onto a wax paper baking sheet.
Royal Icing Ingredients
- 2 egg whites
- 1/2 tsp cream of tarter
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 – 3 C powder sugar
- pink, purple and yellow gel colors
Instructions for royal icing
Combine all ingredients in a stand up mixer.
If icing is a yellow liquid add in more powder sugar and beat until stiff white peaks form.
Separate into 3 bowls and add in your colors.
Scoop colors into 3 piping bags with #2 tips.
Instructions for decorating
Once chocolate coated strawberries are dried take a color of your first choosing and drizzle over the strawberries.
Repeat with other colors.
Let dry for 30 minutes before eating.
