chocolate dipped strawberries - in chocola gedoopte aardbeien (GF) spring party 2011


Every year I plan a spring party with my best friends, girls only.
It’s a great way to catch up with every one, talk about new plans and adventures, eat drink dance and, very important, try out some new gluten free food! This friday my spring party of 2011 took place and we had a great time.
Everybody brought something and I made cake and all kind of bites. We had:

Raspberry cheesecake
Sweet and spicy almonds
Crab claws with caper mayonnaise
Fresh oysters
Coquilles
Labneh cheese balls
Apricot chutney
Sesame crackers
Almond cookies
Chocolate dipped strawberries

Together with a nice pot of tea and “some” bottles of prosecco and white wine you can imagine that it was very sweet.
This week I’m gonna give you some of the recipes starting with the very easy and really heavenly chocolate dipped strawberries.

Chocolate dipped strawberries
250 g beautiful ripe strawberries
200 g chocolate, I used organic milk chocolate coating from Vivani

Melt the chocolate slowly au bain marie. Don’t let the hot water touch the bottom of the chocolate pan.
Wash the strawberries and let them dry completely or dry with a towel, but take care, don’t crush them.
Dip the strawberries in the chocolate and let them dry on plate covered with parchment paper. Keep them refrigerated till you serve them, it’s heaven biting into the hard chocolate and then into the soft, moist and sweet strawberry, mmm.


Aardbeien in chocola gedoopt
250 g mooie rijpe aardbeien
200 g chocolade, ik gebruikte biologische melkchocolade couverture van Vivani

Smelt de chocolade zachtjes au bain Marie en zorg ervoor dat het hete water de bodem van de bovenste pan niet raakt.
Was de aardbeien en laat ze geheel drogen of droog ze voorzichtig met een theedoek.
Doop de aardbeien in de chocola en laat ze opdrogen op een met bakpapier bedekt bord. Bewaar ze in de koelkast tot je ze serveert; dan ervaar je de hemelse smaak door in de harde chocola te bijten en dan de zachte, vochtige en zoete aardbei te proeven, mmm.
