Cooler temperatures make way for couples to truly enjoy the romance of the beach. The hectic crowds of summer have gone until next year. They leave behind a palpable sense of peacefulness in their wake.
To add to the romance here is a receipt for chocolate covered strawberries
6 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
3 ounces white chocolate, chopped
1 pound strawberries with stems, washed and dried very well
Put the semisweet and white chocolates into two separate heatproof medium bowls. Fill two saucepans with approximate 2-4 inches of water and bring to a simmer. Turn off heat and set the bowls of chocolate over the water to melt. Stir until melted and smooth.
Once melted, remove from the heat. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper. Holding the strawberry by the stem, dip the fruit into the dark chocolate, lift and twist, letting excess chocolate fall back into the bowl. Set strawberries on the paper. Repeat with the rest of the strawberries. Dip a fork in the white chocolate and drizzle the white chocolate over the dipped strawberries.
Set the strawberries aside until the chocolate sets.
