Nothing quite puts me in a foul mood the way Candymaking does. White chocolate is so damned finicky – argggggg.
My (stupid) goal was to make a homemade treat for my friend’s birthday, which is today, but since I was the only person at work – I made them for tomorrow. Reasoning went as follows: something bite-sized, easy to share or not share, has chocolate, is elegant, easy for me to transport on bus. I (stupidly) came up with chocolate-dipped strawberries. How hard could it be?
Confections and I have an interesting history. I think of making them, I look up recipes, I make them and nearly ruin half of my candy making equipment, I vow never to do it again – ten years later I repeat the same steps.
start with organic strawberries, washed, and patted completely dry
