The Pin Junkie: Chocolate Covered Strawberry Roses

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Roses

Chocolate covered strawberries are a special treat for Valentine's Day.  This year, how about adding a little something extra and making chocolate covered strawberry roses?  They are not much harder to make than regular chocolate covered strawberries.

You will need:
fresh strawberries
wooden skewers
white chocolate
red food coloring
a piping bag & decorating tip

Wash and rinse the strawberries.  Make sure they are 100% dry before dipping them in chocolate.  If the strawberries are wet, the chocolate won't stick to them.  Then poke a wooden skewer through the top of each strawberry.

Dip the strawberry in melted white chocolate.

Allow the chocolate to cool and harden.  
Here's another trick I learned from Pinterest, though it was originally used for cake pops:  use a colander to hold the strawberries while the chocolate dries. 

Once each strawberry was dipped in chocolate, I mixed in a few drops of red food coloring to the leftover chocolate, spooned it into a piping bag, and piped it onto the strawberries.  If you don't have a piping bag, you could try using a plastic bag and cut the tip off of a corner, but I think a piping bag would work much better.

By the time I was finished, 
I had a whole bouquet of chocolate covered strawberry roses!

  7. Holy cow, these are really pretty! I love the pink and white together--I bet it looks really wonderful when you bite into one, since the berries are pink and white inside. Yum!

    1. I agree. The pink and white are pretty, but I would prefer milk or dark chocolate since I like it better than white chocolate. Brown roses just aren't as pretty!
