Tuesday was my boss’s last day at Drake. *insert super sad face here*
She’s also pregnant — WITH TWINS! So we had a combination going-away-baby-shower party for her. I made chocolate covered strawberries. YUM.
One thing I learned from this round of chocolate covered strawberries (I’ve had less pretty ones created from previous batches):
BE CAREFUL WITH CHOCOLATE. As in don’t overheat it. Do 30 seconds at a time in the microwave in a glass bowl. And when it looks like it needs about 30 more seconds, instead, stir it for 30-60 seconds to melt the remainder. BINGO. Perfect chocolate. I also used a spatula to drizzle white chocolate over the top. White chocolate is even more picky, so be careful or it will get lumpy and clumpy.
