Chocolate Dipped Strawberries
Chokladdoppade jordgubbar



I love chocolate dipped strawberries! They're so easy to make, delicious, and present beautifully. 

I recently came across a picture of chocolate dipped strawberries that had been arranged with flowers, and loved the idea. All you need is some floral foam (you'll find it in a hobby store like Michael's or a florist), a bouquet of flowers, some ribbon, and of course, strawberries and chocolate. 




The easiest way to coat strawberries with chocolate is to insert a toothpick by the stem, and gently dip the strawberry in the tempered chocolate. Make sure you melt the chocolate carefully, since it will become thicker if exposed to too much heat and end up looking lumpy. If you want to add some color to the white chocolate, mix with a few drops of gel coloring, or buy already colored candy melts. Put the other end of the toothpick in a styrofoam block to dry. This will make the strawberries evenly smooth on all sides.

To make the arrangement, take the floral foam and arrange the flowers and the dried chocolate covered strawberries. Make sure you're not leaving too much space so you expose the foam underneath. Wrap a wide ribbon along the sides and secure with some tape, and voilá!




Vem älskar inte jordgubbar doppade i choklad? Nyligen såg jag en rolig idé, där någon hade gjort ett arrangemang av blommor och chokladdoppade jordgbbar, och var tvungen att prova. Allt du behöver är oasis (finns att köpa i blomaffär eller hobbybutik), blombukett, jordgubbar, choklad och band att knyta runt arrangemanget. Det viktiga att tänka på när du doppar jordgubbarna är att chokladen värms upp långsamt, så att den inte blir för tjock. Använd gärna en tandpetare som du sätter in i jordgubben för att underlätta doppandet. Lycka till!

  1. Pink cake and the pink decoration of whole venue is really a good option to be done on little girl's birthday. She will like it.
