Decorate Your Chocolate Covered Strawberries
Making White Chocolate Bark
When I have leftover white chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate after making a chocolate covered strawberries as shown in my two video mini-lessons above, I like to make other chocolate goodies.
Just add your favorite nuts and/or dried fruit to the melted white chocolate and drop onto parchment paper or waxed paper and let cool. Or make the chocolate bark that I demonstrate in this 2 minute video below.
If you like, you can decorate your white chocolate candies with the semi-sweet chocolate just as we did in the video showing how to decorate your white chocolate covered strawberries.
Once your white chocolate bark candies are cooled and firm, remove them from the parchment or waxed paper and serve (or eat ;~). Add them to a pretty candy dish and they can even make a nice gift.
I love the tart sweet flavor of dried cherries along with crunchy toasted almond slivers added to semi-sweet or white chocolate. Yummmeee. But you can add any combination that you like. Dried cranberries also add a nice tart contrast to the sweet white chocolate. Raisins and peanuts are another combination that I especially like with semi-sweet chocolate.
To use up your remaining melted chocolate, you can explore your pantry for other goodies that you can dip or chocolate coat. Here are a few possibilities.
- Dried Turkish apricots
- Chopped up marshmallows and walnuts to make rocky road
- Oreo cookies, peanut butter cookies or other sandwich cookies.
- Cereal like Chex, cornflakes, shredded wheat or granola
- Any combination of nuts and/or dried fruit
- Ritz crackers
- Crushed peppermint candy
- Drizzle over the top of muffins
- Dip the tops of cupcakes
- Drizzle on shortbread cookies
The possibilities are endless.
If you are saving your chocolate covered strawberries for a special event later, you can still eat your goodies made with the leftovers right away. MMmm.
Go ahead and make your own chocolate covered strawberries.
I hope that you have some creative fun and enjoy making and eating your lovely chocolate covered strawberries.
