White Chocolate Strawberry Failure
So, it is rare that you see anyone post their failed attempts in the kitchen. Yet, they are so important. This is how we continue to improve! This particular failure had me in tears, because I was laughing so hard at myself! It's embarrassing, and hilarious.
I set out to make white chocolate covered strawberries. Simple, right? Especially since this Christmas season I made 300 chocolate mint cheesecake truffles which I hand dipped in dark chocolate! Well, these strawberries definitely didn't go as planned! (My husband said they came out looking like creatures of the deep)... hehehehe.
I MEAN TWO INGREDIENTS: WHITE CHOCOLATE AND STRAWBERRIES -- how simple.
Here were my biggest mistakes that would have made my white chocolate strawberries much prettier.
- Follow a dang recipe! This would have prevented all of this.
- Don't heat the white chocolate on any setting above the lowest setting on your stove top burner (trust me)...
- Make sure you let your strawberries dry COMPLETELY any little tiny drip of water will turn your chocolate into lumpy potato soup
- Don't trim the tops, leave the green -- it gives you something to hold (strawberries slide off of forks and wooden skewers quite easily)
Overall.. it was hilarious and they still got eaten! These white chocolate covered strawberries haven't seen the last of me -- I will have my redemption!!
This was such a great reminder to always laugh and have fun -- even when things don't go as we had hoped. ;)
