We’re fine with forgoing many of the Valentine’s clichés, but the one tradition that never goes out of style is indulging in a chocolate-covered strawberry (or 5) every season. There’s just something about the sweet and decadent combination of fresh strawberries and rich chocolate that sparks a little romance, plus, fruit is healthy, right? Since many store-bought chocolate-dipped strawberries leave much to be desired, we turned to Austin’s own chocolate expert, Tessa Halstead of Chocolaterie Tessa, for her tips on making this Valentine’s Day favorite.
From Tessa: Making chocolate covered strawberries is actually quite simple, but there are several steps along the way where things can go wrong. Chocolate is temperature sensitive and strawberries lose their freshness quickly, so stick to these tried and true methods and you’ll be rewarded with decadent, fresh flavors and a lot of fun along the way.
