I was wondering what chocolate is used to dip strawberries in?? Is it regular Ganache? I like the strawberries that are coated thickly and not shiny. I know my ganache recipe gets thick like frosting, so I dont think that is what I would use. Is there something else added to the chocolate for coating the Strawberries? I am just unsure about this, if I can get any hints and tips that would be Wonderful!!! Thank you!!!
I use candy melts.
Thanks Leahs. I haven't used candy melts yet. Do they taste like chocolate? Are they real chocolate? Sorry, I don't mean to ask all these questions. I just have never used them. Thanks!
Well I just do it with the chips ... I add a little shortening to my chips and microwave a little at a time... till smooth... like every 30 sec. I stir... there really is no need to use a big long recipe for this. Also in a pinch I have used the bakers chocolate especially to dip fruit in.. baking isle by the chocolate...it's already in the container ready to melt for the strawberries
Ohhh btw.. you can use any type of chocolate chip... semi sweet ... dark.... swirled... what have you
Thanks Christi! Didn't think about doing just plain old chocolate chips. Why do you add the shortening to it? Just curious to know what it does for the chocolate. Thanks
It keeps it's shine when it hardens
Hope you try it
