How to Make a Chocolate Covered Strawberry Rose Bouquet for Valentine's Day.
delicious white chocolate covered strawberries decorated with edible rose petal fondant .
One of my favorite things to make with my kids to celebrate Valentine's Day is chocolate covered strawberries. We love stretching our creativity and putting a little heart into the art of food decorating.
It's so fun dipping the strawberries in melted chocolate and watching the strawberries swirl and twirl as they lather in a bath of yummy sweetness. My favorite part is adding the toppings though! Some of our favorite toppings to put on top of the chocolate covered strawberries are crushed peanuts, caramel drizzle, melted marshmallow, rainbow sprinkles, and sea salt.
However, this year I thought I would challenge myself a bit by switching things up from our usual chocolate covered strawberries by making this adorable and edible white chocolate covered strawberry rose bouquet.
I came across this idea on YouTube believe it or not, and although I felt somewhat intimidated by making the fondant by scratch, I decided to give it a whirl. This recipe is so easy to recreate.
If you are a beginner at food decorating like me, then this recipe is for you! It's so simple and so delicious.
White Chocolate Covered Strawberry Rose Bouquet
What you'll need:
1 lb white chocolate
2 tbsp corn syrup
red food coloring
12 wooden skewers
floral tape (optional)
Melt 4 squares of the white chocolate for approximately 20 seconds in the microwave. Stir and repeat as needed until the white chocolate has melted without any lumps.
In a separate bowl, add 2 tablespoons of corn syrup and 3-4 drops of red food coloring. (The more drops of food coloring you use, the darker the rose petal fondant will be.)
Stir the corn syrup and food coloring together and then add the mixture to the melted white chocolate.
