Chocolate Covered Strawberries Infused With Liquor

Tuesday, 4 December 2012

 Today I felt rather creative and decided to make my own chocolate covered strawberries. The alcohol part is optional. This is a really simple DIY project and you can't go wrong. 

Let's get started...

You will need the following:
  • Strawberries
  • Chocolate (I used milk chocolate)
  • Alcohol of your choice
  • Toothpick x1
  • Spoon
  • Cloth
  • Kitchen Roll
  • Tray 
  • Bowls x2
  • Fridge
Difficulty Rating: Not difficult at all

Time Required: About 15 - 20 minutes

Step 1: Cover your tray with tin foil/baking paper.


Step 2: Wash and dry your strawberries.


 Step 3: If you would like alcohol inside your strawberry, take a toothpick and poke a few holes around the strawberry near the bottom. Else, skip this step and move onto step 5!


Step 4: Pour the alcohol of your choice into a small bowl. Take a toothpick and poke a hole into the top of the strawberry. Soak it into alcohol for a little while, rotating as necessary.

Step 5: Pour chocolate chips into a (microwaveable) bowl. Heat the chocolate in a pan or if you wish to make life easier for yourself, heat it for 30 seconds on low heat setting in your microwave.

Step 6: Wrap a cloth around the bowl and remove from microwave.

Step 7: Stir the chocolate until melted and smooth. If you can still see chocolate chips, place back into your microwave for another 30 seconds. Repeat step 7 until chocolate is smooth.

 Step 8: This is the fun part! Hold your strawberry by the stem and dip half of it into the bowl containing chocolate. Repeat for all strawberries.


 Step 9: Place your chocolate covered strawberry onto your baking tray to set for 10 minutes.


Step 10: Place the tray into your fridge for an hour.


Step 11: Remove from fridge and serve! :)

As Christmas is just around the corner, these would make great little gifts for your family and friends or a nice treat for yourself!
