Secondary Spices and Flavorings
9 to 10 strands of Saffron (soaked in hot water for a minute)
1 dozen long stem Strawberries, washed and dried
1 8 oz bar semi-sweet chocolate
1/4 cup white chocolate chips
1/4 cup crushed almonds
1/4 cup coconut flakes
Boil some water in a large pan.
Place a smaller pan over the boiling water and add the semi-sweet chocolate.
Stir the chocolate until it is smooth and melted.
Perform the same procedure with the white chocolate.
Remove the white chocolate from heat once it is done and add the strands of saffron and mix.
Remove the semi-sweet chocolate from heat and dip strawberries one by one into the bowl of chocolate.
Hold it upright for a few seconds so that any excess chocolate drips off.
Dip the strawberries into any of the toppings - coconut or almonds or drizzle the melted white chocolate with saffron onto the chocolate dipped strawberry with a fork.
Place the strawberries on a tray with parchment paper.
Set aside for about 30 minutes at which time the chocolate should be set.
