Dry…make sure you dry your berries
Melt…I used dark chocolate candy melts
Dip…Grab your berries by the hair ( or if they have them, stems) and dip
Drizzle…I drizzled w/ melted white chocolate
Claim it was REALLY REALLY hard!
For the cookies, I used my tried and true chocolate chip cookie recipe, then did the dip and drizzle steps from the berries.
Tried and True Chocolate Chip Cookies:
- 2 sticks butter ( not margarine), softened
- 3/4 C Sugar
- 3/4 C Dark Brown Sugar
- 2 Eggs
- 1 Tsp Baking Soda
- 1 Tsp Salt
- 1Tsp Vanilla
- 2 1/2 C Flour
- Chocolate chips
Cream butter, add both sugars and cream well.
Add eggs, and mix thoroughly
Add salt, baking soda, vanilla, mix well.
Add flour mix well. I use an electric hand mixer up to this point
OK about the chocolate chips…
I don’t measure I just add some, mix with a spoon, decide not enough, add some more until I’m satisfied.
Chill dough for at least an hour. Form into balls , bake on ungreased cookie sheets ( or you can line w/ parchment paper) @ 375 for approx 10 min ( ovens and cookie sheets vary…I like mine just when they start to brown on top) .
Chase cookie dough stealers away with wooden spoon while threatening to never make cookies again.
