Chocolate Covered Strawberry

No joke, this is the third time I’ve attempted this cordial and photographed it, and the failures will likely be showing up in a January failure report because stuff doesn’t always work out the way I’d hoped. Never mind my good-enough-nail-‘er-down stuff. Sometimes it’s more important to get it done than to make it perfect, and sometimes you just have to do it all over again because it’s embarrassing.

Speaking of embarrassment, I’ve had lots of it in my life, and I’m pretty sure I can recall every single incident. I was a bride’s maid in my sister’s wedding when I was 12 (she’s 14 years older than I am), and when I was leaving the stall and about to head back out, a couple women grabbed me because I’d managed to tuck the back of my dress into my panty hose. WHAT THE WHAT?! I have no idea how I managed to accomplish that, and thank goodness I was stopped because I can only imagine the horror if more people had seen.

Then there are all the horrific elementary school pictures from the late 80s and early 90s, and somehow my mother never told me when it was picture day. Granted, this was a pretty early humiliation, but it certainly taught me the value of actually dressing and brushing my hair when my photo was going to be immortalized on the now dusty shelves of classmates.

Anyway, Valentine’s season is upon us, and the chocolate covered strawberries are out in full force like Ewoks out to mangle storm troopers with sisal rope. Personally, I’m not a big fan of them because there are some weird texture things going on which is why I’m going to attempt these truffle-stuffed strawberries because I do like chocolate and strawberries as a flavor combination – I’m just picky about textures.

Am I alone on this one?

Recipe:

Rim 2 oz cordial glass with chocolate sprinkles. I used honey to get them to stick properly.

Shake 1 oz strawberry liqueur and 1 oz white crème de cacao with ice and strain into glass.

Enjoy!

  1. That’s so funny that you were never prepared for class pictures. For me, it was kind of the opposite. On class picture days, I’d be woken up extra early to get my hair all purdied up. The outfit I was to wear was picked out on the night before. My parents would tell me, “these are pictures you will keep forever and show your children, grandchildren..etc.” and I kind of hated all that fuss.

    So, are you going to be making a superbowl-ish drink soon? I am curious what Super Bowl food you would blend to make a drink out of!

    • Cheese and crackers, I’ve been thinking super bowl drink for a while now, and I haven’t made up my mind yet. I think it’s going to involve hot peppers though. 😀

    • I applaud your perseverance!! 😀

      I personally just avoid them because inevitably chocolate flakes break off and melt on weird places of my face, body, and clothes. lol
