There’s something about strawberries that makes me think of warmth, sweetness, and the changing of the seasons. Or maybe that’s just the wine in these Wine Infused Strawberries that has me feeling really good about life today. Seriously, I didn’t think the concept of chocolate-covered strawberries, as simple as it is, could ever be improved upon. But I suppose if there’s anything I should have learned about life so far, it’s that the addition of wine to just about anything is a recipe for success. And speaking of recipes…let me give you the rundown on how to step up your strawberry game.
What You’ll Need to Make Wine Infused Strawberries:
- 1 pint of strawberries
- 1 cup white chocolate
- 1 cup strawberry wine
- 20 plastic pipette tubes
How to Make Wine Infused Strawberries:
And the best part about these upgraded chocolate-covered strawberries? They’re so super easy, you’ll barely have any extra time to sample the strawberry wine. The first thing you’ll want to do is melt your white chocolate. You can do this in a double boiler, but if you’re lazy like me, you can just chop up the chocolate into a bowl and stick it in the microwave. Heat it in 20 second increments, stirring after each one, until it’s all completely melted. Dip the strawberries in the white chocolate and place them on a cookie sheet, then put them in the fridge to let them set. Depending on how thick you make the chocolate layer, this should take about 15 minutes. While you’re waiting, you can fill the plastic pipette tubes with the strawberry wine – now’s the time to sneak a few samples, if you’re so inclined. Once the chocolate is set, place the wine-filled pipette tubes into each strawberry. Then, enjoy!
