Chocolate covered strawberry roses combine all of my favorite gifts to receive on Valentine’s Day. This delicious recipe would make a wonderful present to that special someone.
Step 1: Chocolate plastic
Chocolate plastic or molding chocolate
First step is making the Chocolate plastic. Chocolate plastic is a delicious, versatile chocolate paste that can be used to decorate cakes and many other pastries. I am using white chocolate but this recipe can also be made with milk or dark chocolate. The procedures for milk chocolate is the same, but if you are going to use dark chocolate, increase the amount of corn syrup to 2/3 cup. However you cannot achieve the same coloring effects when using milk or dark chocolate.
1 lb white chocolate
1/2 cup light corn syrup
Place your chocolate in a large microwave-safe bowl.
Microwave the chocolate until melted, mixing every 30 seconds to avoid overheating the chocolate. It took me 1 minute and a half to fully melt my chocolate.
Add the corn syrup and stir until the mixture is thoroughly combined.
Scoop the chocolate onto a large sheet of plastic wrap, and wrap it securely. Allow the chocolate to cool and solidify at room temperature, for at least 6 hours or overnight.
