The reason I call this strawberries double luscious is because they are. What can be more luscious than strawberries and chocolate? The answer is strawberries, chocolate and rum!
Strawberries and chocolate are made to impress and the truth is nobody can resist such temptation. They are beautiful to look at and a delicious treat to eat. The combination of fleshy strawberries covered with chocolate infused with rum liquor is just a perfect one!
Strawberries and chocolate are a classic. They can be served as dessert or as a snack. They pair perfectly with sparkling wines including Champagne and Prosecco, of course, or simply with red or white wines and even with a cup of tea. They can also be used to top a cake.
Strawberries and chocolate are so easy to make that once you finish reading this post you will be running to the grocery store to get ready to impress someone!
A few considerations: make sure the strawberries have their stems, make sure they are at room temperature and perfectly dry so the chocolate sticks to them. Once the chocolate is melted, cover the strawberries as soon as possible so there will be no need to reheat it.
Chocolate Strawberries | Ingredients for 20 big strawberries
20 big strawberries rinsed and dried
5 ounces (140 grs) of semi sweet chocolate (I used Ghirardelli premium baking bar)
¼ cup of fat free half and half
2 Tbs. of Rhum Orange Liqueur
Have all ingredients at room temperature. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the chocolate in a small sauce pan and melt it on low to medium heat, 1 to 2 minutes. With a wooden spoon, stir the chocolate to make sure it is perfectly smooth and fluid. Once the chocolate is fluid, turn off the heat and add the half and half. Stir until incorporated. Add the rum liquor and stir until incorporated. One at a time, grasp the berries by the stem and dip them in the chocolate, swirling to cover them evenly. Place the strawberries in the baking sheet. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to allow the chocolate to get hard. Serve the strawberries at room temperature.
