How do I get that drizzle effect on dipped strawberries?

MrsD Feb 18, 2008 04:22 PM

I am making chocolate dipped strawberries and want to do the white chocolate drizzle on them. What type of chocolate is usually thin enough to use for drizzle? Do I use a spoon or a fork to drizzle? How can I make sure that it looks perfect and professional?

    Melt white chocolate and spoon it into a ziploc bag. Squeeze the melted chocolate to one corner and cut the tip off (only a little piece). Squeeze bag gently to get the fine lines. You control the lines this way.

      It also helps to use a bit of vegetable oil with the white chocolate to thin it a bit.

      You can also achieve a more... impressionistic? abstract?... effect by dipping a fork in the melted chocolate and moving it rapidly over the strawberries so it splatters them in roughly straight lines.

        I usually put a few tablespoons of melted white chocolate in a wilton candy bottle and use it to drizzle... but a ziploc bag works too, just remember to cut the hole fairly small. Otherwise white chocolate tends to harden quicker than milk/dark chocolate so work quickly. :)
