Few desserts guarantee fornication like chocolate-dipped strawberries. You have the chocolate/strawberry APHRODISIAC element right off the bat. But there is so much more to this seductively simple dessert. These berries take champagne to places you usually experience behind closed doors. All the better for setting the stage for seduction. Be sure to follow the unwritten rule that you never stuff a chocolate-dipped strawberry in your own mouth. Let your date feed you and return the favor. Play your cards right and the berries will be the first of many things you put in your date’s moth. My first dance with chocolate-dipped strawberries took place in a hotel room with my college girlfriend at the time. I found it odd that her sorority sister was there too. But when the girls started feeding each other I knew this was my anniversary gift. I savored every last morsel of sweet satisfaction. The strawberries were also quite good.
1. 1 cup of white chocolate chips
2. 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
3. 2/3 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips
4. 1 dozen strawberries
Heat up 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a small pot on stove at the lowest heat. Pour in the white chocolate chips and stir them until they melt into the oil. Dip each strawberry, using a spoon if necessary to evenly cover each strawberry. Place the dipped strawberries on wax paper and allow the white chocolate to cool and harden. (Approx 30 minutes)
Follow the same steps with the semi-sweet chocolate chips. The darker chips are more pliable, which is why we dip berries in white chocolate first. Once each strawberries has a double coating of white and dark, set them on the wax paper and allow it to cool and harden. (Approx 30 minutes) Serve it up with some champagne and let the good times roll.
