Strawberry Filling

    Hull the strawberries. Place them in a blender and blitz until completely puréed. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve to remove the seeds.

    Place in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Reduce to a simmer. Stir constantly until the liquid has thickened and reduced by half. Remove from the heat and cool slightly.

    Line a tray with non-stick paper. Take a small amount of mixture and roll into a small ball. Place on the tray. Repeat until all of the mixture has been used. Freeze for 1 hour.

    Cover a cool surface with non-stick paper, then pour the chocolate onto it. Move it around constantly with a spatula until it thickens to a toothpaste consistency (watch my video on how to temper chocolate).

    Return to the bowl and microwave in 5-second increments until liquid and a temperature of 82.4F-93.2F.

To Assemble

  • Herbal Leaves H1qygbnam

    Line a tray with non-stick paper. Remove the strawberry balls from the freezer. Dip the balls into the chocolate one at a time and decorate with coconut and freeze-dried strawberry before the chocolate sets. Repeat until all are covered. Store in the fridge. Will last for several days.

Note

    Only powdered or oil based items should be added to the chocolate. Water based ingredients will seize the chocolate, ruining it.
