Ingredients:

12 oz. chocolate chips (milk, semi-sweet or dark)

1 small box of strawberries, cut into small pieces

chocolate candy molds

 

Directions:

1 – Put half of the chocolate to melt in a water bath.

2 – Once melted, place the bowl in a tray with ice and stir well to cool off a little bit.

3 – Pour the chocolate into the mold. Turn the mold slightly so that the chocolate gets to the edges too.

4 – Turn the mold upside down and tap lightly to remove excess chocolate.

5 – Take the molds to the refrigerator for 15 minutes.

6 – Meanwhile, melt the other chocolate half.

7 – Remove the molds from the refrigerator, add the strawberries and top with melted chocolate.

8 – Put back in the fridge and leave until the chocolate is hard. Carefully, remove the candies from the molds.

To melt the chocolate in the microwave, place on medium power and set for 1 minute. Then, remove, stir and place another minute. Repeat the process until chocolate is melted.

 

Tips and Options:

  • The chocolate can be milk, semisweet, bittersweet or white.
  • Replace the strawberry by grape, hazelnut or peanut butter. It’ll be great too.
